Firefox 3.6.4 Includes Crash Protection…. For Everyone But Mac Users

Are you sick of plug-ins like Flash crashing your browser? If so, you should update to Firefox 3.6.4 ASAP as that includes a new feature called “Crash Protection” which prevents Flash, Silverlight, and Quicktime crashes from bringing down your entire browser (although the only browser crashes that I ever experience are Flash related). But, Mac users who according to “The Steve” need this sort of protection because Flash sucks need not apply. Here’s what the Mozilla Blog had to say about that:

At this time Firefox offers crash protection for Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime and Microsoft Silverlight on Windows and Linux computers. Support for other plugins and operating systems will become available in a future Firefox release.

Charming. That means that all that Mac users get are bug fixes and security fixes. That’s not a bad thing. But if you want crash protection, I guess you’ll have to use Google Chrome.

  1. I am amazed that Linux got it before the Mac. Usually we are last.
