Just installed the long awaited Firefox 4. Right now I am writing this post from FF4. I am a huge fan of FF for the last few years (from FF2 more precisely). With new look-n-feel and cool features, FF4 will sure rock your browsing experience.
To download Firefox go here. Ubuntu users can install FF4 via PPA. It has not been added to the Ubuntu official repository (yet), but why keep your Ubuntu awaiting! You can install FF4 in Lucid and Maverick following the process below:
- Go to Applications > Ubuntu Software Center from the top panel.
- Head to Edit > Software Sources and click the ‘Other Software’ tab.
- Press ‘Add’ button and then paste the following line into the relevant field to add the PPA. [code]ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable[/code]
- After adding the PPA you will be prompted to update your sources.
- Once the update is done you can head to System > Administration > Update Manager to perform an upgrade.
- Thus FF4 will be installed in the system.
You can do the above processes via the Terminal easily and quickly. For this:
- From the top panel go to Applications > Terminal.
- In the terminal just enter the following command and give your password when asked. This will add the PPA to your Ubuntu repository. [code]sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable[/code]
- Now run the following command in the terminal
[code]sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade[/code]
So your Ubuntu is all set with FireFoxFour! To see what’s new in Firefox 4, check out the following video:
And there is a Firefox4 Twitter party going on HERE. You can join there and celebrate the party with other Firefox users! Happy FFFing!!
