Firefox 3.6 is here!

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Yeah, I know; about as exciting as another iTunes update, right? Hear me out, though, because the new version of Mozilla’s browsing beauty has some pretty neat customization and security features this time around.

Apart from being faster (which is the whole point of an update in my opinion), Firefox now offers protection from out-of-date plug-ins which can leave your computer vulnerable to attack. Don’t worry; when an update to the problematic plug-in is released Firefox will let you know.

There’s also the matter of Personas, which give your browser a whole new look! Just by going to you can browse a library and apply any of over 30,000 designs turning your interface from boring old this:


To super awesome this:


Oh, and there’s no complicated install procedure – just mouse-over on a design and decide whether you like it or not. If you do, click “Wear it!”. Should you want to uninstall a persona, go to Tools>Options, and under the General tab, click “Manage Add-ons…” From here, click Themes and select “Default” to go back to the way things were. You can also uninstall other previously downloaded personas from this window.

Have fun getting personalized, and head over to for more information on Version 3.6 of Firefox!
