Fifth Firefox 3 Beta, Probably Not The Last One

Mozilla recently released the fifth Firefox 3 beta, and I sincerely doubt that it’ll be the last one. Brave souls can try it out, of course, but if you’re a Gmail user I advice against it:

GMail (new version) conversation labels appear on their own row in the message list, and names don’t show in the contacts manager

One of several known issues. There’s bound to be more bugs.

Still, people I’ve talked to who have been running the previous beta tells me it is actually quite stable and performs well. Hopefully we’ll see a release on schedule, which would be June.

    gmail contacts work for me (i’m using the portable version of beta 5). labels are on another line, it’s true. But BOY is it blazingly fast and not hogging memory. awesome.
