A new beta release of Firefox 4 has finally been made available. What was the hold-up, you ask? Well, with Firefox 4.0 beta 7 being tagged as the feature freeze, Mozilla had to make sure that everything they planned on being built-in by default was ready for prime-time testing. And since there’s no shortage of new features and improvements in Firefox 4, it stands to reason that beta 7 took a little while to get here.
There’s also better HTML5 support, WebGL for 3D awesomeness, and Firefox 4 beta 7 can now utilize OpenType fonts on Web pages. You’re looking at the final version of Firefox 4, really. Since no new features will be added from this point forward, it’s all about squashing bugs and preventing crashes between now and launch day.
We’ll have more Firefox 4 coverage throughout the day, so stay tuned!
