Public bug reported:

Firefox 3.1 is a significant release, in that it provides the following:

    * Much lighter memory footprint compared to previous Firefox versions -- ties in with next point...
    * Updated JavaScript engine: Tracemonkey. Highly optimized for speed, and garbage collection.
    * Fixes many stability issues with Flash, and many annoyances with flash video playback are gone.
    * Resistant to random website crashes, including script-heavy ones that have been prone to crashing under 3.0.x
    * Highlighting and Dragging text/images/etc actually works -- in previous version, selecting large elements such a images or large blocks
      of text was unusable, and frankly, it looked ugly due to the lack of anti-aliasing ... all fixed and working smoothly.
    * Ctrl+Tab cycles between browser tabs, like a window manager.

If 3.1 were to be accepted, it would likely mean shipping a beta in Intrepid Ibex.
(Though I would like to note further, I reckon it would be an extremely solid beta if the pre-beta is anything to judge by. "Reasonable fashion"? It's almost indestructible.)

	Alpha release criteria
	    * Alphas must be generally usable for testing websites and features
	    * No significant features broken
	    * Major/high value sites should function and display in a reasonable fashion 
	Beta release criteria
	    * Betas must be stable and usable enough for daily browsing for a large number of people
	    * Features are fully implemented, if not finalized
	    * Most sites should display properly and regression free (from previous major release)
