What can you expect from new Firefox versions?

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla has started the Firefox development merry-go-round again, updating its Beta, Aurora and Nightly builds to versions 8, 9 and 10, respectively.

The most significant changes between all three versions can be found in Firefox 8 Beta, which includes a number of notable improvements and new features. But there’s also an alternative Nightly build, called Firefox 10.0a1 UX. What is it, and what sets it apart from other releases? Which version should you install? Read on for our updated guide to what’s happening with Firefox.

re: FF

What can you expect?

More borked addon's, new and improved (and more annoying) bugs, an even bigger black hole of memory usage, less and less support or sympathy from Mozilla.

You have to wonder, who died at Mozilla and put the retarded monkey in charge?

The project picks up steam, and you might even get unforeseen help tackling those issues you didn't have bandwidth to tackle yourself. Really, it's the gift that keeps on giving. Read more
