Firefox For Intel Macs

Firefox developer Josh Aas claims: 'We are targeting the official release of Firefox for Intel Mac OS X in late March with the Firefox update"
While an unofficial version of the software is now available on Aas' personal Web site, until Mozilla approves it, the developer recommends those with Intel Macs use Apple's Rosetta technology to run the normal PowerPC Mac OS X version of Firefox.
Rosetta is a transcoding tool that allows programs written for PowerPC to run on Intel machines.
Similar Intel Mac OS X versions of Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client and the third-party Camino browser are available from the same site. Camino utilises Mozilla's Gecko Web rendering engine -- as does Firefox -- and is specifically aimed at full integration with Mac OS X, in the same way as Apple's own Safari browser.
