Back in March, Mozilla announced it was amping up its Firefox release schedule, partly to keep pace with more-regularly updated browsers such as Google Chrome.

Which is why today, just a couple of months after the June release of Firefox 5, Mozilla is rolling out Firefox 6, the latest edition of its popular open-source browser. In terms of user interface, regular Firefox users won't notice much of a difference in version 6; most of the real changes are under the hood.

Among them: improved start-up time, bolstered pop-up advert prevention, and a Scratchpad tool for JavaScript developers. You can get your hands on Firefox 6 now through the Mozilla FTP servers, or you can wait until Tuesday for the official roll-out. Or you can just skip Firefox 6 altogether, and wait for Firefox 7. As Katherine Noyes writes over at PC World, even as Mozilla introduces Firefox 6, it is taking the wraps of the beta edition of 7.
