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.

    "The best Web browser ever"

    September 05, 2014   |   By LLI-JBS

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 32.0

    Pros

    - It's the fastest browser I've ever used.
    - It has user-friendly, clean and intuitive user interface.
    - It values your privacy (Mozilla is non-profit and doesn't make money with your personal data).
    - It's safe and has many security features (e.g. blocking outdated plugins).
    - It's customizable and you can enhance it with many extensions.
    - Sync is great, especially the latest version with Firefox accounts.

    Cons

    - It's very RAM-heavy. If you have slow computer, don't use it.
    - The new version copies Chrome. If we wanted Chrome, we would use it!

    Summary

    If you also don't like the new Chrome-like UI, install Classic Theme Restorer and you'll get the old Firefox theme back. Otherwise, it's the best browser ever!
