Tag Archives: Firefox 4

Today, we released the next beta for Firefox 4 – the fourth one, for what it’s worth. This might be the biggest beta release yet. Most notably, it features Firefox Panorama (previously referred to as Tab Candy) and Firefox Sync, which allows you to sync your desktop browser with things like your phone and other computers in your house or office or wherever else. CNET posted a good, unbiased summary of the update earlier today. If you’re interested at all in the future of tab and task management, definitely check out the latest beta.

Also of note: the refreshed Mozilla Developer Network, as I’ve been discussing in many of my posts below, releases tonight, meaning that when you go to developer.mozilla.org tomorrow morning, you should be able to see the hard work Jay, the web development team, and I have been putting into the MDN over the past few weeks (or months). Expect a long post detailing that in the near future!

Hey, everyone!

Earlier today, the third beta for Firefox 4.0 went live. Most prominent of the changes include support for multitouch gestures on Windows 7 machines and revisions to the JS engine so that pages render faster. If you haven’t gotten it already, find it here.

I’ll be publishing another post soon detailing my work from the past couple of weeks. Stick around!

A quick aside from my summary posts: download the Firefox 4 beta 2 to check out application tabs and a sweet new Mac OS X interface. The alpha for Tab Candy is also available as an early build of Firefox, if you’re interested in trying that out as well.

For a more detailed rundown of the new beta, check out the Hacks blog for a sweet demo from our very own Paul Rouget!

Happy developing!
