Mac Browsers: Firefox, TenFourFox, AuroraFox, SeaMonkey updates
Firefox isn’t just Firefox anymore, at least since Mozilla officially ended support for legacy PowerPC Macs. That said, a single minor Firefox update not only spawns Thunderbird and SeaMonkey patches, we also get PPC variants those apps — come inside for Mac browser news.
Fundamentally, Firefox 16.0.2 (release notes) is all about security fixes, critical ones at that. Unsurprisingly, a fresh release of the PPC-only TenFourFox 10.0.10 (release notes) also contains “urgent” security fixes, as well as all recent ESR fixes.
Although Netscape Navigator is but a memory, Mozilla keeps the all-in-one web client flame burning with SeaMonkey 2.13.2. As you might have guessed, this update contains security fixes plus patches for contact and local IMAP mail file issues.
Lastly, for the (modern) PowerMac user wanting to stay on the bleeding edge (somewhere way out there in left field) of Mac browser development, AuroraFox 18 releases continue apace (Mac OS X 10.5.x only).
