The current version RHEL 5 has Firefox 1.5 ... CentOS 5 will as well.

IF 1.5 stays or goes in CentOS 5 is of course totally dependent on what
upstream does.  Whether it gets upgraded to 2.x or 3.x or stays at
1.5 .. it will get updates for security until 2014 when CentOS 5 is
retired. (OR 2012 for CentOS-4).

CentOS-4 has moved from Mozilla to seamonkey and from CentOS 1.0.x to
1.5.x ... so, the technology will be updated and safe, regardless of the
version released.  It may not be latest and greatest, however.
