I used to hate Mozilla, I didn't really like any of the latest versions and prefered IE< but all that has changed now, Firebird is everything you want it to be, it's like IE but with tabbed browsing, it's quite simply unbeatable and it's now my default browser, I encourage everyone to give it a try, you won't regret it

I agree, mozilla firebird rules - but it is not like IE with tabbed browsing. it is, however, like mozilla without the mail client, IRC client, WYSIWYG editor, etc Smile

Edit: for those too lazy to google: http://www.mozilla.org/products/firebird/

Have to agree! I used to use Netcaptor (based around IE) for my tabbed browsing but since finding out that Firebird did tabbed browsing and giving it a try Netcaptor has been uninstalled. Very Happy

I like the fact that Firebird comes with not a lot of bloat but if I want I can bloat it up as much as I want with the extensions Laughing

the second screenshot @ http://www.moosoft.net/screenshots/ shows firebird, though these screen shots are more aimed at showing off linux/enlightenment Smile

edit: the screen shots are gone now, if you missed them too bad Smile hehe

I'm using Mozilla 1.5b and it has everything I could ever want in a browser, except TRUE fullscreen mode, like IE. Oh, well, small price to pay to not use Micro$oft.

The avatar is supposed to be humorous, not a serious statement of my loyalties :)

Of course its obvious - Microsoft is the biggest joke going, it therefore goes without saying that anything bearing its name is not to be taken seriously Wink
