Mozilla Firefox is a fast, full-featured browser for Windows that makes browsing more efficient than ever before. Firefox includes pop-up blocking; a tab-browsing mode that lets you open several pages in a single window; integrated Google searching; simplified privacy controls that let you cover your tracks more effectively; a streamlined browser window that shows you more of the page than any other browser; and a number of additional features that work with you to help you get the most out of your time online.

Additional features include
  • Live Bookmarks - RSS integration lets you read the latest news headlines and read updates to your favorite sites that are syndicated.
  • Extensions - Small add-ons that add new functionality to your Mozilla program.
  • Themes - Allows you to change the way your Mozilla program looks with new graphics and colors.
  • Privacy and Security - Built with your security in mind, Firefox keeps your computer safe from malicious spyware by not loading harmful ActiveX controls.
  • Plugins - Programs that allow websites to provide content to you and have it appear in your browser.
Firefox also comes with a standard set of developer tools including a powerful Javascript and CSS error/warning console, and an optional Document Inspector that gives detailed insight about your pages.

Scanned & Checked: Jan 15 2013 09:38 AM

When we last updated Mozilla Firefox, we made sure it was still virus and malware free and the developer's site had no proven issues in any of the reputable site advisory services. In the unlikely event you notice any issues, please let us know immediately, otherwise we will schedule this software for another scan the next time it is updated.

Marko - I've received reports from a trusted source who has been testing FF 4 Beta that is not much of an improvement. Rendering speeds seem around the same and resource usage remains high.

I hope my source is wrong!!!! :(
I know I did have issues with FF in the past Jimbo, things seemed to have settled down now though, will be giving the Beta a whirl a little later so will post back then :)
Cheers
Marko
Hmm, curiosity just got the better of me Jim and I decided to give it a test drive right now - first impressions, well, does seem a little nippier for me - on install the beta version did inform me that a couple of my extensions were not supported so this could 'theoretically' be what is making the browser seem a little faster, but navigating around FreewareBB and a few other regular sites does definitely seem somewhat snappier!.

From the splash page of FF Beta ... "Firefox 4 now includes major performance enhancements, including our brand new JägerMonkey JavaScript engine. From faster start up times and graphics rendering to improved page load speed, you'll notice the difference instantly."

Well, for me, I'd have to agree for now, starting up FireFox does seem much faster as well, so for the moment it's full marks from me :)

Excellent news Marko!!! Thanks for taking the trouble....you put me to shame!

Of course, I do not know the exact conditions under which my 'source' is testing. May be that she (yes, it is a female) has 74 add-ons installed and 16 tabs open. :)
8th. Beta due out in about a week.
substantial {core} changes expected.
I found the acceleration just when you start your browser. Turn off three extensions. No further improvement is not noticed.
