Just another “how brilliant it is” posting on the web. As we have seen, it is rising in popularity, but IE isn’t being *that* affected just yet. This probably means Firefox is soaking up EVERYONE that isn’t using IE (on windows). Most people still find no reason to switch, the word “browser” is irrelevant to the average home user, the “internet” just appears on their screen when they (double)click the little blue e icon on their “main screen”, and the sites they visit are just as ^&*% and ad-filled as ever with no Googling skills to be seen :p

Best features:

  • The excellent RSS button that automatically creates a folder in your bookmarks with links to all recent entries in the feed.
  • Hit ctrl+f the highlight find feature rocks and stops you from losing your place as you “tab” to the next result.

  1. Other features that made me switch from IE to FF:
    – Tabs
    – Adblock extension
    – Clearer options

    I recently helped a friend install DSL on his and his fathers machine. They fetched a virus after less then 24 hours. I installed FF, and no virus problems ever since.
    FF has a good chance to hit the mass-market.
