Mozilla will soon release Firefox 7 for its users. Earlier Mozilla used to release final builds after long time gaps but after Firefox 4 the company has started following a faster release cycle. This was done while keeping in mind the fast development of Google Chrome. Today they have released Firefox 7 after release of 6 beta versions. Currently it is available via their FTP site and soon they will make official announcement for it.
