  • Take a rain check on FF3

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-13554_3-9970448-33.html

    I love Firefox. Usually it goes hand-in-hand with Defensive Computing, as Firefox is more secure than Internet Explorer. But not today, not with the release of version 3 of Firefox.

    Don't install Firefox version 3. Not today. not for a while.

    Like all new software, Firefox 3 is best kept at arms length. Version 3 was a long time coming and, no doubt, features lots of new code. At the risk of repeating myself, all new software contains bugs and design flaws. Let the rest of the world debug it for you.

      I'm running FF3 now and as we speak my bank account is being depleted and my computer is now the #1 botspam in the world.

      All thanks to FF3 and their potential bugs.

      Damn - I should have gone for IE8.

        Well, logically you shouldn't download IE8 yet either

              Imagine what would happen if you ever did some real running. I'd bet your heart would explode immediately. A man can always dream.

              Sigh.

                The article refers to security issues.

                  If they want my porn, my Lounge membership or access to my empty bank account, have at it.

                    For the vast majority of computer users stuff like what could happen is a long shot of happening at best...but for the folks that engage in activities that result in even moderate risks, any security issue is serious.

                      I'm much better looking than Michael Horowitz.
