Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9 recently became available for download and many are wondering when its competing counterpart, Mozilla's Firefox 4, will finally launch.
Well, the answer is out: March 22 should be the magic date.
The Register reports that it has received confirmation that "the Release Candidate build of Firefox 4 that Mozilla pushed out last week is likely to be the final test version of the browser."
This means that unless disastrous bugs have slipped into that version, we'll see a public release on March 22.
The final decision regarding the public release of Firefox 4 will be made on Wednesday, March 16th, but as developers are optimistic and there are currently no known issues with the browser, Mozilla is likely to stick with the March 22 release date.
