Firefox 1.0.4 has been released. If you’re using Firefox, you’ll want this upgrade, as it patches a serious security vulnerability. Go get it.

A couple days ago the IE team posted gracious, professional comments about this particular vulnerability. Especially gracious considering the crap they have to put up with on that weblog. Good stuff, but I can barely stand to read the comments from overzealous FOSS fanboys. I’ve made my fair share of cracks at IE‘s expense, but I hope that they’ve been at least reasonable/reasoned or obviously tongue-in-cheek. I certainly try for that now.

And on a similar vein, if you’re a Safari user, be sure to deselect the option to automatically “open ‘safe’ files after downloading.” Then read why. Besides being an insecure default, automatically opening downloads is just damn annoying.

Enough already, go get the new Firefox if you haven’t already.
