Mozilla Launches Firefox 4!
Mozilla is proud to release Mozilla Firefox 4, the newest version of the popular, free and open source Web browser. Firefox puts users in control of their Web experience, providing a streamlined user interface, fun new features, a boost in speed and support for modern Web technologies. Download Firefox 4 and let us know what you think.
Firefox 4 Release Candidate for Android and Maemo
Mozilla Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo is now available as a release candidate in more than 10 languages from the Android Market and for download on your Maemo device. Watch this video to learn more about everything that’s packed into this release.
Spread the word about Firefox 4
Sharing Firefox is easy. You can tell your friends about Firefox 4 by using our new Firefox 4 buttons, by tweeting with the #fx4 hashtag (you’ll also be added to our Twitter Party site) or posting a Firefox badge on Facebook.
Firefox 4 download stats
