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."

Heh, actually, sometimes I do: I'm paying the all of $5.00 a month that a subscription to LWN costs. I think it's reasonable to ask the users of a website to support it, and I'd prefer to do so with a modest financial contribution rather than adds, if given the choice (at least for sites I'm going to frequent).

And I leave NoScript on all the time -- which doubles in many respects as an add-blocker, since it prevents flash content from executing.
