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.

re: DOJ requiring Microsoft to unbundle IE and include an FTP program and a list of browsers.

This is ridiculous. Do you realize most people have no idea what FTP is? The EU sanctions requiring MSFT to distribute a version of windows without WMP are equally absurd. No vendor in its right mind would ship it. How is a consumer with little experience with computers supposed to pick from two unfamiliar choices? (Or, just as likely, pick from the familiarity of IE and some unknown other browser (Firefox)).
