Weekend Update

It's important to keep your computer updated with the latest security fixes and patches. If you're using a Windows computer, go to the Start menu and select Windows Update. Let Windows scan your rig, then click the Express button. After a few minutes you'll see a list of updates. Click the Install Updates button.

Apple issued a security update today. You can get it by running Software Update, which can be found in the System Preferences. You'll need to restart after installing.

There's also a new version of Firefox, 1.0.7. If you're daring, you can try the Beta Firefox, 1.5 Beta 1. I'm using it and it's screamingly fast. According to Mozilla, here's what new:

* Automated update to streamline product upgrades.
* Faster browser navigation.
* Drag and drop for browser tabs.
* Improvements to popup blocking.
* Clear Private Data feature.
* added to search engine list.
* Descriptive error pages, redesigned options menu, and RSS discovery.
* Better accessibility support.
* Report a broken Web site wizard.
* Better support for Mac OS X.
