With the upcoming desktop browser release, Mozilla Foundation also plans to ship the Final version of Firefox 4 for Android in few weeks.
Furthermore, during an interview at the Mobile World Congress, Mozilla’s vice president of products, Jay Sullivan said that there will be about 150 mobile add-ons available during the launch.
Nokia N900 users shouldn’t be worried too as Firefox 4 Mobile will be available for devices running Maemo operating system as well.
Jay Sullivan has also commented on much anticipated Firefox 5 build, which according to him:
Will be a much quicker release cycle but it will have fewer features, but it will be more agile and more reactive to the issues that are facing the market.

Here comes the very first build of Opera 11.10 (codenamed Barracuda) by Opera Software.
Before you become too excited, please keep in mind that this is just a first glimpse of what’s yet to come and therefore, does not include a lot of new features.
According to just published post, the Core has been upgraded from version 2.7.62 to 2.8.99 (a very big step forward, according to Manuela Hutter) and now includes Web Open Font Format (WOFF) support.
Even though the Final version of Firefox 4 has not yet been released, Mozilla team is already working on a new UI functionality for the upcoming Firefox 5 (targeted this year) browser.
One of the few new features is tab coloring by favicon (which for some users might be a headache (if can’t be disabled)).
It looks like the development of Firefox 4 is doing well as Mozilla now plans to release the RC build of an open-source web browser later next week on February 25th.
However, don’t forget Beta 12 which should be landing shortly.
As for the Final version, it is targeted for the March release.
