"Mozilla developers are out this week with the latest major update of the Firefox 4 Web browser. With the beta 4 version, Firefox 4 integrates two new key features into the open source browser, providing a new way to organize tabs and synchronize browser activities.

"The new tab features come by way of a Mozilla project known as Tab Candy, which enables users to group and organize sets of tabs together. In Firefox 4, Tab Candy has been rebranded as Firefox Panorama as it heads for public release.

"'Tab Candy' is the internal name for the development project, and we expect that it will continue to function as such," Mike Beltzner, Mozilla's director of Firefox, told InternetNews.com. "It's not really expressive for a consumer audience, though, so we selected a name that helps people understand that the feature gives them a panoramic view of their tabs.""
