Firefox Release Candidate 3.6 Available For Download

Today, Mozilla made Firefox Release Candidate 3.6 available for download. You can download a copy here.

So what’s new in this version of Firefox? According to Mozilla, a faster JavaScript engine, themes, open video, audio, and font standards and suport for location-aware websites.

What’s a “release candidate?” Well, according to PC World, a release candidate in this case means it’s out of beta, and stable for everyday use, but isn’t completely finished. Mozilla cites 70 fixes from the beta in Release Candidate 3.6, and goes on to say that when 3.6 Final is done, your browser will automatically update with it.

So, let’s see how many tabs I can open at once without it crashing. I’m running OSX 10.5.8, 1.33 GHz G4 with 1.25 GB ram.

I’ve downloaded & installed the Release Candidate, and opened a little over 50 tabs at once. The new Firefox holds up nicely. There’s no lag in this WordPress page I’m using, my gMail’s fine…not bad, Firefox!
