Continuing their new silly version numbering, Mozilla has released Firefox 7.0 (think of it as 4.3 in the real world), once again adding no real new features to the organization’s Web browser. Memory handling is supposedly “drastically improved” for certain use cases, Firefox Sync is faster, the
http:// URL prefix is hidden by default in the address bar, MathML support has been enhanced, and there are a few other minor changes. Walk, don’t run, to download it. Also note that the just-released Firefox 7.0.1 fixes a rare bug that could hide add-ons after the 7.0 update was installed; if you’re not seeing the problem, it’s safely ignored for now.

Hi Adam: Firefox has just been updated to 7.0.1. Check it out.
Yeah, it's a trivially tiny update... nothing wrong with getting it, but it doesn't deserve coverage.
When will they take the debugging code out? It fills up my console log with arcane messages.
Strange. I'm not seeing hardly any messages from Firefox.
Is (are) there any compelling reason to upgrade from version 5?
The only reason would be to get the security fixes. None of the "features" are really even noticeable.
