Firefox Aurora is the equivalent of Chromeís cutting-edge Dev, which means itís definitely not for the average user. Itís effectively an alpha build of the next version of Firefox Ė more stable than the nightly builds produced for developers, but still a long way off the relative stability of beta versions, never mind a final release. Make sure your computer is backed up before installing this, but once done, you can install it and get an early glimpse into the future of the Firefox browser.
Itís worth noting that Aurora can be installed alongside the stable release of Firefox and run separately, so you can test drive in conjunction with a final release of Firefox rather than in place of it (as is the case with Chrome). However, there will be an add-ons compatibility check each time you switch versions, so bear this in mind.
According to the Mozilla blog, Aurora will be synchronised with the Nightly Build server every 5-6 weeks, which means itís significantly less stable at the start of this period than at the end when its changes migrate into the Beta channel.
