Mozilla Firefox - faster, more secure, easier to use and sporting a
new look, this latest Firefox release sets a new standard for web
browser innovation. 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. It is small, fast and easy to use, and offers many
advantages over other web browsers, such as the tabbed browsing and the
ability to block pop-up windows.Features in Firefox include:
Easy migration: Switching to Firefox has never been easier now that
Firefox imports data like Favorites, history, settings, cookies and
passwords from Internet Explorer. Firefox can also import settings from
Mozilla 1.x, Netscape and Opera.
- Smaller Download: Continuing
efforts to make this the most efficient browser, the Windows version of
Firefox is now only a 5.7 MB download, making downloading Firefox a
breeze for dial-up and broadband users alike.
- New Default Theme: A new default theme provides a bright new look for Windows and Linux users.
SmartUpdate: A new SmartUpdate feature notifies users of new versions
of Firefox to ensure that the browser is always up to date.
- Help: A new online help system makes this one powerful, friendly browser.
Extension/Theme Manager: New Extension and Theme Managers provide a
convenient and secure way to manage and update the hundreds of add-ons
that set Firefox apart from other browsers.
Mozilla Firefox also includes numerous bug fixes and incremental improvements, including faster page load speed.
- Popup Blocking: Stop annoying popup ads in their tracks with Firefox's built in popup blocker.
Tabbed Browsing: View more than one web page in a single window with
this time saving feature. Open links in the background so that they're
ready for viewing when you're ready to read them.
- Smarter Search:
Google Search is built right into the toolbar, and there are a plethora
of other search tools including Keywords (type "dict " in the Location
Bar), and FastFind (start typing the first few letters of some text in
the page and Firefox takes you there).
- Privacy and Security: Built
with your Security in mind, Firefox keeps your computer safe from
malicious spyware by not loading harmful ActiveX controls. A
comprehensive set of privacy tools keep your online activity your
- Hassle-Free Downloading: Files you download are
automatically saved to your Desktop so they're easy to find. Fewer
prompts mean files download quicker.
- Fits Like a Glove: Simple and
intuitive, yet fully featured, Firefox has all the functions you're
used to - Bookmarks, History, Full Screen, Text Zooming to make pages
with small text easier to read, etc.
- S M L XL XXL XXXL: Firefox is
the most customizable browser on the planet. Customize your toolbars to
add additional buttons, install new Extensions that add new features,
add new Themes to browse with style, and use the adaptive search system
to allow you to search an infinite number of engines. Firefox is as big
or small as you want.
- Setup's a Snap: At only 4.7MB (Windows),
Firefox only takes minutes to download over a fast connection. The
installer gets you set up quickly, and the new Easy Transition system
imports all of your settings - Favorites, passwords and other data from
Internet Explorer and other browsers - so you can start surfing right
- A Developer's Best Friend: Firefox comes with a standard set
of developer tools including a powerful JavaScript and CSS
error/warning console, and an optional Document Inspector that gives
unheard of insight into how your pages work.

What's New in Firefox 2:
Visual Refresh: Firefox 2's theme and user interface have been updated
to improve usability without altering the familiarity of the browsing
* Built-in phishing protection: Phishing Protection
warns users when they encounter suspected Web forgeries, and offers to
return the user to their home page. Phishing Protection is turned on by
default, and works by checking sites against either a local or online
list of known phishing sites. This list is automatically downloaded and
regularly updated when the Phishing Protection feature is enabled.
Enhanced search capabilities: Search term suggestions will now appear
as users type in the integrated search box when using the Google,
Yahoo! or search engines. A new search engine manager makes
it easier to add, remove and re-order search engines, and users will be
alerted when Firefox encounters a website that offers new search
engines that the user may wish to install.
* Improved tabbed
browsing: By default, Firefox will open links in new tabs instead of
new windows, and each tab will now have a close tab button. Power users
who open more tabs than can fit in a single window will see arrows on
the left and right side of the tab strip that let them scroll back and
forth between their tabs. The History menu will keep a list of recently
closed tabs, and a shortcut lets users quickly re-open an accidentally
closed tab.
* Resuming your browsing session: The Session Restore
feature restores windows, tabs, text typed in forms, and in-progress
downloads from the last user session. It will be activated
automatically when installing an application update or extension, and
users will be asked if they want to resume their previous session after
a system crash.
* Previewing and subscribing to Web feeds: Users can
decide how to handle Web feeds (like this one), either subscribing to
them via a Web service or in a standalone RSS reader, or adding them as
Live Bookmarks. My Yahoo!, Bloglines and Google Reader come pre-loaded
as Web service options, but users can add any Web service that handles
RSS feeds.
* Inline spell checking: A new built-in spell checker
enables users to quickly check the spelling of text entered into Web
forms (like this one) without having to use a separate application.
Live Titles: When a website offers a microsummary (a regularly updated
summary of the most important information on a Web page), users can
create a bookmark with a "Live Title". Compact enough to fit in the
space available to a bookmark label, they provide more useful
information about pages than static page titles, and are regularly
updated with the latest information. There are several websites that
can be bookmarked with Live Titles, and even more add-ons to generate
Live Titles for other popular websites.
* Improved Add-ons manager:
The new Add-ons manager improves the user interface for managing
extensions and themes, combining them both in a single tool.
JavaScript 1.7: JavaScript 1.7 is a language update introducing several
new features such as generators, iterators, array comprehensions, let
expressions, and destructuring assignments. It also includes all the
features of JavaScript 1.6.
* Extended search plugin format: The
Firefox search engine format now supports search engine plugins written
in Sherlock and OpenSearch formats and allows search engines to provide
search term suggestions.
* Updates to the extension system: The
extension system has been updated to provide enhanced security and to
allow for easier localization of extensions.
* Client-side session
and persistent storage: New support for storing structured data on the
client side, to enable better handling of online transactions and
improved performance when dealing with large amounts of data, such as
documents and mailboxes. This is based on the WHATWG specification for
client-side session and persistent storage.
* SVG text: Support for the svg:textpath specification enables SVG text to follow a curve or shape.
New Windows installer: Based on Nullsoft Scriptable Install System, the
new Windows installer resolves many long-standing issues.
