Firefox 3.1 (Shiretoko) planned features draft

,----[ Quote ]
| A very early draft of planned features reveals that as expected, this release
| will be mainly about landing stuff that didn’t make it on time for the
| Firefox 3, along with the usual performance, stability and security bug
| fixes.
| Visual tab switching and tab searching/filtering were both tried for Firefox
| 3, abandoned for other more critical features, and are being considered for
| 3.1. Ctrl+Tab, a extension developed by Dao Gottwald implements both of them
| displaying a thumbnail of the opened tabs when pressing Ctrl + Tab to switch
| tabs.

Developers: Firefox 3.1 Update Should Be "Easy"

,----[ Quote ]
| The release of Firefox 3.0 has been a resounding success, but for some the
| upgrade path has been less than painless. The latest version of the open
| source browser differed enough from previous versions that many add-ons had
| to be substantially rewritten before they would work with the new release.
| And just when the dust appeared to be clearing, Firefox 3.1 is on the
| horizon.
