Mozilla Releases Firefox 3.6RC2; Final Next Week

Over the holiday weekend, Mozilla released the second release candidate for Firefox 3.6.

At the release candidate stage, major revisions aren't expected, but small tweaks and fixes are part of the process towards the official release.

Those updating from the first release candidate will see that the latest RC2 bump is called a "security and stability update." Grab the download right here.

Other things Mozilla listed as new for this version include:

    *  Made some changes to how we allow third party software to integrate with Firefox in order to prevent crashes.

    * The ability to run scripts asynchronously to speed up page load times.

Look for the final version of Firefox 3.6 to be for everyone a week from today.

    lol in JavaScript speed there is so much more then just JavaScript on a website. It's where things like FF customization and crap weighs in, but imma still just stick to good old Opera.

    Speed isn't everything. Compatibility is kind of a big component too.
