Firefox 8 is now available for download

Mozilla Firefox 8
Mozilla is readying Firefox 8 for public release on November 8, and the final release is available for download on Mozilla's servers. The upcoming release is said to offer speed and performance improvements and is a part of Mozilla's rapid release plan for the Firefox browser.

This version comes six weeks after the release of Version 7 which followed Version 6 which was released a little over a month ago. Instead of focusing too much on the visual elements with this update, Firefox has been improving performance on their browser.

The new version offers some new features along with bug fixes and performance improvements. You can check out the full change-log below:
  • Add-ons installed by third party programs are now disabled by default 
  • Added a one-time add-on selection dialog to manage previously installed add-ons 
  • Added Twitter to the search bar 
  • Added a preference to load tabs on demand, improving start-up time when windows are restored 
  • Improved tab animations when moving, reordering, or detaching tabs 
  • Improved performance and memory handling 
  • Added CORS support for cross-domain textures in WebGL 
  • Added support for HTML5 context menus
