9.6. Web Browsers

This release of Fedora includes version 3.0 (beta 5) of the popular Firefox web browser. Refer to 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.
For information about Firefox in Fedora, refer to this feature page:

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.
