Firefox is Ready

I’ve been running Firefox 1.5RC1 on my machine for a few days now – essential plugins are available for it (SessionSaver, AdBlock) even if current versions are a bit hard to find. The Extension updater machanism is roaring and will automatically manage versioning and updating of extensions.

<p>But more importantly, it updated itself to 1.5RC2 this morning.  This is what we’ve been waiting for.  A browser that’s always up-to-date on security patches that’s not IE.</p>
<p>Plus the Mac version doens’t suck anymore.  Oh, and it’s <i>fast</i>.  Way better than Safari, especially loaded down with Saft, and, impressively, even better than the Mozilla Suite.  </p>
<p>Gentlemen, we’ve arrived.
