Microsoft’s browser has release a new version of Firefox. Even though Firefox 4 was released in March, today marks the release of Firefox 5. This appears to be Microsoft’s reply to Google’s release of their updated version of Chrome.

Firefox will also be in mobile phones, but only with Android. Currently there is no option to download it on the iPhone or Apple products. “The legal terms of the AppStore will not accept our software. It grieves us deeply because we are increasingly demanding. “
