The Firefox version number is "3.6" and the Gecko Platform version number "1.9.2". The release will be shipped as a minor update to users, replacing Firefox 3.5 ("Shiretoko").

Feedback and Test Reports: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/prerelease.html

Namoroka is to be an incremental release, building upon the success of Firefox 3.5.

Namoroka focus on the following areas:

Observable improvements in user-perceptible performance metrics such as startup, time to open a new tab, and responsiveness when interacting with the user interface. Common user tasks should feel faster and more responsive.

Personalization & Customization
Integration of the Mozilla Labs Personas project, improvements to the Awesomebar and form autocomplete.
