Linuxhelp _ News _ Firefox 1.0 Released

Posted by: Corey Nov 9 2004, 05:59 AM

The Firefox team has reached a great milestone today with their 1.0 release. I think this release will be the biggest (and most anticipated) browser release ever. Firefox has been gaining a lot of momentum in the past 6 to 8 months, all culminating to this point. The SpreadFirefox team has also been accepting donations the last few weeks so it could run some full-page ads in the New York Times, coinciding with the 1.0 release to try and get the word out to the general public.

Make sure you drop by and of 1.0 today.

SuSE should provide an update soon via the On-Line update feature using Yast.

Unless you are having a problem, I would wait for them to upgrade. (Their update will be SuSE specific with file locations, profile imports, etc.)

If SuSE hasn't put out the 1.0 release within a couple weeks, you can post another request and we will see what we can do to get the new version installed for you by installing from the generic binaries.

It is better to use the version dsitributed with your distro if possible, because the distros do things (like change the launch scripts) to integrate the browser into their environment.
