Firefox 4.0.1

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Firefox 4.0 was officially released on 22nd March 2011.

Like Internet Explorer 9, there has been a lot of visual updates.

Version 4.0.1 was released on the 28th April 2011 which fixes some stability and security bugs.  The cautious out there might now consider updating to Mozilla's latest internet browsing offering.

Firefox 4 is supported by Firebug 1.7, so all is well from a developer perspective.
