Editors' Review

The final release of Mozilla Firefox offers enough features to make you rethink Internet Explorer. You can easily create toolbars by dragging and dropping icons. Live Bookmarks turn RSS feeds into something that acts like a bookmarks folder. You can type Google search queries right into the address bar or use the built-in search box. The program displays the page source in a new window, using indents and color-coded tags like an HTML editor. You can view your bookmarks or history in the Sidebar area, which lets you quickly revisit your favorite sites. Though the browser hides its advanced settings, you can still build modules using XML, CSS, JavaScript, and even C . The program includes such tools as a JavaScript debugger and a DOM viewer.

At 55MB for 25 windows, the browser uses fewer resources than Internet Explorer but more than Opera. The built-in pop-up blocker works better than Opera's, IE's, and those of most paid standalone utilities. However, the download manager is still underdeveloped. Though the final release version vastly improves stability, we noticed occasional reluctance to maximize in response to Alt Tab commands. People who want more security than IE provides should look at Mozilla Firefox.

"Amazing!"

November 29, 2005  |  By drumpat01

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6

Pros

This is the best browser out there for PC or even for Mac. With all the extensions and themes to choose from no other browser even comes close to what Firefox can offer.

Cons

I would like to see some of the extensions come standard. Like the tabbed browsing options and Tab X. I would also like to see the number of new RSS feeds in the bar instead of having to pull open the menu and look to see which ones I haven't seen yet.

Pros

From the beggining, I could see it was faster and safer with CERO spam! I cant go back to IE...I just cant! I totally would encourage anybody to at least test it for a while.

"Move over, Safari"

November 21, 2005  |  By theevanshow

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6

Pros

Apple's Safari was my browser of choice until quite recently while using Mac OS X. I've given Firefox another go and the following are ture: RSS handling is different, but elegantly done. I love the live bookmarks. The security features are head and shoulders above as well, specifically in the content blocking area. Extensible.

Cons

UI still needs some polishing. Could use some optimizations for pipelining and the like out of the box.

"The best tool ever"

November 20, 2005  |  By Khamul54

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6

Pros

After using Inernet Explorer it is a relief to come over to Firefox. Not only is there very little adware/malware that can get past Firefox, but it also have many very useful functions and extensions. Especially tabs and adblock are good - no longer do I have twenty IE windows open at the same time!

Cons

Some lazy web-developers design to Internet Explorer, which means that their sites do not follow the official Internet standards - and this, in turn, means that Firefox cannot show them properly. But the problem is not as widespread as it has been, IMO.
