32154581 story Firefox 12 Released — Introduces Silent, Chrome-like Updater 411 Posted by Soulskill on Tuesday April 24, 2012 @02:41PM from the grandma-will-never-know-the-difference dept. MrSeb writes "Firefox 12 has been officially released, with only one major new feature: A silent, background updater. Now you will have to approve the Firefox Software Updater when you first install Firefox, but after that the browser will update silently — just like Chrome. In other news, the Find feature now reliably centers the page on any matches — hooray!" Here are the release notes, the list of bug fixes, and the download page.
