Over the next couple of weeks, people like Paul Rouget and I are going to post a series of updates on a bunch of technologies that are part of our next release. That release, likely called Firefox 4, was underway before the release of Firefox 3.6 and already includes a bunch of new features, bug fixes and performance enhancements. (As an aside, I personally suspect that in a lot of ways Firefox 4 is likely to be a revolutionary release for both users and web developers, but more on that in later posts.)
Since we’re in the middle of the development cycle it’s important for web developers to know what’s coming and how they can test them. We’ll talk candidly about not only what’s coming, but why they are important. Very often in the current race to improve browsers context is lost on why something is or isn’t included, or why something is higher priority than something else. We’ll try and shine some context on a lot of these things as well as give good technical info about our roadmap to the next Firefox release.
So stay tuned, it’s going to be a fun ride.
