Moving up from Firefox 3.6? There's a long list of changes that have been made since then: Direct2D hardware acceleration for Windows 7 users, plug-in crash protection, support for HSTS security protocol, Firefox Sync, improved tab management, and a new HTML5 parser, to name a few.
Firefox 4.0 isn't expected to be released in final form until early 2011. In the meantime, beta 7 provides a good opportunity to see where Mozilla is taking its prized possession.
