Too Cool for Internet Explorer

Just thought you'd wanna know

Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2 is now available for download. Among other features, Firefox 1.0.2 addresses a problem concerning GIF images. Simply put, a carefully crafted GIF file could execute malicious code when viewed in older versions. (Gee, I never thought that was possible. Then again, there was the case of encrypted messages in JPEGs. Oh well) The increasing popularity of Firefox has made it a probable target for some future attacks.

More informtion on Firefox 1.0.2 and downloads can be found at the Mozilla website.

Whoa. The things we learn.

I love my Firefox. It's very customizable and sleek. :) I've already updated it a few weeks back.
