Update Firefox 3.6.6

Belum ada satu minggu, Mozilla sudah mengeluarkan update terbaru untuk browser andalan mereka, Firefox. Sebelumnya, pada tanggal 22 Juni 2010, Mozilla mengeluarkan update Firefox 3.6.4, dan hari ini Mozilla sudah mengeluarkan update yang baru.

Kenapa Mozilla mengeluarkan update dalam range waktu yang dekat? Dikutip dari blog mereka, dalam update sekarang, para developer menambahkan waktu tunggu bagi Firefox sebelum menonaktifkan plugin yang crash. Fitur ini sudah ada di update 3.6.4, yaitu crash protection dengan mengisolasi plugin yang crash tersebut, seperti yang dilakukan Google Chrome.

The crash protection feature, first introduced in Firefox 3.6.4, protects Windows and Linux users from crashes and freezes caused by third party plugins such as Flash and Silverlight. When a plugin crashes, users can reload the Web page to restart the plugin and continue browsing. When a plugin freezes, making the whole browser unresponsive, Firefox 3.6.4 terminates the unresponsive plugin after waiting 10 seconds. These changes were tested with a beta audience of close to one million users.

Following the release of Firefox 3.6.4 we heard from some users, mainly those using older computers, that they sometimes expect longer periods of non-responsiveness from plugins, especially with games. For these users the default timeout of 10 seconds was too short. To address this, we increased the amount of time Firefox waits for a plugin to respond before terminating it from 10 to 45 seconds. This change has been made in Firefox 3.6.6, which was released today as an automatic update for all users. Source [ here ]

One thought on “Update Firefox 3.6.6”

  1. sekarang ada plugin kontainer juga. Menurut saya yang menggunakan firefox setiap hari, rasanya resource memory firefox terlalu besar..sekitar 300an MB. Kadang dalam 12 jam membuat komputer lambat dengan resource 380 an MB.
    Kalau Google Chrome memakai resource memory terpisah2. Intinya resource besar juga dan kadang banyak frame yang malah terdownload, dipakai dalam waktu 12 jam kadang responsibilitynya berkurang.
