在Mozilla FireFox 3.5 “Shiretoko”版发布前两天,3.6版本的开发代号也已经公布:“Namoroka”.

这一版本预计在2010年上半年正式发布,新版将采用Gecko 1.9.2版本的内核,提升性能和管理浏览器的能力,同时扩展和主题对浏览器影响性能更小,以下是最新的开发计划:

性能

The time taken for startup, opening a new tabs, and responsiveness with the user inferface will be improved. Common user tasks will feel more responsive and faster. It’s a good news for daily users. The new enhancements will enable Firefox 3.6 to :

  • open a new tab
  • load a bookmarked page
  • autocomplete a location in the Awesomebar
  • play rich media content

in less than 50 milliseconds. Firefox 3.6 will also only take less than 50 milliseconds to startup. Firefox 3.6 will also be implementing animation and other techniques to improve perceive speed and efficiently reduce the lag time between action and feedback.

个性化定制

Firefox 3.6 will also introduce identity management and probably the feature to create more than one users for the browser.

Light Weight Themes and Add-ons

Firefox 3.6 will allow the user to install “light weight” themes and add-ons without requiring a restart to install the selected component.

Customized Browser Behaviors

Firefox 3.6 will introduce identity management and will customize browser behaviors based on personal history like:

  • opening a new tab / navigation tasks
  • search related tasks
  • form fill tasks
  • about:me personal portal

Task Based Navigation

Firefox 3.6 will support web navigation by tag/date/source metadata.

Tabs

It will also add the ability to create, save and restore groups of tabs as well as searching for an existing tab.

Common Web-application Tasks

It will also allow users to accomplish common web-application tasks with the help of Taskfox. Taskfox will be part of the existing Firefox user interface, and will be localized to all locales that Firefox ships with.

Improved Download Manager

Firefox 3.6 will introduce file management tasks such as deleting, moving, cut/pasting in the download manager.

Web Application Support

Firefox 3.6 will improve editing tools for creating rich data on websites, allow users to save a page as web app and also, improve user interface for sending files to websites.

System Integration With Windows 7, Aero Glass, Aero Peek & More

Firefox 3.6 will introduce a better system integration with Windows 7, Windows Aero Glass, Windows Aero Peek, OSX Dictionary, OSX Services & AppleScript and OSX Keychain.

Other Improvements

User Experience Enablement

  • support user interface animations in XUL
  • compositor (to support layered/cropped user interface window elements)

Performance

  • chrome JIT
  • ability to register chrome components without restart
  • network resource pre-caching to reduce page load times when clicking a link
  • improved cache pinning support
  • make cache more reliable so that it can be used when restoring a user session on a restart or after a crash
  • solidifying nsIRunnable and thread support before Mozilla 2

Mozilla will take feedback from developers, testers and users to ensure that they are properly investing time and resources. More details on Namoroka are available on MozillaWiki.
