Hot on the heels of the release of Ubuntu 16.04, Mozilla has announced it will start distributing copies of its Firefox web browser using Ubuntu's new snap package format. In this way, Mozilla hopes to get new copies of Firefox to Ubuntu users directly, without needing to wait for new features or security fixes to be vetted and uploaded to Ubuntu's software repositories. "With the snap format, new features can be released to users of older OS versions too. Later this year, we will offer Firefox in snap format making it easier to push the browser directly to users rather than relying on an intermediary to accept updates before they reach users."
