Hard on the heels of the release earlier this week of Firefox 8, Mozilla on Thursday released the beta versions of the next Firefox in line.

The desktop beta version of Firefox 9, which is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, offers enhanced JavaScript performance and new developer tools that make browsing the Web much faster, Mozilla says.
