Mozilla’s FireFox 4 Scheduled To Launch Late February.


This past Tuesday, Mozilla’s senior director of platform engineering, Damon Sicore, commented on the upcoming major release of Firefox 4 via a developer mailing list. The long coming update has been in the works for many months, and includes dramatic speed improvements thanks to the new JägerMonkey JavaScript engine, a more sandboxed design so that crashing plugins *cough…Flash* don’t take down the entire browser, and a revamped user interface among other things. Specifically, ~160 “hard blockers” (read: bugs) still exist. Once that number dips closer towards 100, we should see a release candidate pushed out. If everything goes according to plan, the Mozilla team plans to release Firefox by late February.

Who’s excited for the biggest release in Firefox’s history? (Or have you already moved over to Chrome?)
