Firefox 3.7 will soon become Firefox 4. Now to help make some sense of this, let me break it down. Right now the latest version of Firefox is 3.6.2. Once Firefox 3.6.4 has been released, then Mozilla’s main development will switch to Firefox 4. Everything that has been Firefox 3.7 since then will now be re-numbered to Firefox 4.
So right now, other than a new interface – what does Firefox 4 bring to the table?
Overall, it looks like the goals of Firefox 4 will be:
- Fast: making Firefox super-duper fast
- Powerful: enabling new open, standard Web technologies (HTML5 and beyond!),
- Empowering: putting users in full control of their browser, data, and Web experience.
According to Mozilla themselves. As you can see from the version number fuzzy math from earlier, nothing is set in stone just yet – but soon we should be getting a lot more news about this epic new version of the Firefox browser.
Are you excited yet, or is it still too early?
