If you like living on the cutting edge of software, you’ll want to download Firefox 4.0 beta 1.

Those keeping track of such things will know that Firefox 4.0 was previously known as 3.7. That aside, there are some cool new features available in this release:



Whats new?

- Tabs are now on top by default on Windows only - OSX and Linux will be changing when the theme has been modified to support the change.
- On Windows Vista and Windows 7 the menu bar has been replaced with the Firefox button.
- You can search for and switch to already open tabs in the Smart Location Bar
- New Addons Manager and extension management API (UI will be changed before final release)
- Significant API improvements are available for JS-ctypes, a foreign function interface for extensions.
- The stop and reload buttons have been merged into a single button on Windows, Mac and Linux.
- The Bookmarks Toolbar has been replaced with a Bookmarks Button by default (you can switch it back if you’d like).
- Crash protection for Windows, Linux, and Mac when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, - - - - Apple Quicktime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins.
- CSS Transitions are partially supported.
- Full WebGL support is included but disabled by default at this time.
- Core Animation rendering model for plugins on Mac OS X. Plugins which also support this rendering model can now draw faster and more efficiently.
- Native support for the HD HTML5 WebM video format.
- An experimental Direct2D rendering backend is available on Windows, turned off by default.
- Web developers can use Websockets for a low complexity, low latency, bidirectional communications API.
- Web developers can update the URL field without reloading the page using HTML History APIs.
- More responsive page rendering using lazy frame construction.
- Link history lookup is done asynchronously to provide better responsiveness during pageload.
- CSS :visited selectors have been changed to block websites from being able to check a user’s browsing history.
- New HTML5 parser.
- Support for more HTML5 form controls.

Release notes here

Mozilla has released Firefox 4 Beta 2 yesterday

The “big” new feature in Firefox 4 Beta 2 is App Tabs, which resembles Google Chrome’s Pin Tab feature. Every tab in Firefox has a new option on right-click to convert it into an App Tab. Those tabs are reduced to their Favicon and placed on the leftmost side of the tabbar.

The release notes contain additional changes and feature descriptions, including:

    * Tabs are now on top by default on Windows and OSX – Linux will be changing when the theme has been modified to support the change.
    * Responsiveness and scrolling improvements from the new retained layers layout system.
    * JavaScript speed improvements due to engine optimizations.
    * You can search for and switch to already open tabs in the Smart Location Bar
    * The stop and reload buttons have been merged into a single button on Windows, Mac and Linux.
    * The Bookmarks Toolbar has been replaced with a Bookmarks Button by default (you can switch it back if you’d like).
    * Full WebGL support is included but disabled by default at this time
    * Native support for the HD HTML5 WebM video format.
    * An experimental Direct2D rendering backend is available on Windows, turned off by default.
    * More responsive page rendering using lazy frame construction.
    * Link history lookup is done asynchronously to provide better responsiveness during pageload.
    * CSS :visited selectors have been changed to block websites from being able to check a user’s browsing history.
    * New HTML5 parser, Support for more HTML5 form controls.

Looking good.
Last I've heard IBM has adopted Firefox as their standard PC browser.
Firefox or Chrome: you can't go wrong with those. Smiley
