Windows 7: Firefox to Get Multi-Process Plugins

04 Apr 2010   #1

Windows 10 Pro x64
Firefox to Get Multi-Process Plugins soon

Firefox may be the most popular browser around, as long as we leave out Internet Explorer, which probably isn't that fair, but, for some time, it has seemed to be lagging behind Google Chrome when it comes to new features and development momentum. Maybe Chrome's break-neck release cycle makes it look like it's adding new features faster, but Mozilla needs to start picking up the pace.

Firefox developers seem to be realizing this as well and the latest (more or less) official goals for the second quarter are a little more ambitious than usual. One feature that has developers talking is the goal of having at least partial support for Direct2D hardware acceleration on the Windows platform. This would enable Firefox to utilize the graphics card to render some of the content that should translate in a snappier experience for the users.
