Firefox 4, after what seems like an eternity has finally been released.  It has a cleaner look, tabs on top, and is packed with performance enhancements.  I’ve been using the last few betas and the RC releases, and have been satisfied with the updates.  It definitely feels more responsive than previous versions, although I’d say that Chrome and maybe even IE 9, covered here, are a bit faster in terms of load times.   If you’re a FF diehard, there’s no reason not to go upgrade right now, it’s a definite improvement.  If you’re entrenched as a Chrome or IE user, I don’t know if there is much to win you over.

Google releases stable version of Chrome 10 – TechSpot.  I have recently moved from my long favorite web browser Firefox to Chrome.  Originally, it was going to be a week long trial.  But quite frankly, after a day or so, it was obvious that Chrome had better performance than Firefox.

Google upped the browser war 2.0 again by releasing Chrome 10 today.

Some of the key highlights of today’s upgrade involve security & speed:

  • 23 Security Vulnerabilites fixed
  • Faster JavaScript engine
  • Better malware reporting
  • Sandboxing Adobe Flash on Windows (because someone has to)

As Firefox marches towards its long awaited 4 release, we will see if it can keep up with Google’s development pace. As Chrome uses WebKit, Safari should also benefit from Google’s code.
