Free FireFox Download. Better, Brighter and Gaining on MSIE Fast
by Wayne Porter
We are big fans of the Firefox browser and it's no wonder. Mozilla Firefox (originally known as "Phoenix" and briefly as "Mozilla Firebird") is a free, cross-platform, graphical web browser developed by the Mozilla Foundation and hundreds of volunteers. With that many volunteers you can rest assured you are getting a quality product full of fresh ideas. Not to mention the fact that because of it's saftey features it is an ideal browser for children.
Before its 1.0 release on November 9, 2004, Firefox had already gained acclaim from numerous media outlets, including Forbes and the Wall Street Journal. With over 25 million downloads in the 99 days after its release, Firefox became one of the most downloaded free and open source applications, especially among home users.
On October 19, 2005, Firefox had its 100 millionth download, just 344 days after the release of version 1.0. With Firefox, the Mozilla Foundation aims to develop a lightweight, fast, intuitive, and highly extensible standalone browser forked from the Navigator component of the Mozilla Application Suite. Firefox has become the foundation's main development focus (along with its Thunderbird email client), and has replaced the Mozilla Suite as their official main software release. Firefox includes an integrated pop-up blocker, tabbed browsing, live bookmarks, support for open standards, and an extension mechanism for adding functionality.
Although other browsers have introduced these features, Firefox became the first such browser to achieve wide adoption. Firefox has attracted attention as an alternative to other browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer. It even sports in a built-in pop-up blocker and we know most people hate pop-ups.
Try the Firefox Browser with built-in Google Toolbar.
It's fast, fun, safe, more secure and easy to use- the perfect browser for Kids.
Say Goodbye to Pop-ups and Hello to Better Security!
