By - Source: Lifehacker | B 51 comments

Get it before the masses!

Firefox 4.0 may not be facing an official release until tomorrow, but the folks at Mozilla have put it in the can and it's ready for the mass market.

The download will be funneling through the official channels tomorrow as the mirrors get set up, but the final file is sitting on Mozilla's FTP right this moment. For early adopters who love to have new stuff before everyone else, you can grab it from the links below:

Firefox for Windows

Firefox for Mac

Firefox for Linux

Firefox for Linux 64-bit

    Check your license, does it also say you're legally blind?

    Anyhoo, love FF 4. Some less important addons are broken yeah, but I've been using since the early betas and have seen more and more compatibility updates as the release date approached.

    I just checked the MD5 of this download, it's identical to Firefox 4 rc2.

    So basically it is less compatible but there are more updates to make you feel like they are at least trying. Wow

    ya... they really need to get rid of the bright orange box... It's either that or I have my menu bar taking too much space, I just can't win with FF.

    I have a problem with Chrome taking forever to load this site....and IE9 not allowing me to post....Sadly, Comodo Dragon, which is just Chrome with improved security, works just fine...
