Linux: $ git clone git://
If you're one who likes to update to the latest, buggiest versions of software this isn't for you. This is for older, tried and true browsers!
No reason for Mozilla to keep changing version numbers every 6 weeks and never fixing their current abortion of a browser, but simply replacing it long before they could fix it, with MORE buggy software! Should wait at least 2 years before major version changes, to get the bugs out!
