  1. Mozilla has released Firefox 4 Beta 8. The new beta build was originally intended as a quick update for the feature-complete Beta 7 release, but it turns out it's pretty significant as it includes 1415 bugfixes, an improved add-ons manager, better WebGL support, and enhancements to the URL bar.

    "Beta 8 was delayed till November 12, but clearly it didn't make the new deadline either. There's still a Beta 9 and a Beta 10 before we see the release candidate builds arrive, but all of those will hit in early 2011."

    LOL...whatever happened to ONE beta test before release?

    Your not kidding, I've been hearing about FF4 for so long now I'm bored, and its still not even a release candidate!

    I seriously hope its absolutely and utterly faultless upon its final release; any other reason is not a good enough excuse for the delay.

    I haven't had many issues with Betas since # 2 I think, and using it as my main browser ....... I don't care when they will release the final version, as long as the betas keep coming fast arrrrrr getting fast I mean :)

    You can't compare Mozilla with Google really, difference in financial resources available to each of these entities are well out of this world to put it mildly.

    I'm getting a little tired of all the waiting until the "real thing" comes out...but, as has been stated, since I pay $0 for it I guess I can't complain too loudly.
