In addition to the usual round of bug fixes, Firefox 3.6 beta version 5, comes with a number of new features and performance enhancements. The browser offers the ability for users to easily reskin the browsers with a new visual theme. The new version can also run scripts asynchronously, which should speed load times of pages that have multiple scripts.

Well, yeah, but althogh Chrome is doing a good job in terms of running the tabs in seperate processes...

On a tangential note, I've noticed a number of posts lately which imply that Chrome runs each tab in its own process. Isn't the default mode "process per site", though, with "process per tab" being another option?

From a privacy standpoint... Chromium's code is open. You can use that rather than Google's binary.
