Firefox Updates and Roadmap

Mozilla released Firefox 1.0.5, which patches a number of security vulnerabilities. You can get more information on the release here or by visiting the Mozilla.org web site.

In addition, more information has been revealed about Firefox 1.1, the next version of the open source web browser. An alpha version of Firefox 1.1 could be ready within just a few days.

If Mozilla can continue to innovate with Firefox and address my two primary concerns—ease of deployment and distributing security updates—then they will continue to steal market share away from Internet Explorer. If nothing else, Mozilla will at least force Microsoft to be competitive again, and that is a success in and of itself.

Mozilla is also updating Thunderbird, the companion e-mail client to Firefox, and that update is expected to be available soon as well.
