"Today, I presented an early product plan for Firefox 4 to the Mozilla community (live, over the web!) to share our vision for the next version of Firefox, and what projects are underway to realize it. Then I invited everyone to get involved by joining our engineering or product development efforts.

"The primary goals for Firefox 4 will be making a browser:

* Fast: making Firefox super-duper fast
* Powerful: enabling new open, standard Web technologies (HTML5 and beyond!),
* Empowering: putting users in full control of their browser, data, and Web experience.

"Usually software producers don't present these sorts of plans in public until they're finalized, but Mozilla is a little different. We work in the open, socializing our plans early and often to gather feedback and build excitement in our worldwide community. Not everyone could attend the presentation today, though, so I'm sharing the slides and video here as well."
