The first Beta of Firefox 4 is here, and you can download it now. In this video we quickly review a few of the initial UI changes that have already landed, including:
1) Our Feedback UI and how to control user interface tests
2) Switch to Tab
3) Tabs on Top (more details in an earlier video)
4) The Firefox Button (note that this is only the default UI for Windows 7 and Vista)
-This is a very early Beta, so a lot of features are not complete yet, and the interface is still rather unpolished
-Currently most of the initial UI changes have only landed for Windows. If you are on OS X or Linux, expect to see additional interface changes in future betas
-If you are on OS X and you’re finding our visual design of tabs on top to be broken, please note the previous two disclaimers :)
-If you have modified your bookmarks toolbar and it was hidden during the upgrade, this is actually a bug. The current plan is to only hide the bookmarks toolbar if the user has not previously modified it (or if they have a brand new profile).
Please use the comments below for any questions or feedback, or you can of course use your shiny new Feedback Button in the Firefox 4 Beta :)
We hope you enjoy this early Beta build!
