Mozilla & Gecko clones After a very long development phase, Mozilla has finally officially relased Firefox 4.0. The binaries were already up on the FTP sites yesterday, but today the release became official. Firefox 4.0 packs a heck of a lot of new features, including an entirely new user interface.

Actually, there is a known Windows bug about that, and Microsoft recently released a fix. In principle, Windows Update should get it for you.

Unless, of course, you inherently prefer ClearType-style crisp-but-distorted massively-hinted font rendering. In which case you probably hate Mac OS X's font rendering altogether.
