Firefox 4 Beta 3 adds multi-touch support.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2010/08/veHc4f.jpg[/newsimage]Using CSS3 and HTML 5, the Beta 3 release will allow users with a capable multi-touch display to move, zoom, and interact with content on the internet. This functionality is showcased quite nicely in a video posted over at YouTube.

In addition to multi-touch, the beta also adds additional language support and new JavaScript values which are purported to create a “faster and smoother graphics” experience.
While multi-touch is not a new concept, especially with many tablet and mobile phone devices on the market today, it is something that we’ve not yet experienced within an internet browser.
With this in mind, I wouldn’t expect the functionality to impress for some time. As web developers are able to harness and create new websites that take advantage of the multi-touch capability, however, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for web browsing.
If you have a computer running Windows 7 with a multi-touch display, you can download and test Firefox 4 Beta 3 now over at Mozilla.com.
