Why I am excited about Firefox 4 Beta - My review on Firefox 4 beta #firefox #firefox4 #beta

Well, you can view full list here  - http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/4.0b1/releasenotes/

But the things which I like are here

  • Full WebGL   (Wow - remember GWT-quake demo - )
  • Native support for the HD HTML5 WebM video format. (Wow again, Now I can un-install Chrome in near future because I only use chrome for watching html videos from youtube).
  • Websockets for a low complexity, low latency, bidirectional communications API -- Finally this websocket based chat will work - http://post.ly/lWzJ
  • It also support SVG animation - Just wow, finally, it is going to support svgeditplay demo - http://code.narendrasisodiya.com/eduvid/svgeditplay/editor/svg-editor-recorder.html My demo was waiting from a long time to kiss Mozilla.(previously it was supported only in Opera, So time to uninstall Opera too).

Well developer can go to - https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Firefox_4_for_developers
and those who want to download can visit http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/beta/

I am so happy as my project deals with websocket and SMIL animation. Both are now coming into this release.

Thanks you mozilla.
