On the heels of yesterday's Firefox for Android update, Mozilla has released Firefox 17 for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The popular browser has seen heightened competition as of late from Google's Chrome browser and the other browsers available, such as Opera and Internet Explorer 10.

The latest version comes just a month after Firefox 16, which was released back in October. Mozilla has increased the frequency of updates, likely to match that of Chrome, and Firefox is now rolling out updates, bug fixes, and improvements every six weeks or so, a similar schedule to that of Chrome.

Version 17 of Firefox removes support for Mac OS X 10.5. This could be a bit of a problem for some Mac users as nearly 10 percent of Macs are still running the old operating system. They'll still be stuck with the old version of the browser, but this isn't too big of a deal because version 16 is a solid Firefox version.

Head on over to Firefox.com and pick up the latest version of the browser, which should be showing up online sometime today. If you're already a user of Firefox, you'll get the update automatically.
