Editors' Review

Read CNET senior editor Rob Vamosi's extended review of Firefox 3.

No longer a fledgling upstart, Firefox 3 is full-featured, lightning fast, and an able Internet Explorer foe. Previous versions have seen Mozilla's approach to features such as tabbed browsing and extensions become extremely popular. Even though Firefox 3 lacks a killer feature, it offers significant improvements not to be missed.

Version 3 introduces a multitude of safety and usability features. The location bar drop-down menu now includes URLs from both your browsing history and your bookmarks. A new Add-Ons manager includes a built-in plug-in search engine, saving you the previous trip to the Mozilla Web site. Single-click the star icon on the right of the location bar to bookmark the current page, or double-click on it to simultaneously add and edit the bookmark entry. You can tag bookmarks, too. Other impressive new features include password confirmation before adding it to the saved passwords list, the ability to pause and resume downloads, and merged forward and backward history lists.

Firefox 3 now runs faster and, according to Mozilla, is less susceptible to hacks and other vulnerabilities. The browser now warns your system's antivirus program when you download a file, and anti-malware and anti-phishing utilities now throw up a warning page before allowing Firefox to load risky sites. The favicon reveals Web sites' ownership details and displays the security level of your connection to that site.

Developers will appreciate that Firefox 3's new graphics and text rendering code provide rendering improvements in CSS and SVG as well as improved display of fonts and complex scripts. Firefox 3--still open-source, as ever--is a browser that all users should consider making their default Web-surfing tool.

"One of the best."

June 10, 2009  |  By Innushka

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10

Pros

Secure, fast, tons of add-ons and skins.

Cons

Deletes bookmarks/favorites randomly.

Summary

I don't have many bad things to say about Firefox. I like it. The only reason I got rid of it is because it liked to delete my bookmarks/favorites at random times.

"Very secure browser with lots of add-ons and toolbars."

June 10, 2009  |  By SJSF

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10

Pros

Its compatible with lots of security add-ons like mcAfee's Site Adviser,WOT,Web Security Guard and many others.Compatible with most toolbars and has lots of useful add-ons.Its faster more stable and secure than IE8.

Cons

Too many add-ons may slow its start-up time a little bit.

Summary

I think its the most secure browser because of its many security add-ons and reviews its faster at opening tabs than IE8 but I think its slower at start-up than simple add-onless Google Chrome although this might be because of all the add-ons that I use in Mozilla Firefox.

"Outstanding browser"

June 07, 2009  |  By libbycve

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10

Pros

I've been using Firefox since 2.0 and it continues to get better and better.they continually add new features. They have the best plug-ins and add-ons available.

Cons

speed has always been an issue it's faster than any of the IInternet Explorer products. But it is still a hard slower than chrome, Opera or Safari.

Summary

an excellent browser with lots of features. I was using Internet explorer when I first started on computers. However I switched over really fast to Firefox when friends of mine told me about it. I would recommend Firefox to anyone as it is a much more intuitive browser for beginners than its competitors. I've looked at some of the other browsers and they are much harder to use for a beginning user.I enjoy the auto complete feature I find it very handy as I don't have to look up bookmarks as often. I would suggest this product to anyone.

"Greater browser. Haven't had any issues."

June 06, 2009  |  By quinton_king

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10

Pros

I've tried a good number of browsers, but I always come back to Firefox. It's greatest functionality lies in it's speed and safety. Mozilla does a great job of keeping Firefox updated.

Cons

The browser seems a little cluttered after initial installation. I generally find a new skin to make it smaller and make some minor changes before I begin avid use.

Summary

I haven't experienced any of the major issues reported through previous reviews, not even in earlier versions. Firefox has always been a clean, fast, responsive browser in terms of usability. The only other browser that I have used that has chances at the long term is google chrome, and I still believe that Firefox is superior in terms of speed and safety. Maintain an A+ clean computer and Firefox will give you no issues.

"Great Browser"

May 31, 2009  |  By Darkquest21

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10

Pros

Great Security, RSS Reader, One Click Bookmarking, Themes, Extensions, Very Customizable, Private Browsing (Coming Soon), Tracemonkey (Coming Soon, Fastest Javascript on the planet), and way more.

Cons

Firefox has a big memory leak problem that can get on my nerves because I don't have a lot of memory. Also, it takes too long to start up.

Summary

Firefox is a great browser and has a lot of speed, customizbility, security, and more. How ever if Mozilla just got rid of the stupid memory leak, it would be very successful!

To Microsoft: Get rid of Internet Explorer because you fail at making browsers. Dont you see your market share going down? That means people hate your browser. Why don't you partner with Mozilla and make firefox the default and people would be a lot happier.

"What? You wanted ME to review..?"

May 31, 2009  |  By OldeFart

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10

Pros

Nothin' to review.. I first used it as my default browser several months ago.. LOVED IT (especially with cooliris)... Only got this a few days ago.. Will let you know what I think later.. If it's like it's brothers, there's no comparison.

Cons

Would like a more cooliris (or even opera) interface (something unique besides just a Google search)

Summary

There's sites that Firefox just can't (or won't) access and with IE7pro emulating opera (as far as multi search bars w/ your choice of sites) 3.0.10 just might be set-back a notch or two but as far as dependability and really nice plug-ins? I agree with most of your reviewers... Thumbs up for Mozilla..
