Firefox 12 Beta is now available

Following closely on the heels of Firefox 11 is, of course, Firefox 12 Beta. About the most interesting thing on the release notes would be the streamlined update process for Windows users. URL pasting in the download manager sounds like an interesting feature to finally land in Firefox.

Firefox 12 checking add-ons for compatibility

Ubuntu users can get in on the action by adding the Firefox Beta PPA and updating Firefox from there.

~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next
~$ sudo apt-get update
~$ sudo apt-get install firefox

Even Ubuntu 12.04 Beta testers can get the update if Ubuntu isn't "Beta" enough.

And if things get too shaky for your tastes safety's just a ppa-purge away.

~$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next

Happy testing!
