Editors' Review

Read CNET senior editor Rob Vamosi's extended review of Firefox 2, or watch a video tour of the new features.

Even though Internet Explorer dominates the Web browser market, you might wonder why if you spend some time with Mozilla Firefox. This light and nimble Web wonder brought tabbed browsing into the mainstream (IE7 recently jumped on the bandwagon) and offers countless ways to customize it through extensions and themes. Drag-and-drop tabs with individual close buttons help keep your content organized the way you like, and you can further streamline your browsing through the use of extensive hot keys. You'll find all of the regular options and features required for surfing the Web in the default setup, but the groundbreaking features come with the thousands of third-party extensions. Likewise, if you don't like the look of the default interface, there are hundreds of slick themes to use, though many weren't updated for version 2 at its release.

Firefox is the perfect browser for those involved with Web design and coding. A JavaScript debugger comes standard, and Firefox displays the page-source code in a new window, using indents and color-coded tags similar to an HTML editor. The built-in pop-up blocker works great for most sites, and new antiphishing protections and enhanced security for extensions are in the version 2 release. Anyone looking for a full-featured browser with seemingly endless ways to customize should download this powerhouse.

"Simply the best"

May 29, 2007  |  By MetalHellssAngel

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.3

Pros

What more can I say that hasn't already been said. I used myie2 and than when they changed Maxthon I used that and I alway's thought nothing could tear me away from it, but then I tried firefox, and I have been in love with it ever since. I love how higly customizable it and the way you can seriously make it "your" browser. If your looking for a new browser then look no further!

Cons

I couldn't tell you any, I'v not seen any so far.

"Love it"

May 29, 2007  |  By happygirlt

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.3

Pros

I love this one. You don't get the problems like you have with IE. It is easier to access the programs you want without having to open a whole new browser window.

"The best browser by miles"

May 28, 2007  |  By Saturnreturn04

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.3

Pros

By far the most easy to use, straightforward, attractive, versatile, speedy, secure browser there is. Microsoft ought to weep with the feeble excuse for a browser that is IE7 which took them nearly 6 years to make, while the boys at mozilla keep making the best products on the market for free and in such a small space of time. If you've only just discovered that internet explorer wasn't the only way to surf the internet, look no further than firefox, it's got everything every other browser has got, and loads loads more.

Cons

No complaints

"Great browser"

May 27, 2007  |  By Tektonics

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.3

Pros

This version is stable and still has good speed and a good interface. It is very customizable with tons of add-ons and themes to choose from.

Cons

It can be a little bit of a system resource hog at times. It's not compatible with quite a few web pages I visit.

"Fantastic, If Firefox is the only one you've ever used."

May 27, 2007  |  By tehahn1

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.3

Cons

It's slow to recognize and bring up websites. Confusing Menu Bar, because nothing seems to flow in the set up, (and I thought going from IE6 to IE 7 was a pain).

The addons need special programs just to open the program, but they don't tell you this until you try to open it. (IXP)? Com'om guys...you can do alot better than this. Even a Caveman can use IE.

OK...it was fun (after we had 6 beers). Like a Sixth World Web Experience!!

Uninstalled it.......
