If you download Firefox on a linux machine today what you get from their servers is a pretty unfriendly tarball. What are you supposed to do with this? Maybe you know how to extract a tarball. Maybe you even know what of the many files inside it you're actually supposed to run and how to run it? Maybe.
But does everyone else? Do non-developer users have any clue what they're doing with this thing? They experience is awful.
I want to see that change and followed a ticket that tracks just that. What do you think?
I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.
