Mozilla Firefox 1.0 product reviews

The wait is over.

Firefox 1.0 empowers you to browse faster, more safely and more efficiently than with any other browser. Join more than 20 million others and make the switch today - Firefox imports your Favorites, settings and other information, so you have nothing to lose.

Why Use Firefox?

"Beware of spyware. If you can, use the Firefox browser." - USA Today

"Better than Internet Explorer by leaps and bounds." - FORBES

Popup Blocking
Stop annoying popup ads in their tracks with Firefox's built in popup blocker.

Tabbed Browsing
View more than one web page in a single window with this time saving feature. Open links in the background so that they're ready for viewing when you're ready to read them. Find out more...

Privacy and Security
Built with your security in mind, Firefox keeps your computer safe from malicious spyware by not loading harmful ActiveX controls. A comprehensive set of privacy tools keep your online activity your business.

Smarter Search
Google Search is built right into the toolbar, and there is a plethora of other search tools including Smart Keywords (type "dict " in the Location bar), and the new Find bar (which finds text as you type without covering up anything).

Live Bookmarks
RSS integration lets you read the latest news headlines and read updates to your favorite sites that are syndicated. Find out more...

Hassle-Free Downloading
Files you download are automatically saved to your Desktop so they're easy to find. Fewer prompts mean files download quicker.

Fits Like a Glove
Simple and intuitive, yet fully featured, Firefox has all the functions you're used to - Bookmarks, History, Full Screen, Text Zooming to make pages with small text easier to read, etc.

S, M, L or XL-It's Your Choice
Firefox is the most customizable browser on the planet. Customize your toolbars to add additional buttons, install new Extensions that add new features, add new Themes to browse with style, and use the adaptive search system to allow you to search an infinite number of engines. Firefox is as big or small as you want.

Setup's a Snap
At only 4.7MB (Windows), Firefox takes just a few minutes to download over a slow connection and seconds over a fast connection. The installer gets you set up quickly, and the new Easy Transition system imports all of your settings - Favorites, passwords and other data from Internet Explorer and other browsers - so you can start surfing right away.

A Developer's Best Friend
Firefox comes with a standard set of developer tools including a powerful JavaScript and CSS error/warning console, and an optional Document Inspector that gives detailed insight about your pages.

What can I say? When I first started surfing the net my browser I first used was good 'ol Netscape Navigator 3.0 (as supplied by XTRA at the time I joined) Well I used that as well as the next version they released, then I switched to IE, not by choice mind you, I still prefered Netscape but it just ran too damn slow for me, and unfortunately IE was the quicker of the two. I have been using IE since purely for the fact it's there already. Then I came across this mention of a new browser and I thought what the hell let's give it a try.

Well I tried it and now I will not use any other. It has all the features of IE and a couple more, like open windows in tabs as well as windows. Google as the default search engine, a builtin download manager and best of all it imports all your favourites and settings from IE at installation. Best of all it loads just as fast.

My advise to you if you use IE but want more then download FIrefox from Mozilla.org you won't regret it.
