    "Browsing on my terms!"

    November 10, 2004  |  

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

    Summary

    I started using Firefox in beta and couldn't wait for 1.0. It was worth it. I love the extensions and the tabbed browsing. So far not a single popup. No kidding, not a single popup.

    "Must have download"

    November 10, 2004  |  

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

    Summary

    This is a must have download and it should be your default browser. My favourite features are:
    - The popular tabbed browsing allows you to open multiple websites in the same window.
    - 'Find As You Type' allows you to find and highlight words on a web page by simply typing them on your keyboard.
    - An inbuilt pop up blocker means you will rarely see an annoying pop up advert.
    - The customizable inbuilt search bar means you can search Google or almost any other search engine from your toolbar (including Download.com).
    - Also, using the tabbed browsing if you sort your bookmarks into folders, with one click you can open up a whole folder of bookmarks in one window across multiple tabs. I bookmark the three newspaper website I want to read in the morning in a folder and with one click they all open up.

    Plus the program is fully customizable and safer than the other browsers on the market. Download it today!

    "Move over, IE!"

    November 10, 2004  |   By yfan

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

    Summary

    If you are going to download one software this year, this is the one. Firefox now has improved tab-manipulation abilities out of the box. Of course there is an evolving popup blocker, dozens of extensions so you can add whatever feature you might want, improved RSS abilities, and speed that surpasses any other browser - no matter the connection you are on. It's extraordinarily simple to use and to migrate from IE, yet it has everything you need. This is it. Firefox is THE browser of this century so far. If you haven't tried it, you don't know what you're missing. Download and give it a try now! I know that some worried about IE's dominance and some Opera fans are out in force to try to talk this browser down, but talk is cheap. Download it and give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

    "Great Browser!"

    November 10, 2004  |   By GeekSlug

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

    Summary

    Ok, I think this is a great browser, and I'll tell you my reasons for my ratings...
    Feature: Yes, it has everything you NEED, but no, it doesn't have too many extras, so whatever, one point of there
    Ease of Use: If you can't figure this out, go back to elementary or middle school, and learn some things over again...The skills you need to install are: Reading, and basic computer understanding...If you know what bookmarks and the internet are, great, you can use this...If you don't...I have nothing to say to you...
    Stability: Usually good, but takes little more time to open up
    Speed: Yes, I've tried all the other "good" browsers, and this is much faster than avant, maxthon, or whatever else you want to throw at me. YES, OPERA IS ALMOST AS FAST AND WITH MORE FEATURES BUT IT'S NOT COMPLETELY FREE AND COMES WITH AD BANNERS WHEN YOU JUST DOWNLOAD IT!
    So if you're looking for an alternative browser, this is it.

    "The only browser you should use"

    November 10, 2004  |  

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

    Summary

    This is by far a superior product to internet explorer. Unless you have to run an active x you should never need to use IE again! The best browser available right now is firefox.

    "Firefox simply owns all other browsers"

    November 10, 2004  |   By MasterShake

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

    Summary

    Firefox is simply amazing. From its streamlined, easy to use interface to its excellent security, Firefox simply has it ALL. Firefox is safer, more customizable, faster, supports all of the W3C standards, has tabbed browsing, RSS support and so much more.

    A note to those who are rating it poorly:

    First, Firefox doesn't have ActiveX built in because of security. ActiveX can be VERY dangerous, which is why it was never put into Firefox.

    Second, I've found more sites that won't render properly in IE than in Firefox. The only reason some sites don't work in Firefox is because they are poorly or IE coded and are nonstandard.

    Third, you keep saying wow, a popup blocker. That's just ONE of the features. The fact that it's built in makes it better than third party popup blockers. But, once again, only ONE of the many features.

    Fourth, the speed issue. I'm on 3mbps Charter cable and I've never noticed Firefox running slower than IE or even Opera for that matter. In fact, it seems to me that Firefox is even a little bit faster.

    Fifth, the comment about flash. I have flash running just fine with Firefox. If you're having problems with it, go to Macromedia's web site and download the executable there.

    Sixth,is my comment to the people recommending Opera over this.
    First of all, Opera contains a banner ad unless you pay them money and upgrade, which in my opinion is wrong. And also, the nice thing about Firefox is that it's not preloaded with so many things. If you want it, get the extension, if not then don't. It's that simple.

    Seventh, about extensions. The only safe extensions that should be downloaded are on Mozilla's update site. Other ones cannot be so easily trusted. Also, Firefox warns if that site tries to install something on your computer and allows you to give it permission or not to.

    Also, as a last word, this is the FIRST release out of beta. Firefox is excellent now and will continue to keep getting better.

    "The Best Browser Out There"

    November 10, 2004  |   By Oldiesmann

    Version: Mozilla Firefox 1.0

    Summary

    Mozilla Firefox is an example that should be followed by other browsers. Until recently, if you wanted a popup blocker in IE, you had to install a toolbar from some search engine or install third-party software. Want to block ads or images from one particular site? Sorry. You can't do that. And don't even think about trying to customize the look of IE. To do that you have to download an entire Windows XP theme, and only an administrator can install those. If you've got multiple people sharing the same account on a computer, you have to share the same features. Firefox changes all of that. It's got a built-in popup blocker that works better than the one in IE and is easily customizable. You can set up multiple profiles on the same Windows account, allowing each person using that account to customize the browser the way they want. Want to add some other features? No problem. This is also stored in your profile folder, so even a regular "limited" user can install their own themes and extensions and customize Firefox the way they want it. Firefox also complies with the latest web standards. You can even subscribe to RSS/XML feeds in Firefox ("Live bookmarks"). A handy little bookmark toolbar feature puts your favorite sites right at your fingertips for one-click access. Tabbed browsing saves space and confusion by allowing you to open multiple sites in the same window (if you get tired of trying to switch between multiple IE windows, you'll love this feature). Firefox was designed with the user in mind. Once you start using Firefox, you'll never want to go back to IE. One of the best parts about Firefox is that it's open-source, meaning you can modify the code and create your own features, and then post them on the internet for others to use without worrying about corporate lawyers knocking on your door. Firefox is the best browser out there.
