Firefox 8.0, which was officially released by Mozilla two weeks
ago, on November 8th, 2011.

“Mozilla Firefox 8.0 brings features such as integrated Twitter
search, tabs can now be loaded on demand (greatly improving
start-up time), an one-time add-on selection dialog to easily
manage your installed extensions, HTML5 context menus support,
better memory performance, insertAdjacentHTML support, better CSS
hyphen support, better WebSocket support and CORS support.”
