Can We Ship Yet? Firefox 4 Bug Countdown

Filed under
Moz/FF

I can’t quite remember that we have been so excited about any other bug list ever. Mozilla is getting very creative in keeping the focus on eliminating every single hard- blocking bug from the Firefox 4 code and has, to our knowledge, posted the first-ever bug countdown for a significant public software. Can we ship yet?

‘No’ is the answer at the time of this writing. The count stands at 14, down from 15 earlier in the day and the same as yesterday. We have somewhat lost track of the actual bug count, as the bug trend chart indicates 18 hard- blocking bugs and beta bugs and 115 soft-blockers. Mozilla’s Asa Dotzler tweeted earlier today that only 7 bugs with “unwritten patches” are left. There is a notable push at Mozilla to get Firefox 4 out the door, but there seems to be no clear indication when that will be.

Pro tip: Find tons of open-source Android software with F-Droid

If you're looking for truly open-source software for the Android platform, you don't have to do a ton of searching or check through licenses from within the Google Play Store. All you have to do is download a simple tool called F-Droid. With this tool, you can download and install apps (from quite a large listing) as easily as you can from the Google Play Store. You won't, however, find F-Droid in the Google Play Store. Instead, you have to download the .apk file and install it manually. Once it's installed, the rest is just a matter of searching for an app and tapping to install. Read more
