Enterprise Applications: Mozilla Firefox 4 Browser Offers Better Performance, HTML5 Support
Mozilla Firefox Director Mike Beltzner has pulled back the curtain on Firefox 4, the next version of the popular open-source Web browser, which currently commands one-quarter of the market. The design of Firefox 4 seems to have three key goals: Mozilla wants it to be faster than any other browser on the market and able to handle emerging Web technologies such as HTML5. And Mozilla apparently has the additional goal of staving off the growing threat that is Google's Chrome browser, which has grabbed over 6.7 percent of the market in a short period of time. However,Beltzner cautioned that Mozilla's plans regarding Firefox 4 are subject to change, so don't take his presentation, of which excerpts are shown here, as fact.
