Firefox is celebrating its
first birthday! Thats right, on the 9th of November the groundbreaking Firefox web-browser was one
year old with over 106 million downloads.
Its estimated that Firefox
currently serves 9% or surfers, with 85% being held by Internet Explorer. That sounds small, but when you consider that
all other browsers combined make up the remaining 6% (which would Netscape etc),
plus the fact that Internet Explorer comes pre-installed with Windows, its not
a bad feat in 12 months. I have used Firefox since its release
and could never go back to Internet Explorer.
Being a developer in the past I would always prefer Firefox for testing as it
followed W3C standards much more closely that
Microsofts offering. If you havent tried
it yet then give it a goIts free so theres nothing to lose!
