Mozilla Finally Released Firefox Browser For Developers

Mozilla promised a dedicated browser for developers, now it has arrived. Though its not anything drastically different then we already have (with few add-ons), but it seems like a really good package.


Mozilla is celebrating their 10th anniversary of Firefox browser. Its kind of the best gift they offer to the community. Firefox Developer Edition is a developer focused browser, first of its kind. All browsers have some developer tools build-in (more or less), but a browser with simulator, all developer tool is just awesome for web and web-application developer.

Its kind of expected move by Mozilla, as they would want to push their own web-based application platform Firefox OS. But they have not left our all other platform as support for iOS and Android is already there. In my test few functionality is not stable yet on my mac, but its expected as its in a way, Alpha version. But surely it will get better with time.
