Just a week after the official announcement from Mozilla about the availability of its Firefox 3.6 Release Candidate 1 (RC1) for free downloading, the latest update of Firefox 3.6 RC 2 is now released. While the official final release of Firefox 3.6 is still pending release, tentatively targeted for end of January 2010, Firefox users who want to try this latest browser version which is faster, more responsive and has been optimized to run on small device operating systems such as Maemo can get a sneak previwe by downloading the RC2 release. This is considered to be stable and safe to use for daily web browsing, and represents the features and content that will be in the final product release.

There are substantial changes in Firefox 3.6 RC2 compared to the earlier release. This release is available in more than 70 languages for users to select their local version. This version has improved substantially in terms of performance, stability, security and features. It is able to run scripts asynchronously to speed up page load times and improve the JavaScript performance. Users are also allowed to change their browser’s appearance with a single click, with built-in support for Personas. This release supports the WOFF font format and new CSS, DOM & HTML5 web technologies. Users can display open and native video in full screen and the browser supports poster frames as well.
