Mozilla Firefox is a browser that needs no introduction as these days, it's become the premiere choice web browser for many web surfers around the world. Initially released way back in November 9, 2004, Mozilla Firefox gained popularity quickly over main competitor Internet Explorer (IE) and other competitors like Opera and Netscape.
Today we will review the latest version of Mozilla Firefox - the version 4.0 alpha and compare it to it predecessor Firefox 3.xx.
The version 4.0 alpha has been code-named Minefield. Now let's have a look at the interface of Mozilla 3.xx and compare it with the 4.0 version.
Now let's have a look at what Minefield looks like:
Firefox Minefield Logo
At first, there seems to be no difference in the interface. However, we can notice that the home button has been relocated. The "most visited" bookmark button has been placed into "Smart Bookmarks". The options and other interface seem to be same as Firefox 3.
Mozilla's Page For Minefield is here, but there seems no real download link for this built but fortunately I've got a copy and there's a Rapidshare link.
Since this is an alpha version, I presume that Mozilla Developers have only started to work on this version and hopefully will add plenty of new features in this release. If you want to test out Minefield, you can download it from Rapidshare here: Mozilla Firefox 4.0 Pre Alpha Download.
