Default Firefox Lorentz beta isolates plugin crashes

All of us who use Firefox might have experienced crashing of the browser because of a faulty add-on. Firefox Lorentz, upcoming Firefox version, tends to change just that. It will isolate the plug-in crashes so that the browser is not affected.

The process isolation of plug-ins, is now available in Firefox 3.6.4 beta version released few days ago. The version also fixes a lot of other bugs. 3.6.4 should be an important update.

Nice to see Firefox becoming more stable in the near future.
This new Lorentz feature is can really be useful in determining the cause of the crash, as well as keeping Firefox up and running.

Excluding Chrome, which other browsers isolate their plugins?
