'Houston Chronicle' Raves About Easy, Fun, Fast, Safe, Free Mozilla Firefox

Saturday March 13th, 2004

The Houston Chronicle has an article about Mozilla Firefox, describing the browser as "easy, fun, fast, safe, free". The report highlights Firefox's popup blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated Google search, extensions, download manager, speed and privacy options. Thanks to tityre for telling us about this article.

Opera is also version 7! It's taken all this time and they're made it all the way to version 7 and it still can't render all completely compliant sites correctly. CSS support is less than subpar. I have Opera installed, but I only use it for testing. I would *never* consider using it as my main browser. I find it awful for real browsing. Default screen real estate also sucks. The (very little) extra speed it offers over Firefox is not enough to excuse the crappy rendering it performs. Lastly, Opera is the stupidest name for a browser that I've ever heard.
