Mozilla Summit 2010

Before we start with our topic Tech18 Staff would like to wish Firefox a Many Many Happy returns of the day. We will wish all the best for its future.

Well finally Firefox back in news after a long delay with their work. Its already more than 2 months Firefox 4 Beta 7 got delayed. On released Sept 14th, 2010 Mozilla team released Firefox 4 Beta 6.

Firefox 4 Beta 7 and Beta 8

Finally wait is over and users will get Beta 7 tomorrow. In today’s weekly meeting Firefox team published the schedule of Firefox’s future updates. In meeting notes they added

FF4.0b7 will be released tomorrow (!!!)

Please add the relnote keyword for any issues that you think should be in the relnotes.

Some users would have already tested beta 7 which was included in build tree last week. And one more good news is, this beta will be feature freeze of FF4.0. Next 3 beta’s will just work on fixing defects/blockers to release FF4.0 asap.

FF 4.0 b7 will be the first version that reveals the entire feature set of Firefox 4 and will include the new JaegerMonkey JavaScript engine for the first time. Hope FF will hit new JavaScript milestones with JaegerMonkey JS.

Its not done yet! Firefox team even mentioned about the next beta i.e. Beta 8. FF4.0 Beta 8 will come out quickly after 3 weeks from now or by early December. Currently 87 blockers are in plate to be fixed to release Beta 8.

Firefox has to work hard and release Firefox 4 asap. Competition from Google Chrome and Internet explorer is increasing day by day and Firefox is already loosing its share every month to them. Hope Firefox will act soon and get back to browsers war.

Watch out this space for more updates!!!

Do you think Firefox will get back to browsers war and fight back against IE and Chrome? We would like to know your response 🙂

    You know what I am thinking that Firefox will soon lose its value, because Google is the master of web and it will gain all over the internet world. Google browser, Google search Engine, and soon will be Google social network, Google TV and a hell of lot more.. I love FF and I still hope that I again comes to market...

    Seems like FF is in a hurry to compete with Chrome's Developmental speed :P

    Waiting forever for it to come out :(. Hopefully it'll get an Release Candidate in a few years with this pace.

    Surprisingly some guy don't mind the problem of privacy with Chrome. As a lot of smart people I strongly recommend Firefox
