    Firefox 4 Released Early

    Firefox 4 now available to download, official release tomorrow

    It's due for release tomorrow but you can grab it now. This is the final copy, not the RC.

    Just installed - been playing with the beta for a while without any problems so just installed. Thanks for the heads up.
    Can't live without my menu bar though - that's the first thing I put back !!

    I've been using Beta for a while. The thing that irks me most is the repositioning of "refresh" button.

    Finally downloaded the RC yesterday actually, and I must say, I'm liking it very much. It certainly feels snappier. Bit of a shock at first to see the chrome shrunk so much (and the tabs moved) but I'm liking it now.

    I hadn't even noticed the refresh button moving... I set up TabMixPlus to refresh on double click of a tab, always found that much more useful (and an easier target to hit with a cursor)

    From the linked page:

    Update: Mozilla has asked us to say that this might not turn out to be the actual final build. It's still going through QA right now, and something might come up. Don't worry though: your browser will automatically update if a new build is released.

    I accidentally shift-deleted my old profile while installing this last night. Probably for the best

    I'm finding it to be very responsive at work. My laptop is terribly slow but Firefox was changing pages almost instantly.

    The U.K. is in fourth place on Mozilla's live download stats map. Germany is currently winning...

    Using it and loving the performance increase. Has anyone noticed a font rendering difference between 4.0 and 3.6, though? My eyes don't seem to like it since upgrading... :/
