    Great News for Firefox Users: The Electrolysis project which aimed to create a multi-process architecture for that browser had been put on hold in 2011 - but now it's been revealed that this project has been resumed since January 2013.

    The biggest problem is the compatibility of countless extensions. That's why a release date is not yet known. However, you can already test it in the newest nightlies.

    I'm happy they are doing this. In my opinion, Firefox is in dire need of it and the sooner it is done, the better. Whether they will be able to take it to the level of Chrome remains to be seen, but I am not sure they even want to go that far with it.
