Firefox’s Lock Icon is Back
I’m a little late with this blog item. Maybe it was because it was a great summer or maybe it’s because I don’t use Firefox or maybe it’s because …
Firefox 14.0 released in June 2012 and the SSL lock symbol is back. I wrote a blog last year where the beta of Firefox 4.0 did not have the lock symbol. I wasn’t very happy with the old change, as so many people promote security on the Web with the lock icon. Just try Googling images for SSL lock.
Regardless, the lock is back now and it looks great. Also, I don’t mean to make it sound like it took them 10 Firefox versions to make the change. Well, actually, it did take 10 editions, it’s just the editions must be really small as they came out in less than a year and a half.
