but lets hope stuff actually happens between them, instead of the current stall we seem to have at the moment

myself, i have been happy with progress. Microsoft is Glacial-paced. Mozilla is Rabbit-paced. may not be ferrari-paced, but considering how many features they add and how many bugs get fixed (and how QUICKLY they get fixed) i cannot complain. looking back seeing where we are now with 1.7.1 compared to 1.4 compared to 1.0.2; just amazing. microsoft cannot even develop simple patches at that rate, let alone add features (when they do it seems to mostly introduce more security flaws). for a volunteer open-source not-for-profit (or whatever it is called) they do well. MS spends billions developing a disaster; mozilla for free gives away good product with what i think is rapid development, with minimal "stall" time. for a freebie, they are a godsend.

Well done guys keep up the good work!

I have used Moz/Firefox/Thunderbird for a good while now as a replacement for IE/OE/other mail clients I was using and they rock!!

Firefox rocks more than Mozilla though as it is smaller ;)

Kim Komando convinced me to migrate away from I/E because of security concerns AND I might add that I also stuffed the SBC Yahoo brouser because it's a I/E spinoff ------- I'm not a whiz with the pc but i really like the way firefox operates Thanks for a good product

I'm hoping the hackers will not start targeting firefox as they did I/E It seems that someone could come up with a utility that would block such malicious code from being able to travel over the net But for now I feel that with firefox and avast and Zonealarm and spybot search and destroy I can surf with a measure of security I owe my security to Kim Komando's good guidance
