Firefox 15 Due Out Tomorrow, Features Silent Updates
Mozilla developer Ehsan Akhgari has announced in his blog that Firefox 15 is to be released tomorrow. Besides a slew of new features implemented in this release, it's headline feature will be silent updates. These will remove the update progress dialog box that appears when Firefox is being updated and make the whole process transparent and more convenient for the user.
This feature allows Firefox to download the update in the background, apply it alongside with the existing installation, and keep the updated version around so that it can quickly switch to it the next time that the browser starts up. This effectively eliminates the update progress dialog that appears when you start Firefox after it has downloaded an update.
