Download Firefox 4.0 Release Candidate (RC) Early Builds

firefoxlogonewMozilla has just released the latest beta of Firefox 4, which, the corporation says, will be the last beta build of the browser. Firefox 4 beta 12 boasts of increased performance while viewing Flash content, improved plugin compatibility with hardware acceleration enabled, and general stability, performance, and compatibility improvements.

The only visual change in this build is that hover-over links now display URL at the bottom of the window rather than inside the location bar as was in the previous beta.

The new beta build for Windows, Mac, and Linux can be downloaded from Mozilla’s community mirrors.

Meanwhile, an early build of Firefox 4.0 RC is live on the company’s FTP servers. The build has been labeled as Firefox 4.0 Beta 13, although Mozilla confirms that the twelfth beta will be the last beta build before the Release Candidate ships.

Christian Legnitto, Firefox release manager at Mozilla, explains that the versioning is merely a product of automation.

“It may be confusing that nightly builds after beta 12 identify themselves as version 4.0b13pre. The versioning is merely a product of automation. This DOES NOT mean we are having a beta 13,” Legnitto said.

Interested users can now test drive both Firefox 4.0 beta 12 and pre-RC at the same time. With Mozilla announcing a very tight release schedule for upcoming versions of Firefox, fans and early adopters are sure to have their hands full the current year.

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
