Firefox 1.1 Delayed and Renamed 1.5

I was quite dissapointed when i read the news that the release of Mozilla Firefox 1.1 will be delayed, since i'm waiting for it because it will include one facility that i have been waiting for, the Software Update facility. It enables users to download patches only rather than the whole application of Firefox which is approximately 5 MB for Windows and 8 MB for Linux platform.

The good news is that new version of Firefox 1.5 will include more facility that it will offer from the previous plans, such as Improved Extension System and Scalable Vector Graphics. The next 1.5 version will be available around September and the beta release will be available around August. Check out their updated roadmap.

Meanwhile, the update for Mozilla is available. It skipped 1.7.9 version since it has the same problem with Firefox 1.0.5, so it is named 1.7.10 now.
