    The article says that Firefox is going to start using multiple processes for increased stability. I don't think that's multithreading, is it?

    Multiple processes = multiple threads

    At least that's considered true for most people.

    For people who're more technical and want to know the truth, almost everything in Windows is multi-threaded. E.g. a single tab for IE is about 20 threads, explorer.exe is around 10-15 threads, System process is around 70-80 threads...etc

    Ahh ok cool. I'm interested in where Chrome and IE will be by the time Firefox releases this. The browser war is always interesting.

    This will be a huge improvement to an already excellent browser.

    To be honest, I will only continue using Firefox as long as Chrome lacks add-ons. However, seeing that add-ons will be available soon, there will be little reason to continue using FF.
