Firefox 3.6.4 Beta Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Firefox 3.6.4 has been in the talks lately 
| because of the intention of the Mozilla 
| developers to add out-of-process plugins to 
| that version of the web browser which 
| basically means that popular plugins run in 
| their own process instead of the main 
| browser process. This is beneficial in case 
| of a plugin crash as it will only take down 
| its own process and not the whole web 
| browser.

Firefox Speed Test

,----[ Quote ]
| OK happily there has been a large speed up 
| in 3.7.a4 as regards to the filtering.
| The filter operation in 3.7.a4 takes 6 
| times less than it did in 3.6. :-)
| It does not look as if the reload time has 
| seen any improvement.
| The improvements in 3.7.a4 are very 
| encouraging but it makes you wonder what 
| Google is doing to get such incredible sub 
| 10sec times.
| Luckily as it is open source someone can go 
| have a look :-)

| Wednesday at the Black Hat conference. The
| open-source free tool is designed to address
| the shortcomings in other programs used to
| analyze malicious Web sites, said Stephan
| Chenette, a principal security researcher at
| Websense, which lets Chenette develop
| Fireshark in the course of his job.
