Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has announced the release of Firefox 8 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Firefox for Android. This release appears to be a relatively minor update. Perhaps the main feature of this update is the ability for user control over third-party addons. "At Mozilla, we think you should be in control, so we are disabling add-ons installed by third parties without your permission and letting you pick the ones you want to keep." A detailed technical description of this new Firefox release can be found in the release notes.

Who cares about the stupid version number?

I'll never understand why people get so worked up about a silly little number you never even see while using the product. They could call it Firefox 73.2 AAA - 1400.C, and I still wouldn't care. New version of firefox available? Download, install, done.
