Firefox 4 hits the web early

Firefox 4
Although Mozilla said in a blog post on Friday they had only updated the release candidate with some “minor security fixes and updates to several locations”, it seems the final build of Firefox 4 has hit the web earlier than expected.

Supersite for Windows’ Paul Thurrott links to a Mozilla page that is apparently hosting the final build of the long-delayed Firefox 4 browser. Earlier reports showed no sign of problems with the first release candidate and a desire to get the final build out on March 22nd.
