Editors' Review

No longer a fledgling upstart, Firefox is the gold standard of alternatives to the still-dominant Internet Explorer. Firefox 3.6 is full-featured, lightning fast, and secure. Its killer selection of add-ons remains strong, with built-in support for the next generation of themes, called Personas, plus the latest update makes version 3.6 about 20 percent faster than version 3.5. However, competition is strong and it can no longer be said that Firefox is the fastest browser available.

Several notable improvements in the latest revamp keep Firefox abreast of current browsing tech. In addition to the aforementioned improvements made to the TraceMonkey JavaScript engine so that it renders Web applications faster, there have also been other significant under-the-hood changes. These include: blocking third-party software from encroaching on Firefox's file system turf to increase stability; support for the Web Open Font Format, which means many non-English browser users should have a faster time loading Web pages with downloadable fonts; and support for the File interface, which can help with tasks such as uploading multiple photos and is part of the draft HTML5-standard effort. HTML5 support debuted in Firefox 3.5. Another deeper change to the browser is that it is now running scripts asynchronously, which can help to load a Web page faster by putting off some work until the high-priority chores are complete. Firefox 3.6 also isolates out-of-date plug-ins so they do not become a security risk.

Unlike Firefox 3.5, which was more about keeping the browser current rather than blazing new trails, Firefox 3.6 is once again on the warpath. Upgrading is highly recommended.

"A noticeable improvement."

July 21, 2010  |  By ny2nv

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.6.6

Pros

Looks a lot cleaner (reminds me of "Chrome"), a substantial speed improvement. I know all browser claim to be faster with each upgrade, this is the first I could actually see.

Cons

None so far, except plugin's will need updates.

Summary

Potentially a Great Upgrade. Look forward to final release.

"My favorite web browser"

July 19, 2010  |  By billd10

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.6.6

Pros

Seldom crashes or has any other issues.

Cons

Some websites still work better with IE, although I had to uninstall IE8 because it would not render some pages properly--I reverted to IE6, and maybe IE7 is OK, but I seldom use it.

Summary

My default browser.
