Web 2.0, SOA, and Web Services: Mozilla Firefox 4 Boasts Performance and Usability Enhancements

By Jason Brooks  |  Posted 2011-03-24 Email Print this article Print
As a speedy, modern, cross-platform Web browser, Firefox 4 is well worth evaluating for any organization, particularly those with a heterogeneous mix of client operating systems. On this multiplatform front, however, organizations should also keep an eye on Google's Chrome, which tends to match Firefox in features and performance, and offers Group Policy-based management support that Firefox 4 lacks. For those already running earlier versions of Firefox, version 4 will be well worth the upgrade—provided that any add-ons on which users rely are compatible with the new version. For a look at Firefox 4 in action, check out the slide gallery below, and make sure to read eWEEK Labs' full review.
