images/news/firefox.jpgOn Friday Mozilla released Firefox 4 Beta 9, which will probably be the final beta build - finally! - for this browser before we hit Release Candidate and an official release sometime towards the end of February

If you’ve been keeping up with the beta builds and have been using the Beta 8 release (released December 22) then you’re not going to see a lot of changes in Beta 9. In fact, going by the release notes there’s only two changes of any importance highlighted by Mozilla:

* Overhaul of the bookmarks and history code, enabling faster bookmarking and startup performance
* Per-compartment garbage collection is now enabled, reducing work done during complex animations

I had too many issues with firefox 4. Hope they are fixed...

The most annoying were... 1) TOO MANY CRASHES
2) it took about 5-7 MINUTES for it start up...LITERALLY...

Firefox 3 doesn't do that.

Thanks
