"Mozilla is out this week with the first public beta for its next-generation open source Firefox 4 Web browser. With the latest browser update, Mozilla is adding a host of features to drive performance and support HTML5, offline storage and add-ons, while also improving the user interface over the current Firefox 3.6 release.

"Though the new Firefox 4 Beta 1 release is available for Window, Linux and Mac users, the first beta does not offer the same user interface for all users.

"Microsoft Windows users will be getting a new user interface and Windows 7 and Vista users get the new Firefox button which consolidates browser menu functions. Linux and Mac users will get the new interface in a future beta release. The development release cycle is set to proceed with rapid iterations, so Linux and Mac users might not have to wait too long to be brought up to speed with their Windows peers."
