Firefox 4 just got a great boost performance and now is even faster. A new version of Firefox 4 Beta is now available for download. In the Beta 7 release you will notice that Firefox will launch faster, pages will load quicker, Web apps and games will work better, and the interaction with your favorites website will be snappier. One of the biggest news with Beta 7 is that the Add-ons APIs are now stable, developers now can feel more confident and they should start updating their Add-ons to support Firefox 4.
This is what is new in Firefox 4 Beta 7:
- Hardware-acceleration (compositing) producing better graphics — including for Windows XP and Mac OS X –.
- WebGL for 3D rendering graphics, without the need of extra plugins!
- Support for OpenType fonts.
- Improved HTML5 forms.
Plus with Firefox Sync, Panorama, App Tabs and the new Add-on Manager, will bring a much better web browsing experience.
So, how fast is the new version of Firefox. Here is the benchmark result from The Mozilla blog:
