Mozilla has decided and (sort of) confirmed the release date for the final build of Firefox 4 as March 22nd. This version of Firefox browser went through some steep time curve, lots of testing and bug fixes and a large number of beta versions before a final release candidate was released some days before.
On a post on official Mozilla developer planning group on Google Groups Damon Sicore from from Mozilla explained that there are no current known bugs in the release candidate of Firefox 4 and so even the release candidate can also be the final release.
So if everyone inside Mozilla agrees for this, which most of the people are, then the download will start on March 22nd.
But Firefox fans don’t get your hopes too high for now. A number of release candidate cycles could also happen if a bug is found before March 22nd. For each bug found and patched, a separate release candidate could also be released then.
So, if the final release comes out soon it would be ideal time for Firefox to get heads on with Chrome 10 and Internet Explorer 9 that have already been released. Excited? Yes even we are, to do a browser showdown of the new version of these browsers, that we will do very soon. Till then, keep hooked on.
