'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 dislike Microsoft like most people here. They do seem have the customize toolbar in multiple places. Some have it in the old place under tools: Visual C++ 6, Visual Source Safe. Some have it in the new place under view like IE, Visual Basic 6. And some have it in both places like Word 2000, Excel 2000, Visual Studio 2002, Outlook 2000. Hell I can't even find a menu for it in Outlook express. I think firefox has it in the right place. It affects how you view the browser.

But come to think of it, it doesn't make much sense to have stop and reload under view. I would think that they belong under something like a commands or browse(r) menu. If not put them under the go menu. The reason I see refresh and stop under view in IE is because they go with the 'go to' command. But those still don't belong under view. Opera seems to have it right using the navigation menu. Also how about customizing menus like toolbars?
