Windows 7: Mozilla launches Firefox 4

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1
 
 

Anyone know what's the difference between final and RC2. I didn't find it in the changelogs either. I installed over the RC and it's looking good. Also if you visit Mozilla | Firefox web browser & Thunderbird email client, you'll see that Firefox 4 is the default now.

Got the official version. Not sure about blurriness, but the fonts do look sharper once the hardware acceleration option is un-ticked.

What about the today's "nightly" 4.0b13pre? Is it the same as the final? Is it the beginning of 5.0?

Not impressed with FF4 at all. When increased in 200mb of RAM for me each second. Was using 2.5GB at one point. All I had open was google. Something isn't right.
