Alpha version: testing is performed by people involved in the developpment (coders themselves)

Beta version: testing is performed by people non involved in the developpment (closed beta: paid (or not) crew of testers with confidential papers etc, open beta: customers or willing help)

Indeed, going to beta traditionally suppose some sort of user friendliness.
Well, until crowdfunding projects at least…
