Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 released
According to Mike Shaver, Mozilla's vice president of engineering, a fourth beta will follow in approximately six weeks, which will take into account feedback from the third beta and test all of the improvements before a final release. The next version will become Firefox 3.5 in response to suggestions by developers to reflect the "increased scope" and due to the long release delays.
As this beta is pre-release software, Mozilla warns that users "may encounter compatibility problems with some websites and add-ons." Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 is available to download in 64 languages and more details can be found in the release notes. Users and developers who find any bugs are urged to report them on Bugzilla so that they can be addressed in the next release.
