Mac OS X There are several things which take quite some getting used to when switching from any platform to the Mac. There are things like the universal menubar, the dock, Expose, and many more. One of the things that often leads to confusion for new users is the installation process for applications. Mozilla developer Alexander Limi talks about the problems Mozilla runs into when it comes to Firefox' installation process on the Mac, and a possible solution. Update: A possible solution?

The MacOS X developer tools allow you to create Installer.app install packages - that work exactly like the Windows installer style "wizard" installation process. Why not just use these? I don't get why this is an issue? It seems like another "solution is search of a problem.."
