"Asides from a brief history of the browser, we've got Ben talking about what's happening to Firebird at the moment, why Internet Explorer users should switch, and much much more."

"...I think we do a better job than any other non-IE browser at displaying web pages properly." - Ben Goodger

I personally think it should be stressed that Firebird (for the most part) displays W3C standard web pages *better* than IE. For instance, gecko does a much better job rendering CSS than the latest versions of IE. It's only the proprietary code that gecko stumbles on.
