OSDir.com Reviews Mozilla Firefox

Tuesday May 25th, 2004

Several people wrote in to tell us that OSDir.com is running an article introducing users to Mozilla Firefox. The review talks about the simplicity of the user interface and gives lots of praise to features such as tabbed browsing and the Search Bar. However, the author is disappointed by the Download Manager's inability to resume failed downloads without retransferring the entire file. While generally correct, it should be noted that the article contains a few inaccuracies, such as reporting that Firefox will be renamed Mozilla Browser come version 1.0. A second part, focussing on Mozilla Thunderbird, is promised.

I think the misconception about Firefox becoming "Mozilla Browser" is very understandable, given that mozilla.org is still confused about the name (e.g. <http://www.mozilla.org/roadmap/branding.html> and <http://www.mozilla.org/roadmap.html> , which both talk about "Mozilla Browser" being the future name).
