Firefox 4 Beta 8 Coming December 21, Beta 9 Teased

Filed under
Moz/FF

The next Firefox 4 Beta is scheduled for a release next Tuesday, while the following beta is already being teased as a pre-release. Mozilla is also reacting to the accelerated release schedule of Chrome and is evaluating new release models, including the integration of a Chrome-like Flag model of beta features.

One more delay for Firefox 4 Beta 8. Mozilla will not be rolling out the browser this week, but wait until next Tuesday, according to the latest release schedule published by Mozilla. There is a good chance that Mozilla will also revise its delayed release schedule of the RC coming in early 2011, as we know that there will be at least two more betas and Mozilla currently needs about 4 to 6 weeks. Beta 7 was released on November 10 and Beta 8 was originally scheduled for and end of November launch.

However, on a positive note, the total number of beta blockers has been reduced dramatically.

That's IBM's big challenge: Translating its open source expertise into real, differentiated value for developers on its cloud. Read more
