    Firefox 3.5- Shiretoko?

    I need some clarification........ Is Shiretoko (available in the ubuntu 9.04 repos) a beta version of firefox 3.5?

    Will the final release of Firefox 3.5 become availble in the ubuntu repos? And if so when is this likely to happen?

    Finally..... If firefox 3.5 becomes available through the ubuntu repos will Shiretoko automatically update or will it have to be replaced manualy?

    Hopefully these questions are straight to the point and easy to clarify.

    Cheers.

    Thanks,

    Nice and easy to understand answer. I will continue using Shiretoko, just tried Opera and all I can say is Uuuurgggggg!!!! Perhaps it works well elsewhere but for me it is slow, slow, slow!

    I just installed 3.5 by enabling the proposes repos in software sources. Most addons are not compatible yet nor is my current theme. It does seem a bit faster than 3.0.11.

    For info on proposed repo see here.

    "there is a higher chance of defective updates in this repository"

    The beta 4 is in the main repo's now. Has been for ages.

    Installing it does not mess with current firefox install.
