Firefox 4 just surpass 5 million downloads in 24 hours

    Dear folks, Firefox 4 just released 22/March/2011. For those who are still using firefox 3, please download the latest version. It's more fast,smoother, reliable than previous version. Unlike the previous version which it's more sluggish, memory hog and freeze (when i open more than 40 tabs in one browser). 



   Design: I like it's new design because it look more organized and look prettier than before. It's search bar become longer while the back and forward become smaller. The homepage button move to right side of navigation bar. By default, the tabs are above navigation bar and you can change it's position back to bottom of navigation bar just like Firefox 3. The "stop" "refresh" and "go" buttons have been combined into a single button, placed on the right side of the address bar.

New design look

Performance: It's faster than before and it's more smooth when switch to one tab to another tab. It's pass the acid3 test with flying color by scoring 97 out of 100. Firefox 4 using hardware acceleration allows the browser to tap into the computer's graphics processing unit, lifting the burden from the CPU. This allows pages to be rendered much faster and smoother than before. Besides that, it's also improves support for HTML5, CSS3, WebM, and WebGL.


It's perform even better than IE9 in Acid3 test.


For those who are interested in Firefox 4, please download the latest version of firefox at Mozilla website.

It's already reach more than 5 millions since it's release 24 hours ago. You can watch the download stat live at here
