After yesterday’s news about the fake Firefox update that is out there in the wild, I thought it might be a good time to go over how you can get your plugins updated. Thankfully, Mozilla has made this really simple with the Plugin Check part of their website.
A somewhat questionable Firefox addition, FireNes promises to deliver you more than 2,500 Nintendo games in your browser. After doing some research, it appears this addon is fetching games from another online Java powered NES emulator. Controls are limited to arrow keys, Enter, Ctrl, Z and X – but hey what do you expect?
They are just Nintendo games after all.
Enjoy it while it last, cause I am sure it may not last for long. Ohh and when Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom police come knocking at your door don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Of course it will take a while to train, as far as allowing the good Web sites you visit to run the code they need to run, but if you want to be extra safe I would recommend at least trying this option out.
