Watch out Opera

Firefox has kicked off …

Originally posted by The Register:

Mozilla has released a public beta of Firefox "Lorentz," a test version of Firefox 3.6 designed to minimize crashes by running Flash, Silverlight, Java, and other plug-ins as a separate process from the core browser.

With OOPP, a shim layer executes the Firefox plug-in API, keeping it separate from the browser proper. If a plug-in crashes or freezes, Firefox loads a page that says so and sends a crash report back to Mozilla. If you then reload the page, the plug-in relaunches.

Lorentz is available for Windows and Linux. You can download the beta here:
