Firefox 5 is Here Before Schedule and We Are Impressed!

Firefox 5 was scheduled for a release on June 21st and Mozilla has put it on a very strict roadmap this year. However, what makes Firefox awesome recently, is how it is following these deadlines and the way it has released Firefox 5 ahead of a schedule. Yes, Firefox 5 is available ahead of the scheduled 21st June and you can grab it for a download.


We brought you the download of the RC version for Firefox 5 a few days ago and it is full of new features and improvements. The download for Firefox 5 is available at the FTP channel (again) ahead of official announcement and it is available for all platforms. You can get it here at the Firefox 5 FTP directory.

If you are not following things, Firefox 5 is the next stable release of Firefox and you might want to learn some cool Firefox tweaks that go seamlessly with this version. The final build of Firefox 5 is missing a channel switcher and the most appreciated feature in Firefox 5 is the DNT header.

These are links for downloads of English versions.

What follows next is Firefox 6, which is already in alpha and will be seen as a beta release in exactly two weeks from now. Do not uphold that scheduled date too seriously now, Mozilla might surprise us again! I am waiting for download visualizations of Firefox 5, which will follow only from an official release due sometime soon.
