    Since it already got its holiday present, the new three-year search agreement with Google, Mozilla has went into a gift-giving mode and served up the first public beta build of the next Firefox release, version 10.0.

    According to the developers, Firefox 10 comes with Full Screen APIs (so web apps can run in full screen mode), with support for CSS3 3D-Transforms and WebGL Anti-Aliasing, and an added HTML5 treat, the < bdi > element for bi-directional text isolation.

    The beta also includes a forward button which stays hidden until you navigate back, an Inspect tool with content highlighting, IndexedDB APIs, and a few fixes. Just like its predecessors, the Firefox 10.0 beta is available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. The download links can be found here.
    WarEagleAU and v12dock say thanks.

    Is there a 64 bit version? They pushed the debut of 64 bit from 8 to 10. In fact I think they've been pushing it back since 4.

    I know there's been 64 bit builds for ages. That doesn't count. When are they going to cut the crap and make an official release.

    Yeah it sure would be nice . I mean 64 bit OS has been out for years now and they seem to be stuck on the 32 bit crap ! I would love to see them have a native 64 bit browser ! :banghead:

    Everything just needs to go native 64 bit and just do away with x86. Force people to upgrade.

    I just hope they add a directX 11.1 support
    And yeah, you might need 4GB of ram with the new technology of html5
    (i mean WebGL)

    Of course, I usually convert movies to .gif files with the lossless soundtrack in a different tab
