firefox自上個月小棗報導過 Firefox 6.0 Beta 後, 事隔不夠兩個月, Mozilla 的開發團隊緊接推出 Firefox 7.0 Beta, 亦代表 Firefox 6.0 為正式版本. 而最新的 7.0 Beta 版除了改善安全問題外, 似乎今次有針對 Windows 版本既優化工作. 不過在簡短既更新清單中, 小棗發現其中一項為改善程式運作穩定性既問題. 其實無論那個版本, 改善程式既穩定性一向是必然要做的事情. 但不夠兩個月便再次推出新一版 Beta, 其中一項是改善程式穩定性, 令小棗認為 Mozilla 的開發團隊更應利用快速既開發週期把時間留給測試程式穩定性及安全性. 不但改善 firefox 既設計而且使用者有充足時間適應, 版本更新太快對使用者亦會產生混淆及信心問題.

The latest version of Firefox Beta has the following changes:

  • Drastically improved memory use
  • Added a new rendering backend to speed up Canvas operations on Windows systems
  • Bookmark and password changes now sync almost instantly when using Firefox Sync
  • Added support for text-overflow: ellipsis
  • Added support for the Web Timing specification
  • Added an opt-in system for users to send performance data back to Mozilla to improve future versions of Firefox. This can be enabled by installing an add-on
  • Fixed several stability issues
