Mozilla’s latest version of its Firefox web browser is coming in the market. If everything goes according to plan i.e. if developers don’t find any tricky bugs, the final version of Firefox 4 should be released March 22, according to a message posted on Firefox’s official forum.
“As of now, there are no known affairs that would halt us from shipping RC1 as final. March 22nd is the day we would ship. If at any time we detect issues that would block final release, we would issue an RC2 as soon as possible, reset the ship date, and communicate to everyone.” writes Mozilla’s Damon Sicore.
Firefox 4 has assured a host of new features and improvements. The browser will add assistance for HTML5 components and originate hardware acceleration for Windows, Mac and Linux systems.
Advanced security and privacy controls will also be comprised in the browser. Firefox 4 will exhibit a “do not track” mode, which will enable users to opt out of behavioral tracking tools used by some websites.
The announcement of Firefox 4 will extend an already busy season in the browser market. Earlier this month, Microsoft launched Internet Explorer 9, revised many in the industry praised as a major step forward for Microsoft.
