Editors' Review

+

As more users continue to abandon Internet Explorer, Mozilla's popular Firefox gains traction in the browser space. Version 1.5 of Firefox offers a few notable features, foremost of which is the ability to reorder tabs by dragging and dropping them. You'll also find a tool that lets you quickly clean up your surfing history with two clicks of the mouse or a hot-key combo. The latest iteration of the browser seems more responsive than it has in the past and also is more efficient; with 10 windows open, Firefox consumed slightly less RAM than either IE or Opera.

If you're new to Firefox entirely, you'll appreciate the other features, including the RSS feeds, the JavaScript debugger, the basic download manager, and the ability to search several popular sites (such as Google) directly from the address bar. You can easily create toolbars by dragging and dropping icons. More technically minded users will appreciate that Firefox displays the page source in a new window, using indents and color-coded tags like an HTML editor. The built-in pop-up blocker is still extremely effective, and Firefox's reuptation for tight security is still well deserved. Anyone who's tired of IE will find more than one reason to like this free alternative.

"Rediscover the Web"

July 27, 2006  |  By eternal_blue

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.4

Pros

Where to begin? Firefox's tabbed browsing is a feature that I can't live without. Less pop-ups, less spyware, and it is free! Mozilla Firefox is easily the best web browser, hands down.

"not as good as everybody makes it sound"

July 26, 2006  |  By young but wise

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.4

Pros

for staters when i opened it i could see more of the web page than in IE6, then i realised that i've been using yahoo toolbar to get tab browsing. their tab browsing is pretty good the tabs laod faster that yahoo toolbars, but i did not see much of a difference, fire fox is pretty fast a bit faster than IE6, i like that they gave you options on the icons and junk. rss feed i did not even bother

Cons

again for starters the home, refresh, and stop buttons look ugly specialy the home button. it may be fast but takes a while to show up after clicking it on the on the desktop or quick access. this program also tends to run slowly when there are multiple programes same goes for multiple tabs. takes a long time to show pages with lots of pictures, same goes for flash animation. worst of all fredom, my antivirus and spyware software tend to make a schedulled scan, IE6 runs slowly but firefox tend to run twice as slow and it's frustrating. this program may be pretty fast but when it gets slow i mean it really gets slow. another thing, i tend to watch videos online but those websites, like msn video,requires IE 5 or hire and the newest ones tend not to have capibility with firefox YET!!!!!!!! only IE and i hate to wait when some thing is right in front of your face and you cant get it. the new tab,print,faverates aka bookmarks,history, and mail buttom, should have been their by default took me a week to find then. security dont know i never had issues with that

firefox is not a bad browser but it's not that good either i think i'll stick to IE for now

"Best Browser Available!"

July 24, 2006  |  By me1458

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.4

Pros

Firefox has so many great features! Some of my favorites are tabbed browsing, the ability to add one of many extentions, the clear interface, and the small download size. Even though IE 7 (Beta) seems to have solved many of the IE problems, I'm still sticking with Firefox.
