Mozilla launched Firefox 4 Beta 8 back in December, and it looks like they are getting closer to the final release of Firefox 4, as one of the Firefox team members has announced that Firefox 4 will launch by the end of February 2011.
It looks like the release candidate of Firefox 4 should be available at the beginning of February with the final version available at the end of February.
We’ve worked tremendously hard on Firefox 4, and it’s time to ship it. I’m seeing the same burst of excitement and activity that we’ve seen in the endgame of every release. Over the past several days, component leads have again reduced their blockers by identifying hard blockers and those we can live without. We’ve around 160 hard blockers remaining, and historically it has taken us six weeks to reach RC once we have 100 blockers left. We must press hard now.
It will be interesting to see how Firefox 4 performs, and whether Mozilla will be able to make it faster and better.
