MSN Slate Magazine: "Firefox trumps Internet Explorer"

Monday July 5th, 2004

Several readers wrote in to tell us that the MSN Slate Magazine ran an article recommending Mozilla Firefox over Internet Explorer last week. Author Paul Boutin mainly prefers Firefox for security reasons, with the browser's lack of support for ActiveX eliminating many virus and spyware concerns. While Slate is owned by Microsoft, it should be noted that the publication has always maintained that it is editorially independent and that Boutin is a freelance journalist.

Firefox is pretty sweet. I made it the default browser on Fedora Core 2 and it is running great. The latest 0.9.1 release is bug free enough for general browsing. I have flash and the Java plugin working without any problems. Such a cool browser. It could possibly use a mail application button that could be dragged to a toolbar to open your favorite mail program.
