Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla today released updated versions of the Firefox browser, v1.5.0.10 and v2.0.0.2, for Windows, Mac, and Linux, which close a major security flaw called the 'location.hostname vulnerability'. The fix stops hackers from being able to tamper with how websites are displayed.

I'll use Opera when it gets a decent advertising blocker like "Ad Blocker". Until then, it's useless to me.

It already has one called built in. I just downloaded a filter list for it which I found over here:

Thank you for this, it worked a treat on my Opera install...

Hmm.... now I've just got to consider if I can find a plugin replacement for my spell checker and my media downloaders and I'll have Opera on par with my Firefox installation...
