This is supposed to be the largest shipment from Firefox.
A long-standing project from Mozilla, the e10s or Electrolysis is about to include various process with Firefox. Stability and performance of the browser is bound to get boosted by the fundamental change in design.
The Firefox multi-process claimed more attention since the beginning of Electrolysis in 2009.
Multi processor systems are bound to provide an edge to different processes in terms of performance. As an outcome, crashing of the browser is prevented and stability gets improved in the event of a fall of any app or website.
