When is 2.0 > 7.0?

In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, there have been a couple of major releases last week and this week in the web browser world.

Internet Explorer 7.0 was officially released last week, for Windows XP (and Windows Server 2003). (Finally, tabbed browsing and RSS feeds awareness . . . ).

Today Firefox 2.0 will be released. It’s already on the download servers for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. (I’ve linked to en-us for all the above, but if you follow the download server link it is pretty simple to get other localized versions).

Now if only there were a way to push out Firefox as effectively as MS will be able to push out IE 7 under “automatic updates . . . “
