Windows 7: Firefox 4.0 beta 3 released

Firefox 4.0 beta 3 released

Quote:
With Beta 3, the pre-release flavor of the next major iteration of Firefox is available in no less than 34 languages, and brings to the table a variety of changes on top of the bug fixes that are inherent to the evolution from one development milestone to another.

An important new feature is related to the tailoring of Firefox 4.0 to Windows 7, and the operating system’s Natural User Interface (NUI), namely multi-touch capabilities.

“Web authors can now get touch events from Firefox users on Windows 7 machines,” Mozilla stated.

The company noted that Beta 3 also adds “a new way of representing values in JavaScript that allows Firefox to execute heavy, numeric code (used for things like graphics and animations) more efficiently.”

Essentially, starting with Beta 3, Firefox 4.0 will allow users running Windows 7 on touch-capable hardware to virtually get a “hands-on” experience for the open source browser.

“Experimental support for touch events is added in Gecko 2.0. These allow you to track the movement of the user's finger on a touch screen, monitoring the raw touch events generated by the system,” Mozilla explained.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been waiting for this for a while. Hopefully they fixed that issue I had with a Facebook app.

I heard adblock plus doesn't work with this version; is that true?
