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.

"Better than Explorer, hands down."

June 17, 2008  |  By nbeltz

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.14

Pros

Microsoft should package windows with Firefox instead of Explorer. You can surf faster, it's easy to use and personalize, and the add-ons are a dream.

"great browser"

June 13, 2008  |  By kennyone3

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.14

Pros

really like to be able to customize firefox and there are so many add ons to choose from. actually a browser you can control and enjoy trying this and trying that without causing any major headaches...

Cons

is a little sluggish at times and has a tendency to freeze up when you least expect it, but it still beats ie hands down...

"Buggered up my dish internet connection"

June 12, 2008  |  By yooptrooper2000

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.14

Cons

After using for less than an hour, suddenly lost ability to connect to any servers. Deleted program, went back to MS Explorer, still wouldn't work. Had to do a system restore to get up and running again. Anyone else running this on a Hughesnet DW7000 dish server?
