We all know Firefox is a great browser and that Thunderbird is a great e-Mail and chat client, right, and the Stable build of that software is pretty good as well, but what if you want the bleeding-edge versions of the software? Well, getting it in Windows is easy, just download the installer, uninstall the Stable build, and install the Nightly build for Firefox, and the Daily build for Thunderbird, as for Aurora and Earlybird, they're essentially a more stable Nightly and Daily.

Well, Ubuntu requires getting in the CLI and getting your hands dirty, and here's how to get Nightly and Daily on your Ubuntu setup.

Step 1: Add the Mozilla Daily PPA.
