Editors' Review

No longer a fledgling upstart, Firefox 3 is full-featured, lightning fast, and an able foe for both the big-dog competitor Internet Explorer and competitors nipping at its heels. Firefox's killer add-ons remain strong, and the latest update makes version 3.5 about two times faster than version 3. However, competition is strong and it can no longer be said that Firefox is the fastest browser available.

Several notable improvements in the latest revamp keep Firefox abreast of current browsing tech. Along with Mozilla's new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine that renders Web applications faster on Firefox than ever before, there have also been improvements to the layout engine Gecko for faster page rendering. The new Private Browsing brings a feature to Firefox that competitors have had for a while: the capability to turn off cookie and history logs. Users also have more granular control over cookies, history, and bookmarks in version 3.5 via the redone Clear Recent History option under Tools. Geolocation courtesy of Google has been activated by default in Firefox, so that generic searches such as "city hall" will come closer to pegging the government offices nearest you.

Web developers should be excited about expanded support for HTML5 local storage, downloadable fonts, and native support for OGG-formatted embedded video. ICC profiles, SVG transforms, CSS media queries, native JSON support, and Web worker threads also get lots of love from v3.5. There's no doubt that Firefox 3.5 is a must-have, but it's an update that's more about keeping the browser current rather than blazing new trails.

"Been using it for years with no problems"

January 23, 2010  |  By kankev

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.5.7

Pros

TAB browsing is far superior to Explorer...I know exactly where I am and how to get back to a previous page without guessing. Plenty of options available from the website to customize your experiences. Bookmarks is very well designed

Cons

Absolutely NONE! It has served me well for 8 years

Summary

When first using FireFox help files were found to be informative and more importantly "jargon" free which enabled the user to overcome any difficulties more easily than using IE (I frequently had to make phone calls - none with FireFox). The program has proven to be very stable and in the event of an unplanned closure eg. power failure its restore feature was always spot on. From newsletters etc. it appears Mozilla are more responsive AND receptive to new ideas, potential threats etc. than its main competitor. I can't add much more than to say that I am very happy with this product and would find it very difficult to change to another...

"I like older version better"

January 20, 2010  |  By genebean66

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.5.7

Pros

When I first have Firefox few years ago No Problem!

Cons

Biggest pet peeve! everytime I go to my usual sites most of time it have problems it say! Server not found! Firefox can't find the server at specials.msn.com. Check the address for typing errors such as
ww.example.com instead of www.example.com

Summary

Con't If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web. Try Again! Sometimes the webpage don't load properly I have to keep hitting Refresh all the time until Web Page load properly! When I have Fire fox few years ago I never had that Problem! It had same thing to my Girlfriend Comp Fire Fox Hic cups. And My Computer is not old I bought my Laptop in 2008 a Toshiba brand! My Computer didn't have any problems it's Fire Fox! So I try Google Chrome & give it a shot If it didn't have problems like Fire Fox I will use Google Chrome as my browser!

"Pleased and surprised how fast this Browser is."

January 20, 2010  |  By delaalma

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox 3.5.7

Pros

Easy to install. Faster that Internet Explorer.

Cons

Add On pop up screen and determining which add-ons are necessary.

Summary

I am truly pleased on how easy it was to install this browser and how fast it is to go from screen to screen. However being that I am not as computer savvy as others are, I do find it difficult to determine which downloads are necessary. Other than that it is my preferred Browser.
