Intel-based Macs to get Firefox in March

Posted on Tuesday, Jan 17 2006 @ 04:20 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Mozilla announced it will launch a version of Firefox capable of running on Apple's x86 Mac OS X in March.
Demand for the browser on Apple's new CPU platform is expected to rocket as the PC vendor last week started selling the first Macs based on CPUs from Intel. Previously Apple had used IBM's PowerPC chips.

While an unofficial version of the software is now available on Aas' personal Web site, until Mozilla approves it, the developer recommends those with Intel Macs use Apple's Rosetta technology to run the normal PowerPC Mac OS X version of Firefox.
