Mozilla: Firefox 3.5 Beta 4 will Ship on Time This Week

,----[ Quote ]
| The Mozilla Foundation says it is still on track to release Firefox 3.5 Beta
4 sometime later this week despite the lack of a firm release date. Beta 4
will likely be the last test version before Mozilla moves on to the release
candidate of Firefox 3.5. However, Mozilla has not made good on many of
Firefox 3.5's deadlines: earlier this year, Mozilla delayed the release of
Beta 3 -- twice -- before moving on to Beta 4, as well as dumping the name
Firefox 3.1 for the snappier Firefox 3.5 to reflect the significant
differences between versions 3.0 and 3.5.

| Javascript engine. Previously developed under the Firefox 3.1 name, version
| 3.5 b4 will be made available in the coming week as well.

| to three" months, Mozilla evangelist Chris Blizzard posted last Friday.


Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 - Superb is too modest

,----[ Quote ]
| You all probably know that Firefox is my favorite browser. It is fast, stable
| and extensible. It is also quite safe. And it looks good, too. Finally, you
| may also have heard that Firefox 3.1, the latest version of this phenomenal
| browser, is coming out soon, promising a revolution in usability and speed.
| In fact, Beta 3 has been publicly released just a few days ago.

| Firefox 3.1 is everything you expected - and then some. It's going to be a
| blast. It's faster, it's more compliant, it has improved privacy, and a range
| of new features that make a great product into a greater one. Audio and video
| tags are particularly interesting, as they open a world of new possibilities
| when it comes to Web and what it means to us. Throw in a whole bunch of
| excellent extensions and the options are virtually limitless.


Mozilla confirm next Firefox will be version 3.5

,----[ Quote ]
| In response to suggestions by developers, the much delayed Firefox 3.1 is to
| become Firefox 3.5 to reflect the "increased scope" of browser's next update.
| The notes from the Firefox developers say that the forthcoming beta 3 will
| still be shipped as Firefox 3.1 while the developers update their tools to
| switch to the new version number.


Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 now available for download

| Please note: Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 is a public preview release intended for
| developer testing and community feedback. It includes many new features as
| well as improvements to performance, web compatibility, and speed. We
| recommend that you read the release notes and known issues before installing
