New York, Mar 17: Firefox maker Mozilla announced that the stable release of Firefox 4 will be available for download on Wednesday, Mar 22.

Mozilla decided to release the final version of Firefox 4 after receiving widely acceptance for its final candidate version Firefox 4 Beta 12, which was released on Feb 26.

"Firefox 4 RC1 has received a very warm welcome; it's time to make a decision to ship. As of now, there are no known issues that would stop us from shipping RC1 as final. At the conclusion of our regular 11:30AM triage session on Wednesday, 16 March, release drivers will decide whether to ship RC1 as Firefox 4," said Mozilla's Damon Sicore.

Various technology blogs reported that Mozilla is planning a new version of Firefox. Firefox 3.5 and 3.6 can upgrade to the new version by selecting 'Check for updates' from the Help menu and the Firefox 4 users will be automatically upgraded to newer version.

Mozilla plans to release the Firefox 4 just a week after the launch of Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. Also in Feb 2010, Google released update for their popular web browser Chrome.
