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.

"Constantly crashes!"

March 09, 2008  |  By fprioleau

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox


Mozilla works ok and I loved the tabbed browsing.


Constantly crashes! Everyday I've used this program, I've had to reload it because of the lockups and you have to use, 'force quit' to get rid of it and start it back up.

It beats outdated Internet Explorer


The updated Firefox for the Mac is very prone to crashing unexpectedly

"It crashed over and over and OVER! I switched back to Safari. I had no choice."

February 10, 2008  |  By MacUser4life!!!

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox


I automatically downloaded and installed the latest Firefox as usual. This one is and it is crashing and freezing repeatedly. It is buggy. I am mad. I had to switch back to Safari because I couldn't use Firefox. It was irritating to have to import my bookmarks back into Safari and get used to Safari again. I actually liked Firefox for a long time. I just wish somebody could tell me why it is so buggy on my eMac with Mac OS X 10.4.11. I haven't had any problem yet with the latest Firefox on my MacBook because I haven't used my laptop since the new Firefox came out. I am afraid to try it. Please email me with a fix if you know of one. Thanx.
