    Default Firefox 5 is out? From Filehippo?

    Did anyone else notice that Firefox 5 is out, as seen on FileHippo?

    mozilla.com still offers FF4.01, so I guess that filehippo is offering a beta, nightly or similar pre-release version.
    Personally, I would not consider filehippo as reliable software source.

    From the official website, you can even get Mozilla 6.0

    It is supposed to be out officially on June 21 .. that's in a few hours I guess.. and I did see report' around that the final version is indeed out already since the last few days... though there are always the possibility of last minute tweaks until it is officially made official! Cheers...

    And btw, FileHippo IS a reliable software source, FYI

    If you really want the latest stuff from mozilla.org, then check their FTP server regularily: ftp.mozilla.org

    No, it most certainly is the final. Just because they haven't updated the website, doesn't mean it isn't technically "out" via the ftp server.

    Well, it reduced my average memory consumption by 2/3, which was starting to bother me since 4. Back almost back to my old 3.5 levels.
