Firefox 1.0.2

A new release of Firefox is available now. Firefox 1.0.2 contains several security fixes over the 1.0 version, most recently a potential GIF parsing flaw that hasn’t been exploited yet, but potentially could be. Being Open Source means that the code is viewed by many developers and errors tend to be found before they are exploited. Mozilla also runs a $500 bug bounty where they offer money to people that find flaws in the code.
