Tuesday, December 29, 2009

The disappointing news came from the company Mozilla, known as the creator of the popular browser Firefox. Despite the best efforts of developers, release the final version of Firefox 4.0, is the next major upgrade of time within the browser, has been postponed to the end of 2010 or even 2011.

Earlier release the final version of Firefox 4.0 was scheduled for the third or fourth quarter of next year. At the same time until it appears we will have release versions of Firefox 3.6, codenamed Namoroka, Issue which has also been previously transferred to the first quarter of 2010, as well as versions of Firefox 3.7.

Note that for the browser Firefox 4.0, built on the engine Gecko 1.9.4, Mozilla's plan many improvements, including a completely redesigned user interface and improvements in engine Tracemonkey. In addition, we plan to implement the ability to run tabs as separate processes that increase the security of the browser. So Firefox 4.0, is probably worth waiting so long.
