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.

    Cons

    Rounded rectangles?? Really?

    Summary

    I used to like firefox. but when they changed the interface, I really don't like it. By now, I prefer to IE 11. They should not use rounded edges. of the tabs.

    "Just as Horrible as Internet Explorer"

    July 13, 2014   |   By Spruill79

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 30.0

    Pros

    None at all to be put here

    Cons

    Where do I begin this browser was so bad I thought my computer had a virus. It freezes crashes and burns that is all it did. This browser does not deserve the #1 spot. I have Opera and it is the best Browser I have ever had smooth and fast.

    Summary

    Avoid at all costs.

    "One of the top ones"

    July 09, 2014   |   By JSan97

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 30.0

    Pros

    Secure
    Abundance of possible addons
    Low memory usage with many tabs compared to other browsers
    Monthly updates

    Cons

    Depending on system, may be a tad slow

    Up at the top with Google Chrome and Chromium-based Opera, Firefox remains one of the go-to browsers for home users and offers many addons to enhance their experience.

    "Not worth the trouble anymore removed it from my PC"

    June 26, 2014   |   By musicman4you

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 30.0

    Pros

    That it is open sourced

    Cons

    To many to mention.Just read the other reviews they already said it.To be honest I wish I could go back to Firefox version 3.6 that I always used.Seems like it started going downhill after 3.6.

    Summary

    I can't recommend this to anyone and don't trust Google Chrome on Privacy.I can't recommend the newer stripped down version of Opera anymore but I can tell you that I would and do recommend the Pale Moon browser that is open source just like Firefox with hundreds of features and will use Firefox Add-ons.Pale Moon in my opinion is the best Browser out there out of all of them.With all of these other Browsers going downhill I have been using Pale Moon for over a month and it is awesome.If you are fed up with the other Top browsers like me give Pale Moon a try and download it from there site with a google search.Be sure and download the right version for your computer.They have a 32 bit and 64 bit version plus a Linux version.They are making an Android version also.The other browsers could learn or should learn from Pale Moon.It is awesome.

    June 24, 2014   |   By jetgraphics

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 30.0

    Pros

    It was once the best browser. But no more.

    Cons

    Where do I begin?
    Facebook - slow - hang -
    Play back of videos - locks up or no show
    Play back of audio files - sometimes
    Keeps eating memory and slows down even more

    Summary

    I am forced to go to CHROME, for only it "plays nice."

    "Firefox is going downhill!"

    June 23, 2014   |   By charliejh

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 30.0

    Pros

    I like the look of the new Firefox and it has nice extensions and themes.

    Cons

    BUT: Every time that I hit enter or click the mouse it takes forever to load. No problem with Chrome or IE11. I have Comcast with 59 mbps download time. AMD A10 with 16 gigs of ram. I hate Chrome but I will have to revert to it.

    "I have used Firefox for years and prefer it to IE."

    June 22, 2014   |   By HPJIII

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 30.0

    Pros

    Steady, reliable browser.

    Cons

    However, some of the 'new' ways they are updating Firefox are unnecessary and a little bit puzzling.

    Summary

    Probably the best browser you can get for free.
