Mozilla prepares final resting place for Firefox 2

Upgrade Firefox
About four months after releasing Firefox 3.0, Mozilla is preparing to retire Firefox 2. The company typically offers support for older browsers for about 6 months after a new version is released. So after December, you shouldn't expect security updates or other improvements.

PC World reports that means the final version of Firefox 2 will probably be Firefox 2.0.0.19. The current version is 2.0.0.17, so we can likely expect two more updates before Firefox 2 goes off to that big software depot in the sky. Or you know, sticks around on millions of computers belonging to people who refuse to update to Firefox 3 for one reason or another.

Mozilla says that more than two thirds of Firefox users have already upgraded.
