Firefox 3.7a4pre available

April 16, 2010 by Rich@E-vertise.Com

I've posted a recent build of the next version of Firefox to my website. You can download it from:

This version contains several OS/2 enhancements and fixes:
- scrolling should require 25-50% less CPU usage than previously;
there are other less noticable improvements in display speed
- previously, switching to a new tab before the page loaded
(i.e. getting a blank screen before anything was displayed)
consumed an extra 1-3mb of memory for the life of that tab;
this memory usage has been eliminated
- there's a new OGG decoder as well as changes in the OS/2 audio
component that make it far less likely that normal system
activity will interrupt the audio stream
- users of Matrox video drivers should see a normal, non-slanted
display; however, video performance will be considerably
slower/more CPU-intensive than would be the case with SNAP
- users of FlashBlock will no longer see a floating rectangle
that fails to move or update when scrolling
Please let me know if you see any bugs or have other problems.
