Performance regressions lead Mozilla to delay Firefox 3 beta, change roadmap

As we have previously reported, the first official Firefox 3 beta release was tentatively scheduled for late July. The beta has now been pushed back due to performance regressions and the need for extra front-end development time, and the roadmap has been altered to reflect a new release plan. According to Mike Schroepfer, Mozilla's vice president of engineering, the developers intend to issue a new pre-beta milestone release every six weeks until the program achieves beta status...

It has some interesting quirks. Copy and paste don't work propperly, many keyboard shortcuts are iffy, sometimes it has some odd image rendering issues.

That said, it handles all CSS very, very nicely. It will be a good incremental improvement for the fox once its complete... just might take a while to get the silly bugs out.
