FireFox 3 inches closer to GM as Mozilla releases beta 4. Sure, the new UI and faster engine is sweet – but the fixes for the memory leaks are huge!
The fourth beta of the Firefox 3.0 browser was released Monday and includes more than 900 enhancements over the previous beta, Mozilla announced.
The creator of the open-source browser said the new beta includes improvements to performance and memory usage, fixes for stability, and platform-specific enhancements. Some of the enhancements include a new download manager to make locating downloads easier; a full page zoom feature that allows you to zoom in and out of pages more easily; and integration for Vista, Mac OS X, and Linux that features platform-specific icons, buttons, and other user interface elements.
If you want to be on the bleeding edge, you can download FireFox from Mozilla now.
