Firefox 3.6 RC1 Released

Mozilla has made the first release candidate for Firefox 3.6 available for download this morning, following a recent announcement that further releases would be delayed.

Firefox 3.6, codename “Namoroka”, looks to improve startup time and general responsiveness, among other issues.

For those of us who aren’t in the know about software versioning, as a “release candidate”, Mozilla is hoping this is what Firefox 3.6, without the asterisk, is going to look like.

“Should everything run smoothly during testing this is what will be released to our users as the official version after a beta period,” reads the description on Mozilla’s development wiki.

Downloads are available for Windows, Mac and Linux from Mozilla’s FTP site.
