Mozilla & Gecko clones According to a post on the mozilla.dev.planning Google Group by Mozilla Senior Director of Engineering, Damon Sicore, the ship date for the stable version of Firefox 4, Tuesday 22 March, has been approved by Mozilla's IT and Marketing teams. Sicore notes that, should the developers discover any last-second blocker bugs that would prevent the final release, a second release candidate would be issued "as soon as possible" and the ship date would be reset. So far, the first RC has "received a very warm welcome", said Sicore.

I've been using FF4 for a month. I haven't had any issues. A lot of sites actually work better (blogspot in particular).

Uh, really ? I mean, I'm glad to hear that, because I've had to resort to Chrome editing my blogspot entries, FF3 was terribly slow and clumsy. so good news. The bad news is that the Linux builds doesn't seem to have the option to enable that Ribbon-like button, just as on Windows builds, or have I got it somehow wrong ?
The next releases, adopting the Chrome's numbering with major digit, should bring, as they say, response of less than 50 ms for each user action, which is my pain with FF - the UI was very slow, compared to the usual counterparts. So, I hope for the best in a few weeks.

Hide the menu bar.
