.Firefox 7.0 Alpha 1 (nightly build) is now available for download for Windows, Mac and Linux. You can download the latest build as the Mozilla team works on it and regularly updates the nightly build daily. Firefox 5.0 was also just released yesterday for download.
Those of you trying to use Firefox 7.0a1 will be facing an issue that none of your Firefox addons would be working in this browser due to compatibility issues and you will have to hack your way through so that Firefox 7.0 doesn’t check for extension updates and disables them.
The first ‘nightly’ alpha build of Firefox 7.0 is now already available for download. It is regularly updated with new changes and updates as the Mozilla team works on it.
However, you will not be able to use your Firefox add0ns and extensions due to compatibility issues and you will have to hack your way through so that Firefox 7.0 doesn’t check for extension updates and disables them. We’ll do a step-by-step tutorial on that later on.
Firefox 5 is now available for download. We talked about the rapid fast development channel of Firefox, knows as Firefox Aurora – which now looks into action as the Firefox 5.0 is now already available for download after five weeks of testing on the Aurora channel and then another few weeks in five beta releases.
Looks like, soon after this we are about to see the Firefox 6 to hop on the Aurora channel and be ready for the final release soon. The first ‘nightly’ builds of Firefox 6 are already available for download since April.
After the minor Firefox 4.0.1 update, we wrote about Firefox 5.0 Alpha 2, and now – Firefox 6.0 Alpha 1. The first alpha version is now available and at least we don’t find any major changes in it so far. May be in the next few releases.
Firefox development sure seems on steroids these days, specially after how much time they took with the Firefox 4 development.
We have already discussed about Mozilla’s plans to speed up Firefox development. Firefox 5.0 is expected to be released sometime in June. And for that, Mozilla has already released Firefox 5.0a2 on the Firefox Aurora channel.
Firefox Aurora channel will allow you to experience the newest Firefox innovations in an unstable environment that’s not for the faint of heart. These releases will include early developmental stages of Firefox updates.
Firefox 4.0.1 has been released for download. The latest update brings a number of bug fixes, security issues and some minor changes to the browser.
You can update your Firefox 4 now to get the latest Firefox 4.0.1. A new feature, similar to Chrome, has been introduced in Firefox 4.0.1 for automatic update. Firefox will now automatically update, just like Google Chrome does.
Firefox 6 Download Manager will be getting a major redesign. The short release cycle of Firefox won’t bring big changes with every update, but still have updates here and there, just like Chrome does.
It’s almost going to be a month, since Firefox 4 was released. It brought a number of new features, improvements to the browser. Along that, Firefox 4 also introduced a few new buttons and shortcuts.
Mozilla Links have listed the new Firefox 4 shortcuts. You can see them after the jump.
After covering lots of Firefox 4.0 themes, here is another one if you liked Maxthon.
MX3 is a Firefox 4 theme, based on Maxthon 3. A very clean and light UI. I’m actually liking my Firefox a lot more with this theme than the default one.
