Waiting for Firefox 8? It's already here

The latest version of Mozilla's popular browser is ready and waiting ahead of schedule with several key new features.

By Katherine Noyes, PC World |  Software, browsers, Firefox

Support for HTML5 context menus and Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) support for cross-domain textures in WebGL are among the extra muscle added to Firefox 8, as are improved WebSocket support and improved CSS hyphen support for many languages, according to the release notes for the beta version.

Bottom line? Though Firefox's announced memory diet won't yet have taken effect in time for this new release, version 8 still promises to bring several compelling new capabilities to the table. You can wait until tomorrow for the automatic upgrade, or you can give yourself an extra day by downloading it yourself today.
