Firefox to get multiprocess browsing for improved stability

Posted on Thursday, July 09 2009 @ 10:07:11 CEST by

Mozilla is working on Electrolysis, a new project that aims to bring multiprocess browsing to Firefox, a feature that's already available in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.
According to Mozilla, splitting up the page rendering workload into multiple processes will improve the browser's performance, security, and stability. The developers have already assembled a prototype that renders a page in a separate process from the interface shell in which it is displayed.

Mozilla has explored the possibility of adopting a multiprocessing approach for Firefox in the past, but the idea didn't gain serious traction in the Firefox developer community until it was implemented by Google and Microsoft in their respective web browsers.
