Just days after Mozilla released the Firefox 10, the next version of the browser is now available for download. The Firefox 11 Beta is now available for testers on Windows, Mac and Linux.

The new beta of Firefox comes with some considerable feature improvements that may make the users want to upgrade to it when it comes out.Mozilla is now following rapid release cycles, releasing versions of Firefox every fortnight. Firefox was one of the most used browsers on Earth, but just until Google’s Chrome came into the market. Firefox is now battling with Google Chrome to be the most used browser on Earth.

The Firefox 11 Beta has got an improved Sync system, with some of the much needed HTML5 and CSS3 improvements to the browser. Here’s the change log of Firefox 11:

  • [NEW] Firefox can now migrate your Bookmarks, History and Cookies from Google Chrome.
  • [NEW] With Sync Enabled, add-ons can now be synchronised across your computers.
  • [NEW] The CSS text-size-adjust property is now supported.
  • [HTML5] The outerHTML property is now supported on HTML elements.
  • [HTML5] View source syntax highlighting now uses the HTML5 parser.
  • [FIXED] Redesigned media controls for HTML5 video playback.
  • [FIXED] Firefox notifications may not work properly with Growl 1.3 or later.

From Firefox 10, Mozilla introduced new Developer Features to compete with Google Chrome.

Firefox 11 is also said to be having such cool features. I’m yet to explore it. And here are the download links:
