Hooray! The Mozilla Firefox browser has finally reached 1.0 release! If you're a MacOS X user like me, you're probably perfectly happy using Safari to browse the web... but there's always that occasional site that doesn't seem to work properly, which is why it's good to have Firefox sitting in your Applications folder. It's fast, friendly, does a great job, and may just become your browser of choice.
Of course, if you're a Microsoft Windows victim that's been suffering with Internet Explorer, then Firefox is a dream come true... it's a superior product in every way that will finally display the web the way designers meant for it to be seen, and protect you from spyware and other nastiness the IE invites. Go download it right away.
Happy as I am, I have to admit that every time I read some blog saying "FIREFOX IS OUT," something entirely different comes to mind...
Or maybe this...
Or perhaps this...
Congratulations to the entire Mozilla team for a job well done!
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
You make me smile.
Just returning the favor. 🙂
I have issues with Firefox. I use it on ebay because IE tends to give up after a while and not display the pages at all. But I can’t use it with Movable Type, as the bold/italic/url buttons just don’t show up! Oh, and Firefox chews up far more system resources than IE. When I’m low on memory I have to wait tens of seconds just for the window to come back up.
Hmmm… maybe it’s because I’m using the Mac version, but creating an entry in MT works perfectly. What version of MT are you using? I notice that in the one I am using (3.121) that there are no buttons… just regular old text links to perform bold, italic, etc.
Once I started to use Firefox’s Adblock extension, it was enough to make me swear to never use IE again, except when absolutely necessary in order to render pages correctly. Adblocking is one of the many FF treats.
Such a funny guy you are, you were the final inspiration for starting my own blog (Wil Wheaton was the first), just hope i can eventually be as witty as you are, now i just have to learn to draw
thanks for being there, and giving us all a smile 😀
Did firefox start a fire?
i never had that problem and i use the fox in fire to browse movable type and ebay
Now I know just how far behind I’ve gotten.
The last comment on this blog was just over 2 years ago, and I only just discovered firefox a few months ago. For the most part, working on an older pc, with 2000 pro, I do prefer it over IE.
I do have the distinction of being part of two separate world records, so far, this year. Admittedly, one was by pure happenstance, luck, and precision timing- I had no advance knowledge of “Download Day” at Firefox, and only found out at two (maybe three) minutes before midnight, so that was kinda cool.
The other was seeing “Dark Knight” on opening day at the MN Zoo IMAX (my first time there!). What a perfect way to “pop the IMAX cherry!”
If the FCC has a problem with that, feel free to change it to “lose one’s IMAX virginity!”
And if they don’t, I just said it twice.
