from the Mozilla group..
I just downloaded the Windoze version… so far, I am liking it. Especially the pop-up blocker. Of course, I do not know how good it is, since I been using it for minutes now..

Well.. Day One.
I am here in Phoenix, AZ. again. I get a call from the sales rep that the customer does not need at the site today. So I decide to use Firebird 0.61 as my primary browser for the day…
For a point of reference, I have already used Mozilla (I think since 1.0 or 1.1). Firebird is very similar. In fact, they share a lot of the same code.
For a version 0.61 release, in one day I have had ZERO problems with it. Also, the only pop ups I remember seeing are the ones that appear when I click on a link that opens a new window.
As for what I have issues with, it is all work related sites.. Especially our expense system, which requires Micro$oft VM… Java Run Time Environment does not work with our system. (oh, and you can not use Windows Update to patch your system)
So for a day one, it worked very well for me…
I do not usually do any customization of the browser, however I may have to look into for Firebird.. Just to play with it.
This is a very good, no-nonsense browser. Even the non-customized version I am using.

Mozilla is a great browser
Use it since the very beginning
Not a big fan of Firebird though, mostly becuz ZoneAlarm don’t block the ads
Thats something ZoneAlarm does when I use Mozilla
But FireBirds has some great options I miss in Mozilla
Such as Open All Tabs In Favorites & A Seperate Toolbar
& A Great PopUp Blocking System they have
But blockings Adds is more important for me, really hate these
They have a great Mailprogram to
Called Thunderbird, U should give that a try
Many great options that are not in Outlook such as JunkMail Control
