Firefox 7 out and ready for download

Just downloaded it today but Firefox 7 has been out for a couple of days now and claims it uses much less memory (50%) compared to FF4.

It was only last month that we saw an update to Firefox 6 and six weeks later, FF7 is already out. That’s fast.

I earlier said that at this pace, we might see FF8 by December. Now it looks like Mozilla wants to hit FF10 before end of the year.

LifeHacker posted some benchmark results between FF, IE, Opera and Chrome. In the memory test, FF and Opera got the top scores.

Overall scores showed Opera leading the pack, followed by Firefox:
Opera 11.51: 82%
Firefox 7: 73%
Internet Explorer 9: 47.5%
Chrome 14: 43%

Just go to www.firefox.com get the download.
