Editors' Review


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

Though it's difficult to unseat Safari as the preferred browser of Mac users, Mozilla Firefox garners attention through its solid design and extra features, making it a worthy alternative. 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.

"Best of Class"

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox


Firefox is the best browser (my view) out there for "Mac" users. It has the best popup ad blocking, works with nearly all sites, has a great Tab function, is extremely secure and can be personalized more than any other browser.


Slightly slower than Opera.

"really not much more than a rearranged Internet explorwer."

Since it is so much like explorer, it doesn't take a whole lot of time to get comfortable with it.


I could not get my Norton 360 to work with it like it did with explorer. The pop up blocker also is not an lot of good.
