Mozilla Firefox project (formerly Firebird, which was formerly Phoenix) is a redesign of Mozilla's browser component, written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform.
Mozilla Firefox is a small, fast and very easy to use browser that offers many advantages over other web browsers, such as the ability to block pop-up windows and the tabbed browsing.
Features of Mozilla Firefox:
· comprehensive popup controls to keep unwanted advertising off your desktop;
· a tab browsing mode that lets you open several pages in a single window, allowing you to load links in the background without leaving the page you're on;
· integrated search (powered by Google);
· industry leading accessibility with Find As You Type - find links and page text by simply typing;
· simplified privacy controls that let you cover your tracks more effectively;
· a streamlined browser window that lets you see more of the page than any other browser while at the same time being more configurable;
· a large variety of free downloadable extensions and themes that add specific functionality and visual changes to the browser.
"Mozilla Corp. has met a major milestone in its march to Firefox 3.0, developers said yesterday, by adding another chunk of the new Places feature to the alpha set for release late next week.
Places -- a complete revamp of the bookmarks and history functions of the browser -- was at one point slated to debut in Firefox 2.0, but was yanked a year ago in the run up to that version's October 2006 release. Instead, it will debut in Firefox 3.0.
"We enabled the Places implementation of bookmarks on the trunk," said the Places team in a post to the Mozilla developer center . "Although there is still much to be done, this is an important milestone for us."
Firefox 3.0 alpha 5 is scheduled to launch June 1.
Don't wait for the 1st of June!!!!
