Codebreaker

Mozilla walks away from Firefox 4, businesses

John Moe Jun 28, 2011

After all, the browser is three months old. How could Mozilla be expected to support a dinosaur like that?

Mozilla has recently moved to a quicker turnaround cycle on versions of its browser and Firefox 4 has been replaced by Firefox 5. What has caught a lot of people off guard is that Mozilla will no longer be offering security updates and bug fixes of earlier versions, meaning you have to upgrade to the new (free) browser in order to have the highest security. This is because unlike big companies like Microsoft and Google, Mozilla just doesn’t have the people and resources to do a whole lot of testing.

The upshot is that while rapid updates might be good for individual users, it kind of stinks for businesses who have to go in and upgrade every machine on site.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
