Mozilla & Gecko clones After a number of delays, Mozilla today released version 3.6 of the successful Firefox web browser. It brings with it numerous improvements and new features, and of course speed improvements are welcomed, too.

Speed improvements

Every release has speed improvements. Yet, perhaps I am imagining things, but my browser experience today is generally slower than the days of Firefox 1.0 - they cram so much into a browser that despite all the performance improvements, the Web 2.0 experience requires a multi-Ghz machine with multi-Gb RAM to do things that a well designed desktop app connecting to a remote server could do a decade ago.

Oh what we sacrifice in the name of convenience. *sigh*
