Following the release of Firefox 3.5 late this June, and the release of the first Firefox 3.5 update just a little while ago, comes news about the next iteration of the Mozilla developed web browser: Firefox 3.6. According to Firefox Director Mike Beltzner, we can expect to see the first Alpha builds of Firefox 3.6 as soon as next week. Alongside Firefox 3.6 Alpha 1, Mozilla will also roll out the upcoming Mozilla-1.9.2 branch.

Here are the dates on which you can expect to get a taste of Firefox 3.6:
- On Wednesday, July 29th, the deadline/freeze of Firefox 3.6 Alpha 1 is scheduled.
- On Friday, July 31st, you can expect Firefox 3.6 Alpha 1 to be released to the public.
- On Friday, August 7th, the branch of Mozilla-1.9.2 will be rolled out.

Let’s just hope that everything goes according to plan and the first Alpha build of Firefox 3.6 is released on schedule. In the meantime you can check out these new features that will potentially make it into another future version of the browser, mainly Firefox 3.7.

Moving on, you might remember that in June the Mozilla Foundation called on its community to help it spread the word on just how fast Firefox 3.5 really is. In this regard Mozilla launched the Fastest Firefox web page where videos focusing on speed were posted – like the video of Kent French, the world’s fastest clapper, the video pf Steven Purugganan, the world’s fastest stacker, and the video of Todd Taylor, the world’s fastest Banjo player. According to Mozilla, the purpose of Fastest Firefox was to spread the word about Firefox 3.5’s speed and give the community the change to share some laughs by showing off their speediest skills.

An update on Fastest Firefox has now been provided by John Slater, Creative Director with Mozilla: “I’m happy to report that we received almost 250 videos from Firefox fans around the world and, with the help of our friends at Nobox, have put together a compilation of our favorites. As an added bonus (and a follow-up to our videos from the world’s fastest clapper, sport stacker and banjo player) it features an introduction from Fran Capo, the world’s fastest talking female. So, if you want to see the Mozilla community in full speedy action, head over to the Fastest Firefox page and watch the video. Lastly, big thanks to everyone who took the time to send us a clip, and especially to those whose clips we used.”
