Mozilla will start Firefox silent updates in June

Mozilla yesterday reiterated that it’s still working on silent updates for Firefox, and said it should have the Chrome-like service in place by early June. In a sweeping summary of 2011’s accomplishments and an outline of plans for 2012, Robert Nyman, a Mozilla technical evangelist, listed silent updates as one the projects the company will finish this year. “Updates will now be downloaded and installed silently in the background,” wrote Nyman in a Wednesday post to the Hacks Mozilla blog. “Silent updates are currently planned to land in Firefox 13.”

Mozilla unloads a Firefox upgrade every six weeks — it launched Firefox 11 just two days ago — and has Firefox 13’s release on the calendar for June 5, 2012.
