    Mozilla Foundation officials have reconfirmed that the next version of the browser will go straight for 1.5.

    So far, everybody has been expecting Firefox 1.1, but Mozilla Foundation considered that the there are too many changes brought to the current version, Firefox 1.0.6, and therefore they’ve decided to skip the rest of the versions and release Firefox 1.5.

    Initially, Firefox 1.5 was announced for August, but now, the new browser is expected to reach beta in this year’s September, which will be followed by the final version somewhere towards the end of 2005.

    It depends on what you like. I personally have issues with Firefox because it doesn't recognize some module links the way it should, mouse scrolling along a page sometimes doesn't work if your using a CMS's WYSIWYG, slower image loading on re-visited sites and some module stretching beyond locked pixel width confines.

    Personally, I use Firefox because it never hangs up on a download for me where IE does nearly 50% of the time and for security reasons. I know that Firefox will become more hacked as it grows, but for now I have one foot on the bandwagon.

    No Paul, I am not a Firefox lover.
