Firefox 4 out of beta, first release candidate available

Firefox 4 RC 1The first release candidate for Firefox 4 is now available for download. After 12 betas and over 7,000 bug fixes Mozilla has finally brought their long-delayed browser to RC status, after over 8 months of beta releases.

There are no new features in this latest build, mainly “general stability, performance, and compatibility improvements”. And there’s no telling yet whether or not Mozilla will be releasing more than one RC. Hopefully all goes well with this release and the finished product will follow shortly after.

If you want to get the full low-down you can find it in Mozilla’s release notes.
