Firefox 4 beta version 2 released with latest App Tabs

The previous Firefox beta has been updated with the latest beta version 2 and the Mozilla team has added some new functions and fixed issues of compatibilities with Windows & Mac OSX.

Some key features include:

  • Available in 24 languages!
  • Tabs are now on top (video below) by default on Windows and OSX – Linux will be changing when the theme has been modified to support the change.

  • You can turn any tab into an “App Tab” by right-clicking on it and selecting “Make into App Tab” from the context menu.
  • Web developers can animate content using CSS Transitions.
  • Responsiveness and scrolling improvements from the new retained layers layout system.
  • JavaScript speed improvements due to engine optimizations.
  • Changes to how XPCOM components are registered in order to help startup time and process separation.

Watch this wicked video and find out more about the “App Tabs” functions.
