Firefox 1.0.1 Released

Mozilla has released the latest update for Firefox web browser. The 1.01. version of the Thunderbird email client is also on it's way. Check out the Firefox 1.0.1 Release Notes here to see what's new. Microsoft has announced work on Internet Explorer 7 however, it will really have to have some great features to get me to use IE again. And despite the claims and counter-claims I think that Firefox is a better browser from the security viewpoint. Some folks have been stating recently that Firefox is going to "become" less secure over time as more people adopt it becuase malicious folks will set their sights on it. I wouldn't be too sure about that.

In anycase everyone has their own preferences but it would be a good idea to try Firefox if you haven't. My favorite feature is the tabbed browsing which allows me to open multiple (sometimes I have around 15) web pages in one Firefox window. It makes web surfing faster and links more efficient. You don't have to use the "Back" button so much. And it uses less computer resources (memory aka RAM etc.) than Internet Explorer.

Get Firefox!
