Mozilla Releases Firefox 1.0
It’s here! Mozilla Foundation has released Version 1.0 of its Firefox Web browser with great enthusiasm and fanfare.
The open-source development project hopes to attract more everyday Web users and snag 10 percent of the market in another year.
Firefox’s features include tabbed browsing for viewing multiple Web pages in one window, Live Bookmarks for viewing RSS feeds and pop-up blocking. The browser runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
“It’s a set of things you would want in a browser if you sat down and really thought about it,” Mozilla President Mitchell Baker said.
Be patient downloading because their servers seem to be on overload. A word of warning: some of your plugins might no longer work until they’ve been updated. And let’s hope it’s a little more forgiving rendering HTML because not all of us are expert webmasters. For example, the Bloke’s top banner appears compressed in Mozilla compared to IE. Very irritating.
