Firefox 3.6 Beta 1 doesn't know about:me, but it's fast

,----[ Quote ]
| The first official Mozilla Firefox 3.6 Beta 
| release is now available, bringing with it 
| a whole bunch of improvements to the open 
| source web browser. It's also (to my naked 
| eye) missing a few features that I had 
| initially expected to see in Firefox 3.6.


Firefox 3.6 Tweaks Are Mostly Under the Hood

,----[ Quote ]
| "One of the defining characteristics of the 
| Chrome experience is speed," O'Grady 
| explained, and "the Mozilla folks have done 
| a good job of responding to that, both in 
| Firefox 3.5 and 3.6," he said. "Both 
| versions are noticeably quicker."
| Indeed, even Firefox 3.5 is more than twice 
| as fast as Firefox 3, Mozilla says, and 10 
| times as fast as Firefox 2.
| Mozilla has also been continuing to build 
| out user enhancements, O'Grady added, 
| "ranging from the aesthetic -- such as 
| personas, where you can reskin the user 
| interface -- to the more subtle, but 
| potentially more significant."
| As an example of the latter, O'Grady cites 
| the Ubiquity plug-in, which is integrated 
| in the new release and makes the browser 
| "more programmatically accessible," he 
| explained.
