#1

Hey guys, the new Firebird browser version 0.6 has finally been released! I just have to say that it is VERY FAST. you guys should definately check it out.


#2

Yes it is fast, and it has a good rendering engine. I installed this baby and used it with great pleasure (seems to have less compatibility issues than Opera 7.11, but isn’t that nifty when it comes to mouse gestures and such…).


#3

Used to like Netscape… what the hell, I’ll give it another try.

Update: Damn, this thing’s on crack. It’s hella fast.:eek:


#4

This browser is awsome. They did an excellent job. I miss some features from Mozilla, but for quick browsing it rocks.


#5

Bumpedibump.
A new version has been released and from now on Firebird is known as Firefox.

Is it any good? I don’t know, I love my IE!

I’m told the URL is http://mozilla.org/products/firefox but I get a 404 on that page, probably overloaded with geeks… :slight_smile:


#6

Well I’m currently trying out Firefox, I like it better than mozilla but I have yet to come up with a reason as to why I should use this instead of IE…

actual java support ? :slight_smile:


#8

I found a major problem: It crashes on certain websites for some reason. Something to do with Flash/shockwave.

And what’s the use of bookmarks if I cant type them into the adress bar?


#9

I hate to admit it, but I’m sitting here in school, missing my dear Firefox… Guess it caught on… :slight_smile:


#10

Here you can find a very very nice set of plugins for Firebird/Firefox…!

Index.dat

And the tight integration between windows and ie makes the security holes affect windows itself if IE is used.


#12

firefox > opera? mozilla has always seemed clunky to me (i like the same browser on linux / windows)


#13

Could you evolve that a bit? Is Firefox more like Opera than Mozilla?
I tried Opera once but I didn’t like it then.

No, in term of features Mozilla is more like Opera.
Firefox are browser only, when Opera and Mozilla are a complete web suite (Web-browser, Mail-client, News-client and more… :wink:

I just installed Firefox on my Linux Laptop and it’s doing it’s work quite nice and fast. It seems to be offer better compatibility then Opera does. The only thing I still have to work out is the settings of the fonts, as the standard fonts make my eyes hurt…


#16

Aaaaand I’m back at IE again. I have serious issues with the way Firefox scrolls the page. I tried using SmoothWheel and other extensions but it never got smooth. IE is very smooth. But I like Firefox, I’ll keep it and use it from time to time. I’ve learnt to love tabs, tabs in IE would be wonderful.

Mozilla is a full featured browser with lots of extra features like a mail client, irc client and is a lot faster (and better) than IE.
firebird now known as firefox is just a plain browser that is super fast.
opera I don’t know much about, I used it for a while but alot of sites wouldn’t work correctly with it so it only lasted a couple of days
