One year on since the first Alpha of Firefox 4 was made available for testing the worlds second most popular browser may finally have the finish line in sight.

In a post to the Mozilla Development Planning team, Mozilla developer Damon Sicore calls on the Firefox 4 development team to"…finish [the] last few bugs" in order to "…finish [the] RC by Feb 25th."

The release date depends on a ‘drive’ to fix a handful of ‘blocker bugs’ proving successful. In the intervening time a 12th beta of Firefox will be released for testing.

Earlier this month Mozilla announced intentions to release versions 5, 6 and 7 of  the flagship browser this year.
