Mozilla Firefox full integration into AppMenu extension has just landed in Natty Narwhal (no PPA required)

In the last weeks we tested the Firefox integration in the Global Menu/AppMenu from its own PPA and the overall Appmenu integration was pleasant with very few bugs.
Just now the Unity Appmenu extension for Mozilla Firefox has landed in Natty Narwhal, making the browsing experience more compact, fixing some bugs and strengthing the Appmenu.
One interesting thing that worth mentioning is that this Unity extension is developed on its own separate package, independent of Firefox (bug targeting and updates will be more efficient and faster).

Opera 11 beta, Firefox 4 beta7, Chrome 8, Chromium 8 @acid3test and @fishIEtank

1, 2, 3 and start! Just kidding!
A few days ago Opera 11 beta has been released, Mozilla Firefox has reached version 4 beta 7, Google Chrome (made possible by Chromium) version 8 and Chromium (open source software) version 8.
We've ran some tests (acid3 test and FishIEtank from Microsoft).
Keep in mind that we used the default Adobe Flash Player (not 10.2 beta version with reduced cpu usage, etc).
