Webmonkey Takes Another Look at Mozilla and Mozilla Firebird

They love Mozilla's standards compliance and feature-set, but Firebird seems to be their browser of choice: 'Anyone who feels that Mozilla delivers a less-than-stellar browsing experience should give Firebird a shot.'"

Webmonkey is right on. I am ever so thankful there is an alternative browser out there that renders so nicely and has so many useful features since I am using Linux and I don't have access to IE. Accept the fact that Firebird hasn't reached version 1.0 yet I can't find any major faults with it. Java, Flash, realplayer all work with it now on Linux. As more companies switch over to Linux desktops in the next coming years Mozilla and Firebird are poised to become the Linux browser of choice.

Works with the suite, n/a in MFB, changing tabs:

Alt+D Ctrl+PageUp or Ctrl+PageDown

Needing one extra Ctrl+Tab or Ctrl+Shift+Tab to change the tabs:

Alt+D Ctrl+Tab or Ctrl+Shift+Tab
