9.6. Web Browsers

This release of Fedora includes version 3.0 (beta 5) of the popular Firefox web browser. Refer to http://firefox.com/ for more information about Firefox. The nspluginwrapper package is included by default even on 32-bit systems since it separates the plug-ins to run in their own address space, which increases security and reliability of the browser.

9.6.1. NSpluginwrapper

nspluginwrapper is now installed by default, which makes web browser plug-ins run in a separate memory address. This increases browser stability, as plug-in crashes will not affect the web browser itself. As well, this increases security, as Fedora 9 has optional SELinux policies to sandbox plug-ins, to decrease the impact of security issues.
