Firefox 10
Following Mozilla’s recent trend of releasing a major browser update just about every month, Firefox 10.0 has just been released!

Once again, we’re bringing you this news before Mozilla have even updated their Release Notes for Firefox 10.0 to reflect that 10.0 is no longer in beta!

Our browser-based room booking app, MIDAS, is fully compatible with the very latest versions of ALL 5 main browsers, including Firefox 10.0.

We continue to work hard to ensure that whatever new browser versions the five main vendors put out, MIDAS will function correctly in all of them!

In other recent Firefox news…

Mozilla announced earlier this month it’s plans to introduce an “Extended Support Release” edition of Firefox.

According to their blog:

“The ESR version of Firefox is for use by enterprises, public institutions, universities and other organizations that centrally manage their Firefox deployments. Releases of the ESR will occur once a year, providing these organizations with a version of Firefox that receives security updates but does not make changes to the Web or Firefox Add-ons platform”

This idea is still just a proposal, and we here at MIDAS HQ personally hope that this doesn’t happen.

Why? Well, it will create more work for developers and really hold back their creativity and ability to take advantage of new and emerging web technologies. Developers would have to support an additional version of Firefox that could be up to a year out of date!

But let’s wait and see whether Mozilla move forward with their ESR proposals.
