A new point release of my favorite browser, Firefox, updates it to be a Universal Binary for Mac, which means that it doesn’t have to run in Rosetta emulation (with the accompanying performance penalty). It now can run as a native Intel application.
I’ve been using an “unofficial” nightly build of Firefox (called Deer Park) since I got my Mac Mini. 188.8.131.52 is essentially the official release version of the nightly I’ve been running. No notable new features that I’m aware of, but then, it’s only a point release.
Downloading now. Everything should go smoothly with the upgrade, but I’ll report, of course, if anything goes wrong.
EDIT: Two minutes later. That was painless. All of my profile settings came over perfectly, even cookies. The big difference? Now the dock icon is the official orange and blue Firefox icon, instead of the generic blue globe that they use for unofficial Deer Park builds.
