  1. The fifth beta version of Firefox 4 has landed, marking another milestone for the browser and bringing us a bit closer to the final release. The latest build doesn't add many features, but there are a few noteworthy changes. GPU acceleration, which was introduced in beta 4, is now enabled by default for Windows 7 users, so you don't have to make any changes in about:config -- unless you want to disable it. If that's the case, follow the first three steps here, except set the entry to "false" instead of "true".

  2. Meh... Firefox Beta 6 will show the real thing. Gecko 2.0 + Jaegermonkey? That's the real competition.

    I love FF and have used since the beginning. Version 4 marked the first time I wanted to participate in beta testing. Sadly I have dropped it again after a month or so in favour of version 3 because it crashed... a lot. I am still an avid user though :)

    So far so good with the FF4 Betas ...... but with this latest one, now I also get how many FPS are being rendered, and Techspot came about at 50 FPS at max ;) ............ Although after sometime it may get bit annoying and one would want to turn off FRAPS so you can clearly see the Menu button.
