'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.


#6 Geeky?

Opera - definitely, Mozilla (Seamonkey) probably but Firefox - defenitely not!

I mean the Firefox interface has been designed to be as user friendly as possible and IE users should have no trouble migrating. Toolbar customisation is about as user friendly as you can get it - and it's not even an essentiual function.

Basically I believe that all the tasks you do with IE are as easy to do with Firefox, plus there's a lot of other extras that are easy to learn about that make browsing a pleasure, but not knowing about them doesn't make your life harder.
