Firefox 3.6.4 Beta Released


Firefox 3.6.4 has been in the talks lately because of the intention of the Mozilla developers to add out-of-process plugins to that version of the web browser which basically means that popular plugins run in their own process instead of the main browser process. This is beneficial in case of a plugin crash as it will only take down its own process and not the whole web browser.
The feature was first introduced in the development release Firefox 3.6.3 Plugin 1 and has been carried over to the first beta release of Firefox 3.6.4.
The major feature of the beta is the out-of-process functionality. But the new version fixes several security and stability issues in Firefox 3.6.3 as well.
