Mozilla had just released beta 4 of Firefox 3 a few weeks ago, and have already announced they feel its ready to go. While Firefox will remain as beta 4, the team behind the browser feel its now safe enough for just about everyone to begin using.

“In many ways it (Firefox 3) is much more stable than anything else out there,” Mozilla Corp Vice President of Engineering Mike Schroepfer said in an interview.

Even with the approval from the Firefox team, the download website still has the “It is intended for testing purposes only” statement, but seriously does it not seem like everything is either currently in beta or remained in beta well after it had been adopted by the public. The full and final version of Firefox 3 is expected to be released before the end of June.

    Well, at least they're planning on coming out of beta. Look at gmail! About 3-4 years and it's STILL in beta. I serious don't know why everyone is so gaga over google.
