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.

There should be a long term support version of firefox next year. For now, is it possible for you to stay with Firefox 3.6 until it nears the end of support and then go with long term support versions?

I am not a fan of the new version numbering, however, in my experience the quality of firefox has increased quickly in recent months.
