Mozilla outs Firefox 4 beta

Written by Fudzilla staff


Shiny new tabs
Mozilla has unleashed Firefox 4 beta on the unsuspecting public and it appears that the new beast is quite a looker.

It’s based on the Gecko 2.0 engine and offers quite a few tweaks and all-new features. The new version is supposedly more responsive, secure and less likely to crash when plugins fail.

Panorama is a relative novelty and you might have already seen it in action some time ago, when it was still called Candy Tabs. It lets users navigate through numerous tabs in grid view, which should come in handy in a number of scenarios.

The beta also offers improved support for CSS transitions, HTML5 and experimental Direct2D rendering backend.

You can check out the full release notes here.

The article should say Firefox 4 beta 4.

Gecko 2.0 supports CSS3 transitions, try the following code in your style sheet...

* {-moz-transition-property: background-color, background-image, border, color, opacity; -moz-transition-duration: 0.8s;}

D2D looks like it needs lots of work. I had 5 crashes yesterday with it turned on. I wonder if they can manage to get it working correctly in the short time frame they have chosen. What about the new JaegerMonkey javascript engine which isn't even in there yet? It's hard to see how they will have it ready and properly tested to come out on the current schedule:

I started since beta 1 and I love what they did with the add-on manager. So far beta 4 has not crashed on me once with almost 20 add-ons installed although a few are disabled due to compatibility. It really is a big improvement speedwise as well. Though honestly I like having the menu toolbar enabled still, that big orange firefox button does not look good.
