Even with NoScript plugin installed, users were still vulnerable. Fortunately, May 27th update fixes that.

By | May 18, 2010 | 21 Comments

Chrome to Replace Firefox in Ubuntu?If UberGizmo rumor is true, Canonical, a company behind Ubuntu is planning to ditch Firefox web browser in favor of Google Chrome (or Chromium).

In fact, Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10 should be the very first version to do that.

How this version differs from the desktop release? It has a new interface, designed for restricted size machines that features a single menu bar design (more about it here).
