Firefox 3 to Drop Older OS Support

By Deane Barker on December 12, 2006

Firefox 3 to drop support for older Windows and Mac X 10.2: I think this is wise. There comes a point when you have to move upward and onward.

Currently Firefox 3 is scheduled to be officially released in May 2007. When Firefox 3 is finally released it is expected to no longer support older versions of Microsoft Windows including Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows ME. Support for Apple’s Mac OS X 10.2 will also be dropped. For the Mac platform, Mozilla is recommending users run Firefox using OS X 10.3.9 or higher.
