'PC World' Looks at Mozilla Firefox 0.8

Thursday April 1st, 2004

The May 2004 issue of PC World features a short article about Mozilla Firefox 0.8. Reviewer Tom Spring likes the new download manager and the range of extensions available but concludes that the browser "remains too geeky for nontechies" he said it took him half an hour to master toolbar customisation.

I do not agree that toolbar customization is not a newbie activity. I have helped people get involved with Firefox (well haven't since the name switch) and it is one of the first things they want to do. They want to have the "Go" button or a link for all their bookmarks or a print button (there are others but I can't remember what is default any more). Browsing the help forum on Mozillazine that is one of the most common questions, how do I change this on my toolbar? Now, I do not know how you could make it any easier (other than adding "to remove an object drag it back into this window") but do not say that new users do not want to change the toolbar. I have found that is one of the first things they change when using Firefox.
