Firefox 1.0.2

It’s been released, and I think Marc Orchant over at the office weblog hits the nail right on the head when it comes to non-techie home users. (think your mom, or grandparents)Firefox is not going to be the market leader as long as installing an update is this complicated! Those types of end-users are going to do the automatic update, then they’re going to see the double entry of Firefox in their Add/Remove programs months from now, uninstall one, and end up with none.

Then they’ll go back to using IE, because you never have to do the “uninstall/reinstall the updated version” dance. Please Firefox developers, fix this!
