Firefox for Intel Macs
Mozilla.org today released Firefox 1.5.02, an update to popular open-source browser that brings support for Apple's new Intel-based Macs. Version 188.8.131.52 also provides native support for Macintosh with Intel Core processors, and stability and security enhancements that are part of its "ongoing program to provide a safer Internet experience for our users." The organization says it recommends that all Firefox users upgrade to this latest version. A full set of fixes is listed here, noting that the update includes several security holes, the most serious of which could lead to remote code execution (however, details were not provided yet). The developers note that there is no Talkback on Intel-based Macs when running natively or under Rosetta.
