Firefox sets goal to include Direct2D support

Posted on Sunday, April 04 2010 @ 04:05:39 CEST by


Mozilla has issued a goal to ship a developer preview version of Firefox with Direct2D support by the end of the second quarter. This new feature should boost Firefox's responsiveness to user interaction.

Here's a look at the other goals for the second quarter:
  • Shipping a final version of Firefox for Windows with the out-of-process plugins feature that's designed to improve stability by putting Flash Player and other plug-ins in a separate memory area. Out-of-process plug-ins are one aspect of Electrolysis.
  • Shipping a beta version of Firefox with out-of-process Flash support for Macs using Snow Leopard, aka Mac OS X 10.6.
  • Building support for the JaegerMonkey technology for faster JavaScript performance to the point where its performance can be tested, and supporting the EcmaScript 5 version of the standard that underlies JavaScript.
  • Releasing an alpha version of Firefox with support for the Indexed DB local storage database technology.
  • Turning on the HTML5 parser by default in a beta version, a move that will mean Firefox can decode Web pages written with the new Web page standard under development.
  • Source: CNET
