Firefox 4 B4 Now Online, Brings Tab 'Panorama'

It was supposed to be out a little earlier, but the fourth beta of Firefox 4.0 is now out and it brings with it a couple new features that Mozilla hopes to set it apart from the other browsers on the market right now.

One feature already discussed before is Tab Candy, which is now renamed Firefox Panorama. For those of us with more tabs open at a time than can fit on the width of our browser windows (I currently have over 150 tabs open, though it's due time to clean up), a zoomed-out 'panoramic' view of all tabs can be far easier to manage and group than just the regular line up of tabs.

Check out the video below for more:

Another feature weaved into the new Firefox 4 beta is Sync, which is very handy for accessing bookmarks, history, Awesome Bar, passwords, form-fill data and open tabs accessible across multiple computers and mobile devices.

  • 150 tabs is a bit ridiculous...that can't be productive.

  • Looks like Firefox might be getting 2nd chance from me. I'm loving Chrome (although I see many others are not), but there are things I miss about Firefox. And...... download.
