LXer: Iceweasel/Firefox 4 in Debian Squeeze - I make the leap

Published at LXer:

I contend that it's not necessary nor even desirable to upgrade an entire Linux distribution or BSD installation just to get some shiny newness like Firefox 4. It's still a "selling" point for free operating systems: "Upgrade and you'll get the new Firefox/OpenOffice/Thunderbird, etc." But what if you don't want to upgrade every last package just to get the latest web browser?
