Mike Beltzner, Mozilla’s Director of Firefox has recently made an announcement outlining a vision for Firefox 4 in a recent blog post.

This can as well be called an early product plan and he introduces it with the lines,

Today, I presented an early product plan for Firefox 4 to the Mozilla community (live, over the web!) to share our vision for the next version of Firefox, and what projects are underway to realize it. Then I invited everyone to get involved by joining our engineering or product development efforts.

The primary goal of Firefox 4 development will be according to Mike, making Firefox “super-duper fast”. Other features which they are aiming at are enabling new open web standards and allowing more user control over the browser and their browsing.

To better understand this, you can see the slide presentation Mike has prepared on his blog.

Now getting to the goals, open web standards and user control are already increasing day by day on Firefox. Firefox is quick to adapt to new web standards. Though, one thing to watch out for is how and by how much they are improving Firefox in terms of speed and making it super-duper fast as claimed. Firefox 3.7 is expected to become Firefox 4.0 by the end of this year.

One thought on “What to Expect From Firefox 4”

  1. I don't see any big change in firefox, they always try to make it fast but that can't be the reason to have a new version series, They must be changing something else like javascript engine, or they should introduce web SQL or they should provide full support for HTML5 otherwise its waste to release a new version. Its just a way to attract user to dwonload a new version with the same features.
