Firefox 4 second beta hits minor delay

All good things comes to those who bait?

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Mozilla has delayed the second beta release of Firefox 4 by about a week.

The open source browser maker had tentatively planned to sling out Firefox 4 beta 2 late last week. However, Mozilla has now pushed that release back to Thursday, 29 July.

“Hi! We're glad you're interested in Firefox 4 Beta 2 - it's not quite ready yet. Our candidate builds (FTP links below) are still going through quality assurance tests,” reads a note on Mozilla's releases wiki.

A third beta is still on track for 6 August, according to the outfit's schedule.

Earlier this month the first beta of the next iteration of Firefox arrived. Mozilla said it had built so-called “crash protection” into the pre-release version of the surfing tool. It has been working hard to address the browser's stability, which some users have complained loudly about.

Underlying code in that beta included an HTML5 parser, called WebSockets, that allows developers to create yet more real-time integration for the Web2.0 wasteland, as well as IndexedDB for web apps to use structured storage. ®
