Don't look now, but here comes the newest version of Firefox. Today, Mozilla launched Firefox 4 Beta, which introduces a new look and a sizable pile of new features.
With Firefox 4 Beta, Mozilla introduces a brand new interface. It takes cues from Google Chrome and other browsers by placing the tabs on top by default (in Windows only; it'll come to Mac OS and Linux later on), and hiding the menubar (instead, a new Firefox button provides access to commonly used commands).
Like other new browsers, Firefox 4 Beta provides some crash protection features: If a browser plugin crashes, it'll just bring down the plugin instead of causing the entire browser to crash.
Firefox 4 Beta also features bolstered HTML5 support, adds full WebM video format.
