Forbes Raves About Mozilla Firebird

Wednesday February 4th, 2004

In the personal technology section of its website, Forbes magazine raves about Mozilla Firebird. The browser's tabbed browsing, popup blocking and integrated search are all given glowing reviews. "If, in its unfinished state, Firebird is this good," Forbes says, "perhaps Microsoft should be worried." Thanks to Darin Fisher for the link.

As of Firebird 0.8, it will feature an installer. 0.8 will soon replace the 0.7 as 'current release'

Furthermore: Most packages need the installer, to register registry keys, and install things in maps like system32. Firebird doesn't. Unzip it, double click on the bird, and it runs. But, to facilitate the non-tech end-user, they now have an (i must say, it looks sweet) Installer.

btw, if you want to test/sneak-a-peak the oncoming 0.8 release, check <…ebird/nightly/latest-0.8/>
