Firefox 4 Beta 2 Drops

by Developer.com Staff

Firefox 4 beta 2 hit the Web today. The big improvements are a user interface facelift.

It's a few days late, but Mozilla announced the availability of the second Firefox 4 beta today.

Ars Technica's Ryan Paul said, "One of the major user interface additions in beta 2 is support for 'application' tabs. When you convert a regular tab into an app tab by selecting the relevant option from the right-click context menu, the tab will shrink down to just the icon and move to the far left-hand side of the tab bar. When the implementation is complete, the app tabs will eventually persist across sessions."

Firefox 4 is also improving rendering by handling emerging Web standards. CSS3 transitions and transformations are supported in the beta.

You can download the beta here. Visit the Mozilla blog for more information about the Firefox 4 beta.
