Monday February 2nd, 2004

Technology and culture site Kuro5hin.org has published a primer introducing Windows users to Mozilla Firebird. The article outlines some reasons to switch to Firebird and before offering some advice about making it the default browser and installing Macromedia Flash Player. Thanks to Adam Hauner for the link.

I love the way Firebird gets built up as a great browser and then near the end we get this in nice Bold print.

"I definitely do not recommend using Firebird for any actual work, since it's still in pre-release, and stability is obviously not guaranteed. I recommend MSIE for anything work-related, and switch to Firebird for casual browsing."

Up to you if you want to leave this link to Kuro5hin, but personally I'd remove it.

btw for anyone new who just found out about Firebird or came over as a result of the article, Firebird is DEFINITELY useful for "actual work" and is a very stable. Myself and many others here use Firebird at work all day long in varied work environments. Unless you find site that 100% flat out won't work with Mozilla/Firebird there is no reason to not switch to Firebird and stop using Internet Explorer completely.
