Moz/FF

Google's Chrome 2.0 speeded up after dropping its beta and Opera 10 beta claiming a better browsing speed, all eyes are on Mozilla's new Firefox version hyped to touch Amazing feats of speed. Last Friday Mozilla issued the new browser's first release candidate. It seems to be the most stable and polished make after the year-long development process. Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate (RC) was the first milestone following the beta 4 released in late April.

Earlier Mozilla had plans to release the Firefox 3.5 RC in the first week of June. They had to delay the release of Firefox 3.5 RC a number of times due to the lingering bugs that needed a fix. Mozilla took an unusual step this month by issuing an interim build two weeks ahead of the scheduled date, which it describes as the nearly finished RC. The Preview was made available for 800,000 daily users of Beta 4.
