"With Firefox 3.6 now out the door, what new features are coming
next for Mozilla's open source browser? Starting with Firefox 3.6,
Mozilla developers are now set to more rapidly iterate and
integrate features as part of its 'Lorentz' branch. With Lorentz,
Mozilla developers are aiming to include new features faster while
maintaining backwards compatibility and overall browser security
"One of the key new features that the Lorentz branch of Firefox
3.6 will aim to include is a technology that rival browser Google
Chrome helped to popularize – out of process plugins.
"With out of process plugins, browser plugins like Flash are
sandboxed and isolated by the browser. The official project name at
Mozilla for the effort is called Electrolysis."
