    Note1: This beta will replace your old firefox.
    Just a note now that I see how the new rapid release for Firefox is actually working in practice...

    My PPA's will be updated to the latest Beta's as they come out.
    At the end of the cycle they will be updated to the latest release firefox.

    So if you add a PPA from the list above, you will always have the latest FF6, FF7 etc., as soon as they are available.

    I think that the Beta's, at least for me, represent the best reward (in running the latest Firefox) for the least risk (very stable and polished).

    Less need for these as you have very regular releases of the Beta's.

    But yes, I note it's final, but unofficial.
    Hi I found this which explains what to expect next:

    Merge and Release Dates

    These are planned branch migration dates based on the current Development Specifics draft. They may change if the process changes. Note: Code is not always released to users on the same day as the branch migration. The release to users may be a few days later, to allow for manual testing and sign-off.

    • 2011-06-21: Firefox 5 -> mozilla-release
    • 2011-07-05: Firefox 7 -> mozilla-aurora; Firefox 6 -> mozilla-beta
    • 2011-08-16: Firefox 8 -> mozilla-aurora; Firefox 7 -> mozilla-beta; Firefox 6 -> mozilla-release
    • 2011-09-27: Firefox 9 -> mozilla-aurora; Firefox 8 -> mozilla-beta; Firefox 7 -> mozilla-release

    Re: Install The Newest Firefox ppa with command "add-apt-repository" (9.10 & above)

    This sounds really interesting:

    From: http://www.conceivablytech.com/9058/...s-omnibox-sync

    Mozilla’s Firefox team appears to have adjusted its pace to the new rapid release cycle and is working on a wave of new features that should make the browser race much more interesting again. Among the most interesting features are the previously covered Electrolysis as well as WebAPI and an integration of Google’s SPDY protocol. Google isn’t standing still either and is evolving the Chrome interface and recently added Omnibox syncing.
    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPDY

    SPDY (pronounced "speedy") is a TCP-based application-level protocol for transporting web content. It is proposed by Google and is being developed as one of their Chromium open-source projects. The SPDY white paper states that it is intended to "augment," rather than replace, HTTP.

    The name "SPDY" is not an acronym. It comes from the word "SPeeDY" and represents speed through compression, which is one of the project's key goals.

    The goal of SPDY is to reduce web page load time. This is achieved by prioritizing and multiplexing the transfer of several files so that only one connection per client is required. All transmissions are TLS encrypted and gzip compressed by design (in contrast to HTTP, where the headers are not compressed). Moreover, servers may hint or even push content instead of awaiting individual requests for each resource of a web page.
