'MacUser' Reviews Mozilla Firefox, Jon Udell Full of Praise

Friday March 19th, 2004

Gavin Lawrie writes: "The UK magazine MacUser is carrying a review of Firefox 0.8 for OS X in its current edition (dateline 19 March 2004). The review is generally positive, and Firefox gets 'four mice out of five'. The review liked the browser, but complained about the tab interface. Would also seem that the reviewer failed to discover extensions. But the review ends, ' looks set to become a contender for best Mac browser.'"

Over at InfoWorld, Jon Udell says that users should switch from the "abandoned" Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox. In addition to praising features such as tabbed browsing, popup blocking and Find As You Type, Udell also rates the rich standards support and notes availability of a multitude of developer-oriented extensions. He claims that Mozilla's goal of a cross-platform technology framework is within reach.

Speaking of MacOS, my wife is currently using MacOS 9 with WaMCom 1.3.1. It generally runs smoothly, but she sometimes has issues when sending e-mails with large attachments and the rendering of certain web sites. I'm working on getting her to upgrade to MacOS X, but until that happens...

I know that has dropped support for MacOS 9, but are there any newer Mozilla-based MacOS 9 browsers? Thanks.
