New version of Firefox out now. Most of you will know what this is but for the ones that don't, it is a replacement for IE and generally regarded as a much better option.

Firefox 1.0.4 is a security update that is part of our ongoing program to provide a safe Internet experience for our customers. We recommend that all users upgrade to this latest version.

Here's what's new in Firefox 1.0.4:

* Several security fixes.

MFSA 2005-44 Privilege escalation via non-DOM property overrides
MFSA 2005-43 "Wrapped" javascript: urls bypass security checks
MFSA 2005-42 Code execution via javascript: IconURL


* Fix to DHTML errors encountered at some web sites. For web developers, learn more.

Still better than IE though, not as popular so not quite as big a target
