Firefox 3.1 will include a native JSON parser that can be used by Web applications instead of eval. Preliminary testing has indicated that the native JSON parser in Firefox delivers significant performance gains. Another impressive feature is support for worker threads, which provide support for concurrent execution in JavaScript. The HTML 5 video element will allow video content to be embedded directly in Web pages, controlled with JavaScript, and manipulated through the DOM. You can check out the demo yourself, if you are running a Firefox nightly build.
