Firefox is beginning to shape up to what is supposed to be Firefox 4, with each beta bringing us a taste of the awesome features that we will get in the Final release. Firefox beta 3 is has fewer immediately visible features, most of the new work is in the back-end.

The other important change is for those lucky few who have multi-touch enabled computers. Firefox 4 beta 3 now supports multi-touch for those computers running Windows 7.
