Mozilla has updated its free open source Firefox browser to version 3.6, which it claims is the fastest yet in processing JavaScript.

According to Mozilla, the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine brings "screaming fast" performance to Firefox 3.6, which is three times faster than Firefox 3 and 20% faster than Firefox 3.5.

Firefox 3.6 also brings with it new features and additional support for the latest HTML 5 specification, including open video and audio.

The new features include personalised browser themes called Personas and a Plugin Uploader that helps make sure computers are safe from potential security vulnerabilities by keeping plugins up-to-date.

Mozilla also claims Firefox 3.6 includes stability improvements, resulting in better performance for everyday web tasks such as e-mail, uploading photos and social networking.
