Earlier, Mozilla used to release new Firefox builds with a big time difference but lately they’re in a rush to push Firefox to a higher build version. Seems they are trying hard to cope up with the build numbers of Google Chrome and IE. After releasing 6 beta versions of Firefox 7, the Final version of Firefox 7 is now available for download via their FTP site. Official announcement will go soon, get it for Windows, Linux and Mac!
