Firefox 3 Beta 4 Available for Download

Firefox 3 is one more step closer to its final release with Firefox 3 Beta 4 now available for download.

Here is a gist of new features in this release:

  • Better search support in the download manager and the ability to zoom entire page or full text.
  • Better integration with Vista, Linux and Mac
  • Better personalization with the address bar history based on site visit recency and frequency
  • Improved support for data storage for web applications
  • Comes with better performance than before with improvements to the javascript engine which helps with loading time as well as memory usage.

If you don’t like browsers crashing on you in the middle of your day, Firefox 3 final release should be coming out in a few weeks. This is for you if you can’t wait to see what’s coming in the new version and if you haven’t already tried the Firefox 3 Beta 3 release. :-)

In fact, they say this is a milestone release aimed at developers and testers for testing purpose only. Please do read all the bugs and features in this release before downloading it.

    Hmm, I’m going to hold out for add-on compatibility. :wink:

    I choose not to download this version. It’s better to wait for the final release. I am sure it will be just around the corner.

    Mark.. check out my this week’s extension picks post. They are offering free t-shirts to extension developers to encourage them to make the add-ons compatible with Firefox! :wink:

    Rakshit.. it sure is just around the corner. I use FF 2 still on my main desktop but play with FF3 in my laptop to stay ahead on reporting to my readers. :lol:

    This was the first beta version I tried on my laptop. Looks good to me.

    I like the improvements too Nirmal. It’s definitely a little bit snappier than the last version. :-)
