"Mozilla's open source Firefox Web browser is used today by over
6 million Apple Mac users. To date, Mozilla has supported Mac OS X
10.4, 10.5 and 10.6 for both Firefox 3.5 and for the recently
released Firefox 3.6, though not all three Mac OS versions are
likely to be supported under Firefox's next major release.
""Mac OS X 10.4 was released in April of 2005 and a lot has
changed since then," Mozilla developer Josh Aas wrote in a Mozilla
mailing list posting. "We would like to take advantage of more
modern technologies on Mac OS X, and 10.4 support has been a
hindrance. Where we can work around supporting 10.4, doing so
consumes valuable time and effort."
