Windows 7: Firefox 5.0 Beta

Installed Beta 7 from 4.01, and pleasantly surprised that all of my addons and specific user style work, even though some of them only stated to work up to FF 4.

Nice.

Memory usage is better too. It always stays in the 300-500 MB range after some use (10-15 tabs left open). The addons work too .. missing colourful tabs but I'm sure it will be updated soon enough!

Personally, Colourful Tabs was terrible. It made everything look out of place... but that's just my opinion.

Just updated from FF5.0b3 to FF5.0b7. I still think they should introduce some new look (however slight) into 5.0 though. Still looks quite similar to 4.0.

FF 4 was a new look from all FF prior versions. I'm sure they're going to stick with this look for quite some time.

I would still like Mozilla to change the appearance slightly every new version.

I know... but a man can dream. I just saw this. Apparently, v5.0 will be released on the 21st of June. A bit too soon in my opinion.

Have you checked Stratiform out? Lets you tweak the appearance to your liking.

Why?

Anyone who's been following FF news knows that they've changed the way they number versions months ago, and are going to release FF 5, 6 and 7 in 2011. That's why 5 is already here when they just released 4 in March of this year.

Normally would have been a much longer wait until we saw 5.

Firefox 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 and 7.0 to Ship in 2011
Firefox 5.0 to Launch 16 Weeks after 4.0, Firefox 6.0 Just 6 Weeks aft

Shame since I hate to FF4 look and wish the 3.6 UI was still around. I am ok with the changes under the hood. Still they will need to re-implement the classic UI and even then I will have to wait till all my addons are updated.

Still I am looking forward to reading about the new features of FF5
