Mozilla Expects to Release Firefox 3.0 Final in June


Recommended Posts

Mozilla Corp. Thursday confirmed that it will release the final beta of Firefox 3.0 shortly, and that it expects to deliver the finished browser to users in June.

Firefox 3.0 Beta 5 has been code-frozen, said Mike Schroepfer, Mozilla's vice president of engineering, and is working its way toward release. "That will be the last beta for Firefox 3.0," he said. Once Beta 5 is out of the way, developers will move to the Release Candidate (RC) stage.

Release Candidate 1 (RC1) should be ready sometime in early May, said Schroepfer, assuming Mozilla meets its current schedule. "The release candidates will move a little slower than beta," he continued, noting that the company must make allowances for public feedback.

I have never tried the betas. Are they any faster?

Firefox 3 Beta 4 is 5x faster than IE7, 3x faster than FF2


Firefox 3 memory tests


Memory usage of Firefox 3 (beta 4) is lower than FF2 and much lower than IE7.

I've installed FF3 beta but I didn't like the theme very much. Anyhow most addons will be automatically updated for the FF3b4 version if you hit the button make all compatible :cheff:
