Inside Firefox 3's Latest Beta Update

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla is up to its elbows in code as it works toward the final release of the third iteration of its Firefox Web browser.

With the launch last week of the browser's third beta version, the open source developer has given some 500,000 developers and testers the go-ahead to put the application through its paces.

This latest beta is the 11th developer milestone to test the browser's core functionality and the many new features and changes Mozilla has made to the platform for Firefox 3.

Although Beta 3 includes some 1,300 separate changes from the previous beta, Mozilla said it still has additional changes in the works.

"This beta will give you a taste of what's coming in Firefox 3, but there's still more to come, and much of what you'll see may still be a bit rough around the edges," the company said.

The beta, however, is intended for Web developers and testers for "testing purposes only," Mozilla cautioned.

"We do not recommend that anyone other than developers and testers download the Firefox 3 Beta 3 milestone release," the company warned.
