Why you should use Firefox

For two reasons:
  1. It is a tabbing browser. Everybody should be using a tabbing browser, which enables one to display n web pages simultaneously using n tabs in one single browser window. In contrast, for a non-tabbing browser such as old IE, this opens up n browser windows cluttering your precious desktop space. This used to be reason enough to use Firefox, but no longer. Firefox makes it necessary for any browser to be a tabbing browser to survive in the market place.
  2. The most important reason to use Firefox is that it is extensible. There are many extensions or add-ons that you can install on your copy of Firefox to add functionalities to it. For myself, all of my client computers run Firefox with different sets of add-ons installed. The intersection includes:
    • Answers
    • Clipmarks
    • FEBE
    • Firebug
    • iMacros
    • Live HTTP Header
    • WebMail Notifier
