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.

    "Version 32.0.3 SUPER FAST"

    September 27, 2014   |   By riderchicky

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 32.0.3

    Pros

    Quick, easy to use and safer than Explorer. Closes when exited, unlike Google Chrome. Great plug-ins and themes available that make customization a breeze. Updates are regular and haven't caused a single problem on any of our computers

    Cons

    Hard to organize Bookmarks. Have to go into Unsorted Bookmarks in order to access all the folders. Other than that it's a breeze

    Summary

    ANYTHING is better than MS Explorer, we all know that. Chrome wouldn't shut down. Stayed open until I used Task Manager to kill processes. Not a big fan of Safari, another Apple garbage thing, so I have been using Firefox for about 5 or 6 years now. I love the simplicity of it and the security. Speed also rocks. Overall I am very pleased with the updates and the browser in general.
