Mozilla just released Aurora 10, the developer version of Firefox that just graduated from nightly status and will move to beta in about six weeks.
Another much anticipated feature is not mentioned either - a tool that would automatically import Chrome bookmarks and settings to Firefox. It appears as if this feature will also not surface until version 11 - and is even mentioned as "at risk" for version 11. These two features, as well as a the new home tab (also marked as "at risk" for version 11) are features that Firefox would have needed need yesterday rather than tomorrow to be able to be more competitive with Chrome. At least the silent update support is a must-hit target for version 10.
If you're feeling a little adventurous, but not too much, then check out the download for Firefox 9 beta here.
