Final Beta for Firefox 4

Mozilla has released its 12th, and supposedly final beta for Firefox 4.

Beta 12 brings a few minor tweaks, including a boost in Flash performance, better compatibility for plugins using hardware acceleration, and bug fixes.

"This release delivers improved performance and responsiveness when watching videos on your favorite video websites," said a post on the Mozilla blog.

And, for anyone complaining Mozilla has taken too much time to perfect Firefox 4, the post noted: "The team has fixed more than 7,000 bugs since the first beta release."

The next stage for Firefox 4 is the release candidate. While Mozilla hasn't set a delivery date, it has suggested that will arrive in early March.

Mozilla also called on developers to get their plugins ready for the new browser. "We are working closely with the community of add-on developers to ensure their Firefox Add-ons are ready to customise the features, look and functionality of Firefox 4 Beta," it said.
