Yes, there will be a Beta 8 release of the next major iteration of Mozillaís open source browser, which is currently in development.
Early adopters can now download and start testing an early preview release of Firefox 4.0 Beta 8
, this despite the fact that Firefox 4.0
Beta 7 has yet to be launched.
Mozilla had initially planned the release of seven Beta Builds of Firefox 4.0, but it appears that the plans have changed.
With a Firefox 4.0 Beta 8 now cooking, itís safe to say that the browser vendor managed to derail from the development schedule it made public when it announced the project earlier this year.
However, itís important to underline that the Firefox 4.0 timetable revealed at the start of the development process wasnít set in stone by any means, and that it could, and it did change.
