Mozilla takes another stab at elusive multiprocess Firefox
Internet Explorer does it. Chrome does it too. Now Mozilla is trying -- again -- to make Firefox run multiple processes at the same time.
Firefox may offer a lot of competitive features in a tight browser marketplace, but one thing it lacks is the kind of sandboxed, multiprocess architecture under its hood that other browsers have had for years.
Changing to a multiprocess architecture for Firefox would result in numerous benefits, wrote Firefox engineer Bill McCloskey on Thursday, in the three key areas of performance, security, and stability. A multiprocess architecture splits various browser functions into multiple tasks on the computer, instead of bundling them all together as one process for the browser.
