Firefox has taken a page out of Google Chrome‘s development cycle. I can’t even remember how many months passed by before we updated from version 3 to Firefox 4.
With the new faster development cycle, Firefox is moving into a rapid development process. Under the Rapid Release Firefox, you can expect to see cutting edge Firefox features, performance enhancements, security updates and stability improvements more frequently.
Now, you can choose to download Firefox 5 from one of 3 channels
Experience the newest innovations before they go to beta in an environment that’s not for the faint of heart.
Experience cutting edge features but with more stability.
If you aree used to stuff being broke because you are reveling in the cutting edge features, then Aurora is for you. If you depend on Firefox running stable and still want a taste of newer technologies, Beta channel is the best option.
The new Firefox comes with a channel switcher that lets you move between Aurora, beta and release versions of Firefox seamlessly.
Here are the download links for Firefox 5 Aurora and beta versions.
