Clearly intent on testing the living hell out of its popular Firefox browser before officially launching the next full iteration, open-source proponent Mozilla Corp. has rounded out 2010 with an eighth beta version of Firefox 4.
Although Firefox 4 Beta 8 doesn’t actually present users with anything new, it does enhance a number of core features, including the speed, compatibility, and functionality of WebGL, the Firefox Add-ons Manager, and the set-up experience of Firefox Sync.
The Beta 8 release also works to fix more than 1,400 known bugs, all of which can be viewed in full by clicking here—if you have the time and inclination.
Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux-based systems, the Beta 8 release is available for download from the Mozilla website, and can be grabbed by clicking this direct link.
A further two beta releases and a number of release candidates are expected from Mozilla Corp. before the final build of Firefox 4 is unleashed in 2011.
