Firefox 1.0.4 Released

After a major security vulnerability was discovered earlier this week, Firefox developers put their collective nose to the grindstone (or maybe their hand to the pizza box? mouth the beer keg?) and came up with a new version. Download and install it today!

I've noticed a lot of visitors to my blog use older versions of Firefox, and while the functionality is much the same this new version is by far the most secure. Anybody who is careful about the security of their computer should get this (or, for those who are ultra-careful, I bet you're already using Firefox 1.0.4 right now).

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
