Mozilla Firefox 3.5 Delayed Until June

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

Mozilla Firefox 3.1 was supposed to be released in early 2009, supposedly January, but it looks like things are being delayed over at the Mozilla Camp. Firefox 3.1 has been renamed to Firefox 3.5 to signify many changes and all of the mumbo jumbo. I'm excited for Firefox 3.5, but I doubt I will even use it, thanks to Google Chrome. Anyways, Mozilla just released Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 last week and it's fairly fast. I've used it a couple of times, but I feel that it's still lagging behind the likes of Google Chrome 2.0. Well, Mozilla evangelist, Chris Blizzard, has just said that after a couple more release candidates for Firefox 3.5 it is expected to be released in "two to three months." That means we'll see Firefox 3.5 in either May or June, which makes the total delay a good 6 months. With Opera touching up on their Alpha 10 version, Apple touching up on the new Safari 4, with Google modifying Chrome to finally get add-on integration, and with Internet Explorer slipping off the table it leaves one to wonder if Firefox will give up some of its share on the browser market. I don't think it will happen, but only time will tell.
