    For your information, well for the users of Firefox.

    The new version is now released 1 week early apparently, following the security issues raised by German and Frence Cyber-Security Teams.

    I would suggest all users update as soon as you are able. Or switch over to Opera, as we all love Opera [​IMG]

    I change between the 2 really as Rapport does not work with Opera.

    I prefer FireFox, integrated adblock plus is infinitely useful. Trying to get it working with Chrome and Opera is a nightmare.

    Any news on what other updates it has? Or is there just security updates?

    Just security updates as far as I am aware.

    Germany issued a statement telling all users to stop using firefox until an update is available, and it was quite a large hole from what I can see.

    Firefox were just focused on this.

    And what is wrong with Opera? I have never had any problems with it. It's nice to use, nice to look at, works fast, never any pop-ups or issues using it [​IMG]

    Hah, I might add that a huge majority of Poland uses Opera now, and their users have increase, I don't remember exactly, like 200% in the last 3 weeks?

    more like a trunk build, if you want an alpha you'd be going with nightly releases.


    and Opera was also exploited you know. unsure if its been patched yet.
