The Temptation of Firefox 2

Hot on the heels of Microsoft, Mozilla has released their latest update in the form of Firefox 2.
Although it won't show up as any kind of high-priority automatic update, it's likely that many users will want to upgrade to take advantage of its new UI and security features. However, we all thought it would prudent to remind you that deploying Firefox 2 to any Oracle production environment is not recommended until after certification has been completed.
Rest assured, though, we do have plans to certify Firefox 2 with E-Business Suite 11i and 12, and you'll find out about here as soon as that's done.
In the meantime, if you'd like to use Firefox 2 for any other browsing you need to do, you can still use my earlier article as a guideline for installing versions 1.5 and 2.0 side-by-side.
