"For mac version, this feels a bit better than safari and much better than IE"

February 24, 2005  |  By mashimaro

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Pros

As other reviewers have commented, it is a faster browser as compared to the others. Nice browsing. Interestingly, the interface and the functions are more or less like Safari. The load time and the stability appears to be better than Safari . IE for mac is just incomparable.

Cons

I do like the browser but there are drawbacks. For example, when you print from the browswer with larger data, like from a database, the browswer would freeze reqardless of how many times you restart the browser or the computer. I would have to switch back and forth between Safari and Firefox for printing some webpages. Also, I have to force quit the program a few times but it is not fatal. Good browser overall.

"Great standards-compliant, blazing fast browser w/ a few UI shortcomings"

February 01, 2005  |  By nikolaus.stoltzfus

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Pros

This is an amazing browser and had I not been using Safari for the past two years I would be screaming it's name off of every mountain top. It's lightweight and renders true to the new CSS standards. I love it for testing web pages and for speeding through sites that would normally drag on any other browser, even Safari.

Cons

However, I, like many, find myself switching back and forth between FireFox and Safari for interface reasons. The tab system for Safari is the best of any browser on any system hands down. I feel sorry for Windows users who may never experience what it's like, as Mozilla's and Firefox's tab systems leave a bit to be desired. It would definitely be nice to have a streamlined way to transfer bookmarks b/t Safari and Firefox.

"Better than Safari But Needs Some Improvements"

January 24, 2005

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Summary

I like this browser much better than Safari, but I think some things need to be improved. For one, I wish it was easier to import my Safari bookmarks instead of enabling the Debug menu in Safari, etc etc. The other major thing I find wrong with it is that Java is sluggish and not as stable as it is with Safari. Other than those two things, I LOVE this browser. I won't even compare it to IE since I never use that POS unless I HAVE to. All I can say is bring on Firefox 2.0!

"Awesome and VERY User Friendly Browser! Get Converted!"

January 22, 2005

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Summary

A long time user of Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox is a breath of fresh air! No more of those stupid illegal operation messages... LOVE the browser tabs! I have Safari too since I also converted to the Mac recently. It's good but I miss Mozilla's tabs when I use it. I don't really notice any significant speed differences between the two. I also really like Mozilla Firebird's built in pop up software. The cute fox icon is an added benefit :)

"Superfluous for Mac, but Fine Browser"

January 05, 2005  |  By revdrtomb

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Summary

I use Safari, which works great for the Mac. But I tried this out and it worked great. I don't notice any reason to switch from Safari at this point — perhaps it's a bit faster? — but Windows users should give it a ride.
