Mozilla & Gecko clones "Mozilla, faced with new competitive pressures, has begun work on three separate, significant changes to Firefox. First is a new JavaScript engine that - with a transfusion from the project behind Apple's Safari - should run Web-based programs at least 30 percent faster. Second is a new graphics engine for Windows that will take advantage of hardware acceleration for graphics and text. And third is a programming tool to help bring to fruition a new system for Firefox add-ons."

Tab isolation will come in a 3.6.* feature update, the beta version is buried in mozilla.org, it does actually work. But just as the Qt port to bring better cross plateform support, it's not going really fast.

Actually, no. Only out of process plug-ins are planned to be introduced in one of the minor updates. True process isolation will probably be released with the next major version of Firefox.
