The latest beta of the upcoming Firefox 4 web browser has been uploaded to the official Mozilla FTP servers. Firefox 4 Beta 9 brings the inclusion of the IndexedDB web standard âfor the storage of significant amounts of structured data in the browser and for high performance searches on this data using indexes.â
Only a couple of days ago, Mozilla's senior director of platform engineering Damon Sicore wrote, "Team, we've worked tremendously hard on Firefox 4, and it's time to ship it. I'm seeing the same burst of excitement and activity that we've seen in the endgame of every release. We must press hard now."
