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.

"It is okay; however, it is not as great as the Avant Browser is"

November 05, 2007  |  By flembree

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.9

Pros

It works well, and presents the web sites nicely.

Cons

I don't like all the add-ons that keep being pushed on the user, the creating of a new tab by depressing a bookmark does not produce a new tab unless one makes an effort to do so. It does not have the URL alias system that Avant has. In my opinion, Firefox would have to go a long, long way to come up to the abilities of the Avant Browser.

"I love this Browser."

November 04, 2007  |  By Dallyhome

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.9

Pros

This program is the best browsers of the year.It has surpassed every other browser in speed,security,friendliness.etc

Mozilla has really gave IE users a second chance in security and Hackers don't know where to run.

Ive used this browser since march of 2007 and NEVER has this program let me down.ever.

as an added bonus to users the programs FREE and has surpassed costing browsers as well.

By the end of the year EVERYONE that has a computer MUST leave Internet explorer and choose Firefox.I dont work for Mozilla.LOL

Cons

What......

"Great Browser"

November 04, 2007  |  By Baldy2

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.9

Pros

I have been using Fire Fox since it came out with It's first version. Now that you can get a Internet Explorer extension for it, I don't bother about using Internet Explorer at all only when I have to via Windows update. "Eat Your Heart Out Microsoft" Fire Fox will always be my Default Browser.

Cons

NONE

"It appears to work fast and efficient and I like it. "

November 04, 2007  |  By Werner K. Layer

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.9

Pros

I have been using the previous one and have been very pleased with it as well. Since I am in an area where we have only "dial-up" service with only 46.6 kb, I appreciate the versatility and the speed this software is providing.

"Excellent for Bloggers and Love the Spell Check!"

November 02, 2007  |  By ccol4him

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.9

Pros

I just tried Mozilla out for the first time this weeek. It's excellent for creating blogs with background codes. I do a blog for a fan club run by Clique and the codes work much better than with Internet Explorer. The pages load well even with a dial up connection. I frequently make typos while I'm communicating online, so the spell check is a Godsend.

Cons

I can't really think of any now, but I'm a new user. The only thing that might help Mozilla to be any better is an easier way to transfer or copy your Favorites or Bookmarks from another browser, than having to start all over again. All in all , it's an excellent browser.
