The Mozilla team seems to be back on track with the release of the seventh beta of the upcoming web browser Firefox 4. The release marks a milestone in the development as this is the first feature complete release of version 4 of the Internet browser. What does it mean? That the developers won’t add new features to the browser. All they do from this point in development on is test, test and test to fix bugs and get the browser ready for a prime time release in the beginning of 2011.
The days when the giant orange lizard stood shoulder to shoulder with Tux and the BSD devil seem to be gone. Mozilla is still a great company with plenty of interesting projects, like Thunderbird, Sunbird and Bugzilla. But Firefox is no longer the only standards-compliant choice for the open web.
