    Hello,

    Firefox 4 is going to be unleashed soon. To let you know what to expect from the upcoming release, I've take the latest beta for a spin. Enjoy a fairly long and detailed review of Firefox 4 beta, including testing on Windows (XP and 7) and Linux (Ubuntu Lucid and openSUSE 11.2), both 32-bit and 64-bit machines, with main topics covered including new looks, tabs on top, tab grouping, sync, feedback button, HTML5 features, revamped addons manager, performance, responsiveness, speed, memory usage, and more. You will like it. I was even gentle toward the Web 2.0 generation features. Have fun.

    P.S. Tomorrow, it's IE9 and then a head-to-head comparison :)

    Cheers,
    Mrk

    After disabling Tabs on Top and Tab Grouping which is what I will be doing initially after seeing the screenshots - it should be interesting to see how it performs on a day to day basis as compared with v3.x

    Thanks for the review. :thumb:
