Mozilla Firefox 3.6.7 Final
Firefox 3.6.7 Final | 8.18 MBMozilla Firefox - faster,
more secure, easier to use and sporting a new look, this latest Firefox
release sets a new standard for web browser innovation. Mozilla Firefox
project (formerly Firebird, which was formerly Phoenix) is a redesign of
Mozilla's browser component, written using the XUL user interface
language and designed to be cross-platform.
It is small, fast and
easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web browsers, such
as the tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up windows. Firefox
has the most ways to customize your online experience specifically for
the way you use the web. There are more than 6,000 Add-ons (little
extras that augment Firefox to meet your unique needs) just waiting out
there to help you do more, have more fun and be more creative online.
Firefox keeps your personal info personal and your online interests away
from the bad guys. Simply put, your security is our top priority.
3.6 (code-named Namoroka) is based upon Gecko 1.9.2. Please collect
information about changes that will impact developers here, and our
happy, helpful documentation gnomes will make sure that articles are

Namoroka will employ a
highly iterative, milestone based development process which will rely on
feedback from developers, testers and users to ensure that we are
properly investing time and resources. An initial exploration phase will
be used to investigate development cost and benefit, as well as to
create user interaction prototypes. This will be followed by an alpha
development phase for early user testing and feedback, and then a beta
phase for broader compatibility testing.
Namoroka will focus on
the following areas:
Observable improvements in
user-perceptible performance metrics such as startup, time to open a new
tab, and responsiveness when interacting with the user interface.
Common user tasks should feel faster and more responsive.
Simplify the development, discovery,
installation and management of browser customization and functional
extension. Where possible, provide a custom fit user experience based on
a user's interaction history. Act in the user's interests, leveraging
existing knowledge about their identity and browsing habits.
Allow users to organize their tabs, history,
downloaded files, and other resources according to the task they were
attempting to accomplish. Provide support for executing common web-based
tasks, mash-up style, without having to visit a website.
Blur the distinction between web and desktop
applications, providing web developers with the tools required to create
rich application experiences for a user who is connected or
disconnected from the Internet. Act as the intermediary between web
applications and the user's OS desktop.
