Mozilla Firefox 3 Beta 4 Released

Mozilla has released the 4th public beta version of Firefox 3. Here are a few of the updates packed into Firefox 3 beta 4:
  • Full page zoom - Up until now, Firefox would let you make text larger or smaller, but there was no way to increase or decrease the size of all the content on a web site (something you've been able to do with Opera for years). Now you can choose whether the zoom feature works for text or full pages.
  • New download manager - The new download manager shows active time remaining, and the status of downloads. You can also search your downloads and see the site where your downloaded files are from.
  • Improved OS integration - Firefox 3 beta 4 includes specific icons and themes for Windows Vista, OS X, and Linux (using the native GTK theme).
  • Improved memory usage
Firefox 3 beta 4 also includes a ton of other tweaks and bug fixes described in the release notes.

Looking good, does anyone know how to make this a standalone install? Last time it overwrote my firefox 2 install, and when I went back to firefox 2 it would never keep itself as default browser??

Improved memory usage. I wonder if that means they fixed the memory leaks.

Doubtful they fixed it (gotta find that one firefox extensions thread) but I hope its alot better than it was. This memory leak is horrendous.
