Default Firefox 4 beta 11 slated for release tomorrow (posted Feb 7)

Quote:
The 11th beta of Firefox 4 is expected to be released tomorrow, Feb. 8, one lead developer announced.

In an update posted this evening, chief developer Christian Legnitto said the time has come for the next-to-last beta of Firefox4.

“QA has signed off on Firefox 4 beta 11. We intend to push it to mirrors tonight/ tomorrow morning PST … and release to the beta audience tomorrow , 2011-02-08,” wrote Legnitto.

He noted that the code may not be ready for broad distribution Tuesday morning due to last minute prep work. “So don’t expect to wake up in the morning to “Firefox 4 beta 11 has been released” news articles,” he wrote.

The team plans to release beta 12 following this release. The final Firefox 4 is slated to be released late this month.

Well if they have fixed the annoying problems when moving the browser over to a 2nd monitor then i'm happy.

They really need to make this release final. Finally end the need for -moz- in front of every CSS3 value!

Well at least there is one good this about this. If you update your Nightly Tester Tools from the site to version 3.1 you can finally force your other extensions to work with the Beta.

I'll give this one a spin, but I make no promises. Thus far I have not been impressed with the betas.

The only reason I use the beta is because of the integrated sync between PCs, since I never really liked Xmarks; it was awkward and unreliable.

In the release notes this seems like a pretty sparse beta, but I've definitely noticed that it takes up less system resources..

sometimes... just checked it and with 6 tabs and a bunch of extensions / addons it's at 500mb
