Speedy Firefox 9 Beta Versions Take Their Place in Line

Filed under
Moz/FF

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.

The Android version, meanwhile, offers “a completely new experience optimized for tablets that makes mobile browsing more intuitive,” in the project's own words.

Though not intended for production use, the new beta versions are now available for free download from the Future of Firefox site. Here's a look at some of the features you'll find.
