Firefox 4.0 beta 1 is out!

Mozilla Firefox guys have redefined the release plan a bit. Firefox 3.7 is to be merged with 3.6 line as the features are almost complete and focus on out-of-process plugins. So, now we have Firefox 4.0 line with other changes. The focus is on speed.
I’m trying out the IE9 tests (link) with Direct2D enabled (link), Google V8 Benchmark Suite (link) and checking out the new features of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript at HTMLRocks presentation (link).
See Firefox presentation here or get the 4.0 beta 1 candidates from here.

Edit: Wow, the startup is faster than current Dev version of Chrome. Even without Firefox Preloader! This is definitely my new default web browser and HTML viewer.
