Mike Beltzner said that the primary goals for Firefox 4:

  • Fast: making Firefox super-duper fast
  • Powerful: enabling new open, standard Web technologies (HTML5 and beyond!),
  • Empowering: putting users in full control of their browser, data, and Web experience.

Some new feature of Firefox 4:

  1. Less icon or minimal browser interface like on Google Chrome web browser.
  2. Fast on Loading program. This is the major problem from Firefox 1.xx – 3.xx
  3. Better Dialog
  4. Change dialog from pop-up windows and drop down alerts to simple dialog bubbles that drop down from the URL bar.
  5. Update software in the background while Firefox running, just like in Google Chrome.

For your information as Mike Beltzner said, the concept can be changed before Firefox 4 is finalized.
