Firefox 8 Is Available Now For Download [News] 600 firefox logo shadow 300x300The official release of Firefox version 8 is actually on Tuesday, but as happens with most Firefox releases, you can actually download the final version a bit early. Fear not, this is not some crazy hack method or anything. You are downloading the files directly from Mozilla’s servers, so you can rest assured that it is safe.

To download the latest build of Firefox, simply click here. The files are stored on Mozilla’s FTP server, so as I said before, you don’t need to worry about any bad stuff hidden away in there. To download the file, click the folder that goes with your system. It is available on Mac, Windows and Linux.

The new version of Firefox doesn’t bring anything too groundbreaking, but it is good to see them sticking with their plan to release a major new version every six weeks. The first feature is that Firefox now handles third party software to protect you from security problems caused by less than reputable extensions.

In addition, Firefox now has the ability to search Twitter posts right from the browser’s search bar. This is a nice feature, and makes finding all that important up-to-the-minute stuff you can only find on Twitter a little bit easier.

The last change is bug fixes, which come standard with pretty much every new software version ever.
