    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.
