Download Firefox 4.0 Release Candidate

Mozilla has released the first release candidate of Firefox version 4.0. The new build comes less than two weeks after the Beta 12 release. There’s no major changes here: the company is just working on “general stability, performance, and compatibility improvements.”

Here’s the official announcement:

Mozilla Firefox 4 for Windows, Mac and Linux has exited the beta cycle and is now available as a release candidate in more than 70 languages. The millions of users testing Firefox 4 will be automatically updated to this version and will join our Mozilla QA team in validating the new features, enhanced performance and stability and HTML5 capabilities in Firefox 4. Testers are encouraged to check out the Web O’ Wonder in order to see the future of the Web with cutting edge demos that showcase the incredible online experiences developers can now create and users can experience. Developers can submit their own demos to the Mozilla Developer Network Demo Studio.

The Firefox 4.0 RC is available in 79 languages for Windows, Mac OS and Linux, and it brings various stability, performance, and compatibility improvements over the Beta 12. Other than that, you know what to expect – a new look, Firefox Sync, the JägerMonkey JavaScript engine, WegGL and WebM support, a reworked homepage design, a fresh Addons Manager and more.
