"Some features are advanced, but undoubtedly the safest, most versatile browser!"

July 19, 2005  |  By JHann

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2

Pros

Firefox has:

Tabbed browsing

Built-in protection from adware, spyware, and viruses

Customize with stunning themes and brilliant extensions

Invaluable extensions for web development

Fast page searching (just use "/" key!)

Fast web search on hundreds of sites

Cons

Optimizing Firefox up for very slow (dial-up) or very fast broadband connections could be simpler. Other awesome features are not very easy to discover. Be sure to go to Firefox Central at mozilla.org for help on maximizing your web experience with Firefox.

"firefox rules!"

July 18, 2005  |  By xenlab

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2

Pros

we need more products that support open standards and raise the bar for all software developers. mozilla have certainly done this with firefox. there is no other browser that I recommend to family and friends - regardless of their platform.

Cons

just get it! there is nothing i can critique that an extension (freely downloaded from various mozilla / firefox community sites) can't fix.

"Simply the best browser ever"

July 15, 2005  |  By acarlos1000

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2

Pros

Small (only 4.6MB) fast, extensible, safer, easier to use. FX is simply the best browser I've ever used. Since I started use it (since version 0.8) I never used IE again.

Cons

Update process still not that good.

"Firefox as an alternative browser"

July 08, 2005  |  By virtualseeds

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2

Pros

I love the ability to open up an entire favorites folder with one click and having all sites open up as tabs and ready for accessing. Very cool for work as I need to be able to move between sites to complete a project.

Cons

I don't care for the all inclusive download popup window but it's a minor issue. Sites that have active X or Scrippy sites won't work on Firefox so have to use IE for those. Still overall, this is a great browser.

"Just perfect"

July 07, 2005  |  By firefox lover

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2

Pros

- fast

- secured

- very intuitive (except for the profile manager)

- FOLLOWS W3C STANDARDS. As a web developer I love that. FF helped me to use the right standards and correct the mistakes I did by using this f... IE.

Cons

The profile manager is a little bit painful to get.

"Quick, Simple and Safer then most browsers. A real alternative!"

July 03, 2005  |  By Silicon Syko

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2

Pros

The layout is similar to MS Internet Explorer, and so doesnt take long to change over. Supports themes, extensions and the usual plugins. Also !I! find it reduces spyware downloaded. oh and dnt forget u can have multiple pages open in 1 window (tabs)!

Cons

Doesnt support all the new fancy features of websites such as when a webpage changes your scrollbar color, but hay who cares u can just put your own theme on it

"Shocking"

July 02, 2005  |  By SumitDV

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2

Pros

Amazing. It works, built in pop-up blockers keep those nasty boogers off my screen. tabs let u only have one mozilla open so it saves on ram, ram usage is like nothing compared to IE's ram usage. i wouldnt think this would be good but wow, i cant believe i have been missing this. IE + google toolbar + yahoo toolbar didnt block all my pop-ups but mozilla does. i love it. Much safer and stable the IE.

Cons

only thing i hate about this program can't really be blamed on the program. u cant view yahoo launch player and some certain sites are too close to M$. they wont even let u get to the site, the screen u get will say, im sorry we detected u aren't using IE, this page is best viewed with IE. I HATE M$

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2

Pros

It's fast, lean and free. Its security features by far surpass Internet Explorer. I would recommend it to anybody!

Cons

Honestly, I can't think of anything that would make me prefer Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox.
