Johnathan Nightingale, in a post on the Mozilla Developer Center, promises that the next installment of the company's browser will be more stable and secure by preventing thrid-party add-on developers from dropping code in the same directory as Firefox's.
Following Cenzic's release of their report revealing the most prominent types of Web application vulnerabilities for the first half of 2009, an article from TG Daily focused on the fact that 44% of the browser vulnerabilities declared during this period were in Mozilla Firefox. But is looking at that percentage enough to call it the "most insecure browser"?
Mozilla has announced the release of Firefox 3.1 Alpha 1, "Shiretoko," for developers and testers. Built on the pre-release version of the Gecko 1.9.1 platform, Shiretoko includes a variety of new features.
