Firefox 4 was originally slated for November of 2010, but after a dozen betas, the 22nd of March may be the final release date. That is the new release date stated by Mozilla anyway.
The current release candidate was labeled as good enough to ship as the final product on Wednesday by Mozilla developers. This contrasts with what Mozilla has done in the past, namely ship multiple release candidates until finally determining the shipping code. Firefox 3.6, for example, had two release candidates issued by Mozilla before reaching its audience more than a year ago.
According to Johnathan Nightingale, director of Firefox development, this release candidate embodies what the development team deems to be a finished browser.

According to Mozilla, users will need to make sure that their graphics cards’ drivers are up to date if they wish to utilize hardware acceleration present in Firefox 4.
