Firefox 4 Beta 1 Available for Downloads

Mozilla has just announced the availability of Firefox 4 Beta 1 for downloads. The Firefox 4 Beta 1 gives a glimpse of the future of Firefox and the upcoming Firefox 4 release. The new features in Firefox 4 are pretty exciting and I am trying them out as we speak so keep an eye on the review for Firefox 4.


Firefox 4 Beta 1 has several new features which include:

New Add-Ons Manager: gives you more space to manage your Add-Ons, Themes and Plugins. Customizing your browser has never been easier!

HD Video: Watch hardware-accelerated, super-smooth, HD-quality HTML5 video on YouTube using the new WebM format.

Privacy improvements: Mozilla always puts privacy first, and this latest beta fixes flaws in some Web standards that could expose your browser history.

Crash Protection: Experience uninterrupted browsing (now available on all platforms) when a plugin crashes or freezes, you can resume browsing by simply refreshing the page.

Performance: We know that performance is important. In this version, we focused on improving responsiveness at start-up and during page loads. This is just the beginning for performance improvements in Firefox 4.

Firefox 4 Beta 1 fully integrates including videos and offline storage. The beta also sports a new look which Mozilla has been working on for a long time. If you are interested you can download the Firefox 4 Beta 1 from here. A full review of Firefox 4 beta 1 will be posted shortly, so stay tuned.

    I think the tabs up top and the one button menu option makes it look a lot more like Opera or Chrome..
