David Walsh Blog – WebSocket Update

Bug 616733 in Mozilla bug tracker details Mozilla’s plans to disable WebSocket in Firefox 4, enabled only by updating a pref setting. A Geolocation-style Firefox prompt was proposed but did not gain support. The reason for disabling WebSocket is a Google report detailing security issues with the current WebSocket protocol. That report is available here. Apple was recently known to be considering disabling WebSocket in Safari as well.
