Mozilla launches 2010's last Firefox 4 beta

Mozilla Logo
Originally slated to appear last month, then delayed until December, Beta 8 of the open-source browser first appeared today, a day later than planned, on Mozilla's official download site & as updates for existing preview users.

Mozilla Wednesday shipped Firefox 4 Beta 8, the last preview it will release this year before it makes a run toward a final version in 2011.

The newest beta includes simplified setup for Firefox Sync, Mozilla's bookmark, password & open tabs synchronization service; additional Windows & Mac graphics card support for WebGL, the under-development standard for 3-D graphics rendering; & a revamped extension manager that silently updates any installed add-ons.
