Yeah, has been for a while. Let's hope they don't pull it. It's been known to happen. My statement about downloading the official beta 8 release from only the links you and I have provided still stands.

Thanks, yowanvista.

I noticed that popups look different now in Beta 8, coming from Beta 7.

I will wait for 4.8 and use 4.7 in the meantime.

Is the speed difference in .8 noticeable from .7?

Hardly noticeable. It even disables my Flashblock booo... Sticking with Beta 7 for a while until some of my addons get upgraded.

Still, the changelogs are very promising.

Indeed, yowanvista.

In other people's opinions: is firefox 4b8 better than chrome 8? Firefox is more customizeable than chromium.

Pm me answer I wanna know should I switch back?

I'd love to send you a PM, kcmartz, but the browser wars (a bit of nostalgia) are full steam ahead here.

Try it. In the end, use whatever browser you like best.
