Firefox 3.6 Namoroka Roadmap Revealed

Picture Holder1

Named after Namoroka National Park located in the northwestern part of Madagascar, the successor to the yet to be released Firefox3.5 ("Shiretoko") is loosely expected to arrive in 2010. Firefox 3.6 is expected to focus on several big ticket changes and enhancements around performance, personalization & customization, task-based navigation, web application support and system integration. Mozilla is currently working on Firefox 3.5, which is maturing rapidly. The third beta release, which landed last month, includes a number of compelling features such as support for the HTML 5 video element and the new high-performance TraceMonkey JavaScript engine. A fourth beta is expected to arrive later this month, and the final release is expected in June. Firefox 3.5 was originally called 3.1, but the version number was increased to reflect the large number of features that have been introduced.

Namoroka will be based on Gecko 1.9.2 and will focus on the following areas:

  • Performance: Observable improvements in user-perceptible performance metrics such as startup, time to open a new tab, and responsiveness when interacting with the user interface. Common user tasks should feel faster and more responsive.
  • Personalization & Customization: Simplify the development, discovery, installation and management of browser customization and functional extension. Where possible, provide a custom fit user experience based on a user's interaction history. Act in the user's interests, leveraging existing knowledge about their identity and browsing habits.
  • Task Based Navigation: Allow users to organize their tabs, history, downloaded files, and other resources according to the task they were attempting to accomplish. Provide support for executing common web-based tasks, mash-up style, without having to visit a website.
  • Web Application Support: Blur the distinction between web and desktop applications, providing web developers with the tools required to create rich application experiences for a user who is connected or disconnected from the Internet. Act as the intermediary between web applications and the user's OS desktop.
  • System Integration: Integrate with the look and feel of the host operating system, including data-level interactions with existing system services such as dictionaries.
Namoroka will employ a highly iterative, milestone based development process which will rely on feedback from developers, testers and users to ensure that we are properly investing time and resources. An initial exploration phase will be used to investigate development cost and benefit, as well as to create user interaction prototypes. This will be followed by an alpha development phase for early user testing and feedback, and then a beta phase for broader compatibility testing.
