Beyond Firefox 3.5: A Sneak Peek at Mozilla's Next Brow

Quote:

Mozilla's Firefox 3.5 is off to a running start. The new browser, boasting significant speed increases and a host of added features, was officially released Tuesday morning. By mid-afternoon, the program had surpassed 1.6 million downloads worldwide and was steadily climbing, according to Mozilla's real-time tracking utility.

While most of the tech world is busy getting to know Firefox 3.5, though, Mozilla's engineers are already deep into their next big project: the tentatively numbered Firefox 3.6, codename Namoroka.

The Next Firefox: Meet Namoroka

The next Firefox is currently slated to be released in early- to mid-2010, according to Mozilla's developer notes. That, as we saw with Firefox 3.5 (formerly 3.1), can always change as things moves forward; in fact, Mozilla's already given Namoroka the additional nickname of "Firefox.next" to avoid getting attached to any specific figures.

So what's in store for this mysteriously named new browser? Here are some highlights of what's in the works so far.

Interesting - considering I have been using Minefield (3.6a1 nightly builds) for 3+ months....

It is definitely different. that is for sure....

Let's see - Fx 1 was faster than pheonix builds, 2 was faster than 1, 3 was faster than 2, 3.5 is faster than 3...I'd say it will definitely not be slower....

IMNSHO, though, I think that continuing to push out i386 builds to the general public will continue to make it slower - CPU / Architecture-optimized builds are the way to go these days - the same exact build non optimized and optimized can show up to 30% speed increases if not more.

Minefield from Mozilla is always 32bit - 64bit would have come from a third party....

Check out Index of /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk

I have Fx 3.5, Shiretoko 3.5.1 pre-release (nightly) and Minefield 3.6a1 pre-release (nightly) installed - updated every day too.

Until Flash 64bit comes around I am not going to bother with a 64bit browser....but as soon as it does my conversion to 64bit is going to be fairly immediate. Here's to hoping that Adobe gets that out before 7 goes gold
