Mozilla drops Firefox 3.7 (soon to be FF4?) alpha 1

Pre-alpha builds of Firefox 3.7 have been available for quite some time in the Mozilla nightlies, but today marks the arrival of the first official 3.7 alpha.

Sure, 3.7 has been dropped from Mozilla's development schedule but that just means that the current Minefield browser will be re-numbered when it's ready for public consumption -- possibly as Firefox 4.0 later this year.

So what's new in the alpha? Apart from the Gecko 1.9.3 engine, support has been added for WebGL (disabled by default), SMIL animations in SVG, and CSS transitions (partial). Check the release notes for complete details, or download the Firefox 3.7 alpha (Windows, Mac, Linux) and take it for a spin.
