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.

A while ago I was bitching a lot about the delay, but I see why they got it late. Been using it since 2.X, I'm very satisfied with the results, using it on Linux only. The ribbon button is very cool, the tabs on top, the theme I've got makes it even nicer, all of my addons are compatible, some of the new I've installed do not require restart (thanks to Jetpack), speed improvements are noticeable in both UI and web pages, all other performance issues I've had are now gone. The Pin tab feature is very useful, the addon page is cool, overall, very positive feeling, well done Mozilla. No crashes, no memory issues (never had, actually).

For the next rounds of updates they want to make smaller releases: Firefox 5 in 3 months !

(less new features ofcourse)

And another 2 releases after that this year, I hope they can keep that 'promise'.
