http://www.mozilla.org to get the latest version
how do they do that?
Hopefully it'll be in backports or the ubuntu repositories in the next couple days.
OMG That's impossible!!! FF is the safest browser ever!
That'll teach IE haters that the only safe browser is the one still in devellopment or on paper.
And everyone says Firefox doesn't have any seciruty holes or flaws...
oh that's what that red arrow means. updating ...
anyone who says there are no flaws has no idea what they are talking about. the flaws just get fixed quickly - unlike MS apps.
It's just a matter of when and/or if the holes get discovered. I'll stick to my IE, although i like FF's dta and unlinker.
the differene is with mozilla its fixed within a week, with ie its fixed within 2+ years HOPEFULLY.
Don't worry. IE 7 is coming soon!
WOW! one mistake compared to IE's 1000's.
I'm gonna love it when IE7 comes and it's wank.
Yep. That's the big technical advantage of free software, bugs are found and fixed much more quickly than in non-free software.
firefox is a great browser, probably one of if not the best.....there is no such thing as a perfect piece of software
In my opinion the more a software becomes popular, the more it is exposed to hackers attention. As firefox is increasing it's market share day by day and attracting the attention of media, hackers interest in firefox has risen and we are most likely to hear more and more security issues from Firefox in the coming months probably... I am not saying that Firefox is not secure, it is still one of the safest browsers available in the market. But no software is flawless, however it can be made more secure by using complementary softwares such as firewalls. Another browser that claims to be the safest is Opera. Well I have been using it for a while now and the latest version "8" is a hit in my opinion. As it is not the target of hackers yet, it is still the safest browser in my opinion. Furthermore Opera has taken the security issue in browsers one step ahead features such as a unique security information field that indicates the trustworthiness of banking and shopping Web sites are just few of them. If you want a secure fast and simple browser, I would say that u should try Opera 8, you have nothing to loose, but if you don't try it than you will never know what you are missing.
Went into Backports sometime last week
I'll stick with opera... thank you very much.
opera is still > *
