A fast and easy way to install Firefox 4 in Ubuntu

Just open up a terminal, copy and paste the whole code

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

and hit Enter! That's it, your firefox will now be upgraded to version 4.

Explanation of the commands:

sudo = super user do: tells Ubuntu to run the following command with root privileges.

add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable = add the mozillateams stable firefox PPA to your sources.list

&& = Tells the Ubuntu to execute another command if the foregoing command was executed successfully

apt-get update = tells Ubuntu to update your sources.list

apt-get upgrade = tells Ubuntu to upgrade all installed applications

On Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit chrome is a much than Firefox 3.6. When you open 20 tabs at once in ff3.6 the whole system will lag, but no problem with chrome.
Now that I installed FF4 things are different again ;)
So imho FF4>Chrome>FF3.6 hat gesagt…
