Firefox 4 Final Candidate Is Available. - March 9, 2011, 09:21 AM

I'm running it. More polished than 3.x. Better speed. Handles HTML 5 and Flash easier with less taxation on memory.
Some other tweaks here and there I haven't fully used yet.

Download link: Index of /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/4.0rc1-candidates/build1/win32/en-US

If you’re a keen supporter of Firefox compared to the likes of Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, you’ll be pleased to hear that Mozilla has just put the RC version of Firefox 4 on their website which is available to download now.The Release Candidate is the final test version of the software, which is intended for developers to demo the new build in case any bugs are found before the next version, which generally turns out to be the full version providing any major problems are not present.
Even if you’re not a developer you can still download this software if you’re interested in getting a personal preview of what’s in store for version 4.0. Confirmed new features include a resigned Chrome-like UI, HTML 5 support and updated support of certain Javascript engines, according to ZDnet.
If you’d like to try out Firefox 4.0 RC, you can download the PC version here. For Mac users, you’ll need to visit this link. Download it now and let us know your thoughts on it. If you discover any problems whilst installing or using the new version, get it touch with us below.

Used to use Firefox all the time... Switched to Chrome and haven't looked back (except for using Firebug to do web development debugging). Chrome is so much faster in every respect. I leave it open without quitting it for weeks and its just as snappy. Leave Firefox open for a week without quitting it and its so sluggishly slow. You almost have to quit it and restart it daily.

With Rob on this one....I have both but really only use Chrome....I wish Chrome had a better save tab technique like firefox but I got the session manager addon...I just have to remember to hit it and save the session.

Also I do miss downloadhelper that FF had....could save any movie I saw online....

FF used to be like that through all the 3.x releases until they got to 3.6.X, that's when they learned how to better manage the resource hogging issue it had.

In so much as snappiness, once you tweak FF it's damn fast. How To Double The Speed of Firefox Browser

FF can't be beat for the number of tweaks. I'm still learning how to write custom scripts in the GreaseMonkey application for it to really make it customized.

I haven't used Chrome in quite some time. It was a little rough, had trouble handling some sites, and wouldn't work right on some chat boards the last time I used it.

I've been using FF4 beta for a while and its still slow as molasses compared to Chrome.

The only real redeeming quality of Firefox these days is Firebug, and if you don't have to dig into the DOM of a web page or do javascript debugging, you won't need it.

I've never used Firebug, but I use Chrome's version and it does the trick for me. I agree with others. I started using Chrome and never looked back. My only gripe right now has been ugh.......Flash. I have a lot of flash issues in Chrome, but I suspect that is because I am on a Mac and not a PC.

Same here... but it sounds like it's gotten better... maybe I'll give it another shot.

use Chrome too, +1 on the flash issue and I use a PC.

Also experience issues with radio buttons not rendering. Very fucking annoying.

I used to be a FF user. I decided to test drive chrome for a week and never looked back. It seems faster .I play poker on FB all the time and when it loaded on ff the browser would go into not responding for about 1minute before it loaded. also it would freeze during a game witch would suck when in a tournament. With Chrome it loads right up no freezing. Thats the main diff besides slightly faster. I use voice and gmail all the time and like the fact that i can use the address bar as a search bar as well.
