Why I’ve Switched From Chrome to Firefox 4

Whitson Gordon   Lifehacke r   You've probably  heard a lot about Firefox 4's new interface, speed, and feature improvements , but  many of you have already left it for Chrome . Here's why Firefox's newest version is worth another look, even if you're a diehard Chrome user. I've never been much of a Firefox user myself. I switched between browsers a lot until Chrome came out, after which I used it almost exclusively.

Mozilla mirroring Chrome's fast, phased releases

It makes a lot of sense...Firefox is a good browser.... eep Tech - CNET News : "A faster, regular release schedule isn't the only idea Mozilla is adopting from Google's browser. The organization also is embracing a plan to give Firefox a similar spectrum of test and stable versions to try to bring new features to market swiftly. The general idea is to issue new versions of Firefox with varying levels of maturity, with the more mature versions geared for larger audiences, according to a draft document published by Mozilla programmer Rob Sayre.
