This can only be described as a good thing. Not just the top pick of their staff, but the fact that they give a copy on a free CD. A *lot* of people try out stuff on free CDs, especially when they're talked about in magazine articles.

The Wintel-Pushing "Maximum PC" folks have probably ran out of bloatware to review. I'm impressed.

#5 It must be usable.....

It must be usable because I installed FireFox on my girlfriends Windows box and she's using it now in prefference to Internet Explorer. I myself use it myself on Gentoo Linux.

Cheers, Dylan

It's about time that Mozilla has gotten some coverage. Now when I recommend it to clients over IE (or IE2) they may not stare blankly.

When my Internet Explorer got hijacked on the web, I was ready to throw in the towel and never go online again, that is until I tried Firefox ver 0.9. Now I can surf the web without fear of my privacy being invaded or having my computer hijacked by criminals. Thank you very much.

#8 An excellent product indeed

I really appreciate the firefox team for an excellent job done! My PC was almost unusable running IE with the numerous spyware that exploited it to the extent that I thought of formatting and reinstalling everything again. The worst thing was I could not uninstall and reinstall IE and at this stage I was cursing Microsoft. I heard about forefox from a friend and since then all my browser nightmares haver come to an end. Browsing the internet has never been better.
