The moment many of us have been waiting for is almost here: if nothing goes wrong (and there are small chances for anything getting off track), Firefox 4, the biggest improvement of the browser for a year (Firefox 3.6 was released a year ago), will be available for you guys to download and enjoy. At least that’s what a post by Mozilla’s senior director of platform engineering, Damon Sicore, on the developer forum says.
Sicore has added that there are no problems at the moment that would prevent the browser from shipping on time and that if something will be found, and RC2 will be released as soon as possible.
Firefox 4 is one of the biggest improvements in Firefox history. It includes, among other things, a completely redesigned interface, with tabs that are situated at the top of the window by default, as well as integrated Firefox Sync. Hardware acceleration is used by default on computers using Direct2D in Windows Vista and Windows 7. It uses the GPU to load pages, freeing CPU space and making the loading faster.
I can’t wait to see the final one, but until then, how about learning how to set Firefox 4 as your default browser?
