Mozilla is runing an "Firefox 3.5 for 35 Days" campaign, where every day for 35 days they post about one new feature in Firefox 3.5.

The stuff they post about is mainly meant for developers, but there's still lots of interesting stuff for the rest of us too. :D

The 35 days site is best viewed with the Firefox 3.5 beta 99 or newer. Otherwise the feature demos will not work.

Thunderbird 3 was released a week ago, Firefox 3.5.6 / Firefox 3.0.16 will be released today and Firefox 3.6 Beta 5 should be released on thursday. If Firefox team gets all 3.6 RC blockers fixed by tomorrow, beta 5 will be skipped and the RC is released ASAP.

Apparently, Firefox 3.6 will be released today. You can already get it form Mozilla ftp server if you really want to.

Spite of the personas theme thing there's not much new in 3.6. There's a new "out of date plugin" alert thingy, Firefox startup should be faster and javascript performance should be better... That's about it.

Mozilla will sidestep from it's regular updating scheme and will introduce a new major feature, out of process plugins, in Firefox 3.6.4.

Out of process plugins is an transparent, stability and security feature in Firefox. Basically plugins will run in their own process so that when some third party plugin, like Flash, crashes for the thousandthd time it wont take the whole browser down with it. :D

This is good news... but for me the biggest FireFox problem is memory usage. Man, what a hog.

Not so surprisingly serval OOPP issues were found after the beta was released and the final release may be delayed.

Must agree with this one. And it looks like it's not going to get better any soon. As Mozilla is now focusing on improving the performance. If only Mozilla would use the same amount of resources to improve memory usage as they use on improving startup performance...

On the other hand, if I have to choose between performance and memory usage, I will go with the performance... Or change browser. :P

Actually that is something like 55% (at least in here Finland) on these days. And microsoft's plans to not relese IE 7.0 to Win2k and older versions isn't going to raise EI's market share. :|

But, hey. You got good point and if you want to make them to work in IE, that is great. :D
