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.

Between Firefox 1.0 and 3.6 Mozilla have fixed a massive number of memory leaks and bloat, as well as implemented a new memory manager (jmalloc) and Firefox 3.0 was shown to be the best browser for low-memory usage over time. If anything, the increase of memory used is because the increase of bloat in websites has outpaced Mozilla’s improvements!
