"Use it for Java, not much else."

January 25, 2005  |  By the Otter

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Summary

Firefox 1.0 has the makings of a great browser, but itÂ’s obviously a 1.0 release. While its Java performance blows away Safari 1.x, Firefox is plagued by bugs that will slow you down at every turn.

Filling out forms is great, as long as youÂ’ve never been to a site before; otherwise, itÂ’s a nightmare. Pop-up menus appear on fields you didnÂ’t select, and clicking elsewhere on the page doesnÂ’t dismiss them.

Dragging text to a clipping is likewise nigh impossible: if you pause over the text for even half a second, a contextual menu pops up and won’t go away until you make a selection within it (e.g. “Select All”)—an annoyance at best.

Scrollbars in small windows (e.g. textboxes) do not collapse as normal. If you have set the OS to display both arrows at the top and bottom, the extra arrows should disappear if the scroll area is small enough. Firefox doesn’t seem to get this concept, forcing the user to scroll with the arrow keys—quite annoying, if you’ve got a long list. (Admittedly, many other programs don’t do this correctly, either, but a widespread bug is still a bug.)

A few of the themes I installed donÂ’t work very well, either. I know this isnÂ’t the browserÂ’s fault, but I canÂ’t understand how a theme would make the scrollbar completely disappear.

The bottom line is that Firefox has a phenomenal Java engine without the applet bugs I see in Camino, so IÂ’ll keep it on my computer for that. I also like its RSS support, which neither Camino nor Safari has. But for all intents and purposes, its days may very well be numbered. Safari 2.0 will contain enhanced Java and CSS when itÂ’s released, in a few months, and I donÂ’t see Firefox offering anything beyond that time.

"Internet Explorer should feel threatened"

January 17, 2006  |  By rbilei

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Pros

Firefox is a friendly web browser, just like Internet Explorer. It's easy to make the switch from IE (a wizard will guide you through importing your Favorites, etc.). It's more useful, with its customizable toolbars, tabbed browsing feature and extensions which can add so much more to Firefox, you'd be amazed. Also, it really does load pages more quickly and progressively - you can actually SEE the content loading and display in the windows as it is downloaded.

Cons

Well you should use it with care - too many extensions installed may cause unpredictable results - i.e. crashes, a lot of memory usage, high response time using the tabs and menus etc. Other than that, it's great !

November 15, 2005  |  By slambor

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Pros

Less pop-ups, more secure, more customized interface, tabbed browsing, less resource intensive, not tied to already overbloated OS, planty of plugins available to get the expirience you want out of browser. I use ONLY firefox for developing my sites

"This was the easiest and most beneficial software switch I have ever made."

June 24, 2005  |  By simplemindedted

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Pros

Tabbed browsing allows for easier navigation as well as less usage of system resources.

Built in popup/under control leads to less spyware.

Customizability leads to a more personalized and comfortable browsing experience.

Cons

If was a little tricky getting some of my media plugins configured, but there are several Mozilla forums and message boards that provided all the answers to my questions.

"Awesome!"

June 17, 2005  |  By kristids

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Pros

My favorite feature HAS to be the tabbed-browsing feature! I've always been one to have multiple IE windows open and when one crashes, they all crash. Firefox has NEVER crashed on me. Not YET anyway. ;o)

It's easy to import you favorites, settings, etc., too. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Firefox to everyone!

Cons

The ONLY thing I don't like about Firefox is that not all website display correctly. But 99% do.

"Love It !"

June 13, 2005  |  By Rick P

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Pros

I love the whole design of Firefox.Compared to IE, everything seems to load much quicker and there are so many great features available. I've found no problems with downloads, and haven't yet had any problems accessing sites; went to my bank's site, and everything functioned as it should.

Thoroughly recommended.

Cons

Nothing (yet)!

"Best product around, user friendly & pop-up FREE!"

June 09, 2005  |  By roughleyme

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Pros

I love everything about this product. This was recommended as a web browser by an employee of Comp USA in Pleasanton, CA. He suggested this browser to us when we explained our problems with pop-ups. This information along with Spysweep my husband and I are able to enjoy the internet once again. Thanks for being userfriendly, easy on the eyes - not busy at all, very simple, POP-UP FREE and partnered with Google which is always a good thing! Try it and you'll never go back to any browser again.......

Cons

None.
