Mozilla & Gecko clones "The Mozilla development community has rolled out the latest beta of its Firefox 3.6 browser. 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. The new release also aims to appease cutting-edge developers, with support for various new standards."

If you are talking about Adblock, be aware that the ad-blocking extensions for Chrome don't really block ads so much as hide them from view. Your bandwidth will still be consumed for someone to send you advertising content, even if that content is not displayed to you.


Plus, they can still feed you with all those crunchy cookies to track you across the net. There's currently no match for Adblock Plus on Chrome simply because AFAIK Chrome does not have an API for content filtering (yet). Probably for good reason as advertisement is Google's bread and butter business and it shouldn't be *too* easy (that is: impossible) to write an efficient and effective advertisement blocker.
