Earlier this month Mozilla released their first Beta for Firefox 4, we are now hearing that beta 2 is expected to launch before the end of this month.
At the moment July 22nd is looking likely, however this is in no way guaranteed, the main talking point is that it looks as if this beta will bring the tabs on top feature to the Mac version of the application. By default the first Firefox 4 beta applied the tabs on top feature to Windows-based computers.
For those of you who have not experienced tabs on top, it is a slight UI change where the tabs are above the address bar, its simple, but in my opinion vastly improves today’s web browsers. Both Google Chrome and Opera use tabs on top, therefore it seems as if Mozilla are borrowing ideas to stay competitive in today’s web browser market.
Other features which the Firefox 4 beta 2 will offer are currently unclear, however we should know in roughly one weeks time when it launches.
What new features/functionality would you like to see?
