Get it before the hackers do.
Firefox 188.8.131.52 was released on Friday. This is mostly a bug-fixing release that includes fixes for seven different security bugs that were found this year (click here for a list).
Personally, I’m nonplussed by the Firefox project’s point-point-point releases. I’m also troubled that its people have taken so long to get this release out. They were nimble and fast at the beginning, but they are quickly becoming another “legacy browser” that has code bloat and a zillion features that all need to work properly together.
How dearly I wish for software that gets better over time, rather than worse.
