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.

Honestly, I don't care about version numbers... I use Firefox since 2004, non stop. I have had brief interludes with Chrome, and sometimes Opera, but nothing beats FF...

I now run Scientific Linux 6, and run alongside FF 3.6.23 and FF 8.0...

I can assure you that FF8 is way better !!!!!!

Anyway, I still have Chrome as my secondary browser...
