    Mozilla today launched Aurora, a semi-stable dev build of Firefox that represents Mozilla's move toward a new, rapid-release cycle aimed at "giving users more opportunities to participate in building Firefox."
    Mozilla's always had nightly (Minefield) and beta builds that users could test drive, but Aurora adds a release that lives between the nightly build (now simply called Nightly) and the beta build. Aurora is a bleeding edge release that updates every six weeks, but it also undergoes some QA before updating, making Aurora more stable than Nightly—and a browser that power users might realistically use as their default.

    Most Google Chrome power users run the beta or dev channels of the Chrome browser because it offers access to new features sooner, and Google generally does a good job of keeping this "unstable" channel relatively stable. Hopefully Aurora provides Firefox users with an in-road to do the same thing. Mozilla explains their thinking on the Mozilla Blog, or in more detail at the Mozilla Developer Center. You can download your channel of choice at the link below.[/p]

    Old news, but it's true. I use Aurora as my primary now.

    Also, it's Aurora like aurora borealis, not "auroa" which I have no idea how you got that even though your source spells it correctly 5 times.

    So, it's like:

    Heston Blumenthal (Nightly)
    Gordon Ramsay (Aurora)
    Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (Beta)

    in the 'risk levels'

    p.s I don't know why I just posted this, but it fits, if you think about it.

    so nightly does things for no reason spontaneously, aurora swears its head off and beta appeals to middle-aged mums

    No. Try uninstalling and resinstalling it.
