Firefox 1.0.1 released

A nice surprise this morning a new version of Firefox, the browser we all love.

It’s nice to see that the main reason for the release is to fix the IDN bug (which didn’t affect IE – because it doesn’t support IDN without a 3rd party extension.). Firefox now displays the punycode representation of the domain name by default like so:

The is the option to display the Unicode representation if you want instead of the puny code to revert to the old behaviour. It is also nice to see that the disable IDN option now works successfully as well!
