Firefox 3.5 almost here

Fans of Firefox's beta builds can now download Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate 2, which Mozilla hopes will be the final test version of their browser update.

Fans of Firefox's beta builds can now download Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate 2 for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The latest build contains bug fixes although, according to Mozilla's Director of Firefox, Mike Beltzner, these were minor stability issues corrected after the release of the first release candidate.

Belzner also addressed some confusion among the 800,000 or so beta users about Firefox's beta-naming conventions. When the beta moves into release candidate mode, he said, it takes on the name of the final version because if no further problems are found the RC build will simply become the public version.

In an interview with CNET earlier this week, Beltzner said that he expects Firefox 3.5 to be released to the public before the end of June. Although that gives Mozilla a week and a half from today, releasing two release candidates in one week could indicate that the final version could come as early as the beginning of next week.
