If all goes according to plan, Firefox 4.0 Beta 7 could be made available for download by the end of October 2010.
Today itís exactly one week since Mozilla delivered the last Beta development milestone of the next generation of its browser.
With the Firefox 4.0 project
, Mozilla was hoping to deliver Beta Builds at a much faster pace, per the Google Chrome model.
And the open source browser vendor pretty much pulled it off for the first six Beta Builds. In fact, Mozilla was prolific enough that it actual decided not to attach numbers to the new Beta releases of Firefox in order to avoid damaging the browserís image.
And beyond the earliest Betas of Firefox 4.0, Mozilla Director of Firefox Mike Beltzner and others started referring to the new releases simply as Beta updates.
But following the release of Firefox 4.0 Beta 6
Mozilla slowed down a tad. So much in fact, that whereas it was offering a new Beta every two to three weeks, it has now been a month since Firefox 4.0 Beta 7 is being built, and fact is that a few more weeks could pass before the Build is offered to early adopters for testing.
