Editors' Review

Mozilla Firefox for Mac is a Web browsing alternative that offers a full range of features to let you peruse your favorite sites with ease. This program offers all of the functionality you'd expect from a Web browser through a clean and familiar interface.

Pros

Site optimization: If you're looking for an alternative to Safari on your Mac, you may find that some sites load more quickly and function better through Firefox. Especially if you have trouble with certain sites you visit a lot in Safari or another browser, it may be worth it to try out Firefox to see if it can run them more smoothly.

Tiled history: When you open a new tab in Firefox, you'll see a tiled display of the sites you've visited lately or most often, so you can get back to your favorites with ease. Or if you want to visit a site that's not displayed, you can use the search bar located in the upper right-hand corner of the interface.

Cons

Exclusive search box: While the box for URL entry also says you can enter a search term, we were unable to get any real search results in this way. Using the designated search box seems to be the only option for completing a keyword search. This does not have to be a significant drawback except that the program seems to indicate it should work the other way as well.

Poor tile loading: The tiled screen with recent pages visited didn't load terribly thoroughly, and most tiles didn't contain images of the actual sites they described. They also didn't always take us to where we were trying to go.

Bottom Line

Firefox for Mac is a good option to try if you have trouble accessing certain sites through Safari or other browsers. However, because of the issues we experienced during testing, we still prefer Safari or Chrome for everyday surfing on the Mac.
