Mozilla: Firefox 4 delayed until ‘early 2011′

After missing the scheduled release date for the seventh beta, Mozilla has confirmed that version 4 of its open source Firefox web browser has been further delayed. Originally expected to arrive by the end of this year, the revised release schedule now says that the major update to the browser will shift to release candidate status sometime in “early 2011″.
