Mozilla Firefox

Mozilla Firefox 1.0 out of the box

After much anticipation, Mozilla Firefox was released today — no longer a “technology preview,” but a full-blown, stable release version. More amazing than that, for the first time I was able to run a flawless update using the new updater!

I couldn’t be more excited about this release. It’s great to be able to whole-heartedly recommend Firefox to friends without having to explain what a technology preview is and answer the inevitable question, “If it’s just a preview, does that mean it’s not stable?”. I’m confident this new release will kick the browser war up to a new level.

Have you rediscovered the web, yet? You have no more excuse. Do it today!

    I have to say, I am quite please with the new release.

    I was having a bit of a problem with the previous release, but it may have just been in my mind.

    One of the neat little tricks Firefox does is all of the many keyboard shortcuts. For instance, if you type an apostrophe it will open up the ‘find’ box and place your cursor in it.

    It seemed that it was doing that for me even when I was inside of a text box. Not so cool. Anytime I typed the word “don’t” I would have to grab my mouse and put the stupid cursor back in its place.

    They seemed to have fixed that in this release. :)

    As for the update, I too couldn’t be more happy. All of my bookmarks and personal settings came through with no problems.
