[quote=jmillar] FB's move may have something to do with the recent privacy alarm bells after GMail accounts in China were compromised using an IE vulnerability that was patched hurriedly just yesterday. All the warning lights must have turned red at Facebook. These sites rely on privacy to reassure their users that they can pour their souls into them via CV's, photos, letters, comments and so on. If this privacy is compromised their business model may take a hit. Even if it isn't, there may be a blip in their growth charts. So, what do they do? A jumpy Corporation turns to the experts. Like Secunia, for instance. Secunia's PSI application gives a negative rating to FF 3.0.17, even though they specify in their website that the vendor has patched all reported vulnerabilities. (and presumably can be considered safe) Nevertheless, the (very useful, though sometimes a bit confusing) PSI app reports the following on FF 3.0.17: "This program has reached end-of-life and is no longer supported by the vendor" and gives it a red mark (potentially unsafe, because unpatched vulnerabilities that may be discovered will NOT be fixed) This would of course also apply to FF2 and to "Deer Park" (1.5) and earlier. Amusingly Secunia has yet to discover K-Meleon as a bona fide independent app, but Facebook apparently DOES see the version of the gecko and the potential security risks and the fact that it's no longer maintained. So let's be patient and contribute to the birth of 1.6 I'm writing this on Fred's 2.02pre "Seamonkey" based K-Meleon and loving it. I only miss the search engine configuration delights (they can be done by hand but it's quite messy) and the Session saver. And it has never crashed. It IS a little heavier on the RAM than 1.5.3 Why does code always seem to fatten up? :-)[/quote]
