Firefox 4 struggling to reach finishing line

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla may release an eighth beta of Firefox 4 before heading to Release Candidate, as the open-source developer struggles to get the new browser out of the door.

Mozilla released the first beta of Firefox 4 in early July, but has since added a flurry of new features - such as App Tabs and Panorama - in successive betas, increasing the complexity of the release.

The Mozilla release schedule has a seventh beta pencilled in for the second half of this month, although there's speculation that an eighth beta might be issued before a release candidate, which isn't due until the second half of October.

In the meantime, Mozilla has a mountainous list of bugs to work through.
