Firefox 4 finally ready to roll
Mozilla has announced that Firefox 4 is finally ready to download, after a prolonged testing process that has dragged on since last November.
According to Mozilla, the update should provide faster browsing, improved privacy and better synchronisation between computers.
Mozilla claims Firefox 4 is up to six times faster than the previous release, with the developer promising improved start-up and page load times, plus hardware accelerated graphics.
Consumers that are concerned about their privacy are also catered for, with Mozilla boasting a “Do not track” tool to block behavioural advertising.
The browser has gone through 12 versions of beta tests and was initially expected to be launch five months ago.
We’ll have a full review of Firefox 4 on this website tomorrow. Read this month’s PC Pro magazine for a head-to-head review of Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox 4.
