Firefox gets Multi-Process Plugins

Mozilla had been working hard to catchup with Google Chome. Multiprocess is still on the plan and we now see one achievement, multi-process plugins. The feature is now available in latest nightly trunk.

It’s the same power which prevents Google Chrome from eating entire CPU when a single plugin goes bad. It is said that this is nothing but a copy of the code from Chromium builds. Though this doesn’t break any Open Source license, but for some this might be something worth shedding concern on.

Since this is a Alpha version, the feature is disabled by default. To enable it, go to about:config and change the dom.ipc.plugins.enabled value to true. Restart Minefield, now  task manager should show you that your plugins are now running in new process.

What we await for  is one process per Tab for True Multi Core execution. but what we know is that it’s on the project milestone, but not there in the near future. If Firefox takes more from Chrome, I won’t mind that coz I still love Firefox. If Firefox fails to be competitive, soon the full-fledged  extensible Chrome will take on. After all, Open source is all about taking the best and making it better.

What do you think?
