Firefox is on a Roll

I was just over at the Firefox Homepage, checking out the new features of PR 1.0. The good folks over there are setting some pretty impressive goals, and I’m going to do my part to help ’em out.

They are trying to get 1,000,000 downloads in 10 days. So far, after 2 days there have already been 500,000! That’s more than halfway there! So, it’s time to do your part.

It’s time to start seeing the web the way it is supposed to be. It’s time to start not having to worry about pop-ups, pop-unders, spyware and crazy activeX scripts. It’s time to start tabbed browsing. Oh yea, built in RSS reader now too.

Fast, free and secure. Even if you are using XP and got the SP2 update, Firefox is still better. As a bonus, it doesn’t take 2 hours to download and install. Even if you are using Firefox now, you are still going to want to cruise over there and download the PR.

  1. Not being a user of the google bar extension, I wasn’t affected. The webdev tool bar still works, and that’s the one that matter to me the most! Don’t worry, the extensions are being fixed, even as I type this.

  2. I am a big fan of FireFox. I don’t understand how they’re able to put out an awesome browser for free (or what benefit they get from it) but I don’t even use IE anymore. Also, it doesn’t help that–like two dogs fighting over one piece of meat–IE stopped working on my computer once I installed Windows 2000. (You know there’s a problem when your company’s own software hates each other.)
