Instead, the release is focused solely on bug fixes and performance issues. Previous betas have been bugger than past betas for some users - Mozilla is obviously trying to correct this.

 

Mozilla aimed high with Firefox 4 - GPU-based rendering was a big step and it has been their toughest one yet. If Mozilla can iron out the bugs and get performance up, it might see a winner on it's hands once again.
