Mozilla posts near-final Firefox 11 build

updated 10:20 pm EDT, Mon March 12, 2012

Final release expected tomorrow

Mozilla has reportedly posted a near-final Firefox 11 build, which was initially misinterpreted as the final edition. The major update brings several new features, including add-on synchronization across multiple platforms, faster page loads using the SPDY protocol, and the ability to import bookmarks, history and cookies from Chrome.

The company suggests the build posted on Download Crew and several other sites is actually still undergoing testing, though it is said to be in the latest stages ahead of a formal release.

It remains unclear if the company will make any other changes, though the final build is expected tomorrow if no problems arise during the last-minute checks.

    Hopefully it IS the final one...

    All that constant updating and patching wrecks havoc with plugins...

    So, they're saying that...

    Firefox 5.1 is near completion?

    Gee, guess I'm the lucky one, I've never had my extensions blow up during any of the updates.

    But I guess you all like the Apple model. Release a new browser every year as part of your $30 OS upgrade. And no updates on the Windows side because you have to wait until the OS upgrade for the Mac is finished for it to be released.
