I've tried it. I kind of like the new look, and it's definitely faster than FF has been in past releases, but I'm not super impressed. Once the beta, RC and final come out, I could see that changing though. Probably won't be enough to switch me from Chrome, but it's nice to see Mozilla making some much needed speed improvements.

it looks gorgeous and sites looks brighter, icons looks much better on big screens..kool
but full screen mode is still screwed up and there are very weird pop ups that does not want to go way...i will use it for sometime anyway.

Ive just loaded this on to a XP PC and it seem to be working well. In fact, completely the opposite to my W7 PC.
I'll stick with it for XP for now.

Yeah, yours is majorly messed up. Can't even begin to imagine how that happened.

I've given up on it. As i posted above it seems to want to always be on top. I tried turning the Tabs on top off but it still wants to be on top, although its random.
Turning tabs on top off worked fine for me ... hmmm..

I guess I'll wait for the official beta 1 before I download it.

I'm using the 4.0b2pre, so far pretty fast except for addon compatibility.

That works for me as well but its not what i wanted. All that seems to do is put the tabs above the navigation bar.

Actually i tried this version again on my W7 PC and its behaving itself now.....so far.

Scroll to the bottom - its a .zip :P!

By Mozilla's own admission, the Firefox 4 Beta isn't quite ready yet, but you can snag a copy all the same from Mozilla's directory of nightly builds. No release notes accompany the early beta build, and that's probably because there aren't a whole lot of changes from the latest Alpha release of Firefox 3.7.

Codenamed "Minefield," the Firefox Beta is reportedly a hair more stable than 3.7, but there are some caveats. Direct 2D hardware acceleration comes disabled by default, and Mozilla's developers are still tweaking JavaScript performance, which runs slower than most of the competition.
