FireFox 4 Released!

The anticipated release of FireFox 4 has been out for only a day and has been making a big splash in the browser wars.  To the point, here are some new features found in FireFox 4:
App Tabs
Take sites you always keep open—like Web mail—off your tab bar and give them a permanent home in your browser.
Switch-to-Tab
As you’re opening a new tab or typing in the Awesome Bar, Firefox will check to see if you already have that site open. If you do, you’ll be directed to the existing tab so you don’t open a duplicate.

Organize your Tabs with Panorama
Too many tabs? Reclaim your browser from tab clutter! Panorama lets you drag and drop your tabs into manageable groups that you can organize, name and arrange in a fun and visual way. To get started with Panorama, simply select the Tab Groups icon when you customize your Navigation Toolbar or right click any tab to Move to Group.

Reopen Closed Tabs and Windows
If you accidentally close a tab or window, you can reopen it in one click. Just view Recently Closed Tabs or Recently Closed Windows in the History menu and select the tab or window you’d like to reopen.

Smooth Scrolling
Like to have all 20 of your favorite pages open at once? An elegant new feature lets you scroll through tabs easily to see them all and access the one you want quickly.
