Now that I have been using Firefox 4 (as a beta) I can take a look at some of the neat add-ons I might have missed because they were not updated to run with the current version of Firefox.

Mozilla Labs has released a very interesting new browser interface you can try out in Firefox 4.

It really does bring a radically different way to use Firefox right to your fingertips. Is it worth using?
