Mozilla Firefox 4, which was supposed to ship out late last year, has now finally crossed all the delay hurdles and is headed for a final release on March 22, according to reports.
Pocket-Lint says that following the successful implementation of the Release Candidate, Mozilla have decided to let Firefox 4 into the wild. The new version of the popular browser brings a host of improvements to the table, one of the most important being the full implementation of GPU-assisted acceleration, a feature touted by the recently released Internet Explorer 9, too. Google’s Chrome browser only supports hardware acceleration in part, and IE9 is not Windows XP compatible. However, Firefox 4 will check both boxes, and will be available for Mac and Linux users as well.
