I have written an article earlier about the continuous delays in the final release of the Firefox 4.0 and the growing frustration that it is bringing to the users. But at that time Mozilla had only revealed the fact that they plan to break this very slow release cycle they are experiencing with the Firefox, and plan to release the Firefox 5 by probably mid of this year (by some estimates). But now they have a much more detailed plan on their website that is updated with the latest bits and pieces about the future plans of Mozilla regarding Firefox. Most interesting bits are related to the changes that end users might expect in the upcoming versions of this market leading internet browser. Here are these changes as mentioned on the Mozilla website:
- Account Manager
- Simple Sharing UI
- UI Animation
- 64 Bit on Windows
- Web Applications
- OSX 10.7
- JS Optimizations
- e10s? deXBLification?
By looking at this product roadmap it seems interesting that finally we will be able to get the 64-bit version of the Firefox for Windows. And a Mac version is planned for the Firefox 6. Firefox 7 will probably bring separate process for the browser UI, web content and plugins (e10s).
However note that these are just proposals as mentioned on Mozilla website and NOT hard time frame. If interested you can read the whole roadmap with more details here.
