    Firefox 4 Beta 7 had many bugs, I hope Firefox Beta 8 has fixed it, although this will be last update of Firefox Beta for this year, but we can expect more features in it’s next beta update.
    Hope for the best :)

    If looks about this update rate, I bet that the version 5 will come soon.

    Firefox 3.x was outdated in terms of running speed with Flash and Javascript. Firefox 4 is improving here and also in the UI. Now why they’re rushing with Firefox 5 kinda beats me. They may have something op their sleeve. Perhaps some new internet navigation standards?
