Firefox released version 220.127.116.11 as a Fire Drill (Security) release. This security release addresses a severe vulnerability to Firefox for Windows & Mac users who have installed the Quicktime plugin, at minimum all iTunes users. From reading more into this issue in the above link, it seems like a pretty serious one and I am glad the Firefox team responded promptly.
Get Firefox page does not show version 18.104.22.168 yet, but it is available for download via the following links if you would like to go ahead and upgrade to the latest release.
The auto-update should be happening in the next couple of days if you would like to wait to be prompted to update.
Flock is an excellent browser geared for people who would like to easily discover, access, create and share videos, photos, blogs, feeds and comments across social communities, media providers and popular websites.
It has excellent integration with online services such as Flickr, Del.icio.us, Photobucket, Xanga, various blogs, YouTube. Check out Kyle’s Ultimate Guide to Using Flock for more details on this fabulous alternative to Firefox.
New features include:
- Integration with Facebook, Truveo, Piczo
- New RSS reader that pretty much is its own start page like Netvibes
- Sidebar of friends to keep track of what they are up to
- Ability to drag contents to their pics to share
I have signed up for the private beta and will write more about its features when I try them myself.
