images/news/firefox.jpgFirefox 4 Beta 1 is now ready to download and test!

If you are using a Windows PC, the most noticeable new feature will be the look of the browser. Tabs have been moved to the top like in Chrome. Other changes include:

  • New Add-Ons Manager: gives you more space to manage your Add-Ons, Themes and Plugins. Customizing your browser has never been easier!
  • HD Video: Watch hardware-accelerated, super-smooth, HD-quality HTML5 video on YouTube using the new WebM format.
  • Privacy improvements: Mozilla always puts privacy first, and this latest beta fixes flaws in some Web standards that could expose your browser history.
  • Crash Protection: Experience uninterrupted browsing (now available on all platforms) when a plugin crashes or freezes, you can resume browsing by simply refreshing the page.
  • Performance: We know that performance is important. In this version, we focused on improving responsiveness at start-up and during page loads. This is just the beginning for performance improvements in Firefox 4.

I liked the new visual and it seems to be faster than v.3.6.7, but I experienced a few crashes... but nothing intolerable for a beta.

That's coz you moved the cache from your 16 stack SSD array on to a mechanical effort, should be fixed in Beta 10 (support for not writing to SSD's).
