Firefox 3.6.4 Will Add the Out of Process Plugins Twist

Quote:
The next update to Firefox 3.6 will be a minor refresh with a twist. Essentially, Mozilla has taken the Out of Process Plugins feature from the next major iteration of the Firefox browser and integrated it into the version of Firefox released earlier this year. Early adopters are already free to test-drive Firefox 3.6 with OOPP via the codename Lorentz release, which was offered to testers almost a week ago. Firefox 3.6.4 will be the first stable version of the open source browser to feature Out of Process Plugins, which will also be included in future iterations of Firefox.

nice! next they just need something like Chrome's thing where if a tab crashes it won't bring down the whole browser, or is that what this does?

Here is a short explanation of this feature for us rookies.

The main feature of this release is out-of-process plugins: on Windows and Linux, plugins such as Flash and Silverlight run in a separate process from the browser. If a plugin crashes it will not crash the browser, and unresponsive plugins are automatically restarted.

I don't know where they got that name (Out-of-Process). Why did't they call it "Separate Process for Plugins" so we don't have to Google it to find out what they are talking about.

Why do things the easy way when with just a little more effort you can confuse people?
