Yesterday, on the anniversary of the falling of the Berlin Wall, Everyone’s favorite little browser that could finally reached 1.0.
Some have started calling November 09, 2004 – Web Independence day!
For those of you who don't know, Firefox is a free (as in beer and speech), compact, extensible, fast and relatively secure web browser developed by the Mozilla Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of open source cross platform applications.
Firefox has various excellent end-user features such as tabbed browsing, built-in pop up blocker, download manager, live RSS bookmarks, among other nifty tools. Besides the great end user features, Firefox is built based on open standards, reason why as a developer, I love the program.
