Mozilla finalized the final bits of Firefox 4.0 browser. Mozilla has yet to announce the launch of the next generation of its open source browser.

However, users don't need to wait for the official announcement of the browser, as the Firefox 4.0 is now live on Mozilla's FTP servers.

Delayed a few months due mainly to the volume of bugs Mozilla needed to deal with, Firefox 4.0 went through no less than 12 Beta development milestones, and two Release Candidate Builds, the last of which just this past weekend.

Firefox 4.0 brings to the table a variety of new features and enhancements compared to the previous version of the open source browser. With Firefox 4.0, Mozilla overhauled the graphical user interface dramatically, taking the new UI in a new direction in terms of design when compared to version 3.6 and earlier.

Of course, there are more improvements, including hardware acceleration, crash protection, privacy enhancements, multi-touch support, etc. Version 4.0 also delivers a massive improvement in terms of performance, with the usual focus on JavaScript.

Firefox 4.0 is also one of the most compliant browsers out there, designed by default to play nice with HTML5, CSS3, SVG, WebM, and others.

In addition, Firefox 4.0 makes it easier for users to synchronize content over various devices, to manage add-on and Tabs.
