1 Mozilla Nightly and Aurora on Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:49 am
Just like Google Chrome, Mozilla have come out with a public development cycle for their future browsers.
What is Mozilla Aurora?
I like to describe it as the Alpha of Firefox. You can see new features that will be apart of the future release. There is a new update every 6 weeks. Just like any alpha or beta, it will be unstable.
But how about Mozilla Nightly?
It's the alpha of the release of Firefox in two release's time.
So, at the moment, we have a stable release of Firefox 4. Aurora is the alpha of Firefox 5. Nightly is the alpha of Firefox 6.
At first look, both look the same as Firefox 4.
So I ran Spectrum on both of the browsers
Both ran smoothly, however, once I opened a new tab in Nightly, it did lag quite a bit (Doesn't help that I am capped too)
You can see what is new in each of the future releases here.

All dreams are within reach...all you need is direction and focus - Perplex
Paper is dead without words, ink idle without a poem. All the world dead without stories, without love and disarming beauty.
I'd climb to the edge of a mountain for you. I'll go to the ends of the world to find you. We'll dance in the shadows until we reach a breakthrough. All we need is a breakthrough.
