Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicWith the first Firefox 3.6 alpha in the bag, what's the next logical step for Mozilla to take? Why, to roll out the first pre-alpha of version 3.7, of course.

The 3.7 interface hasn't yet started to look like the mockups we saw a little while ago. Glass support isn't built in and the UI elements are still the same as those in 3.5. I've only been using it for a few minutes, obviously, but it feels as stable as the 3.6 alpha so far. It's also pretty damn speedy and easy on ram.

The development process for Codename Namoroka is planned to be very short, with the final version of Firefox 3.6 available on the heels of Windows 7’s General Availability (October 22nd, 2009). This especially because Firefox 3.6 will feature a deeper level of integration with Windows 7 compared to the existing Firefox 3.5 release.
