Firefox is an open source browser organized by the folks at Mozilla that empowers users to browse faster, more safely and more efficiently than other browsers.

Some of the benefits of Firefox include:

  • It imports your Favorites, settings and other information, so you have nothing to lose.
  • It stops annoying pop-up ads with the built in pop-up blocker.
  • You can view more than one Web page in a single window with tabbed browsing.
  • It keeps your computer safe from malicious spyware by not loading harmful ActiveX controls.
  • The Google Search is built right into the toolbar.
  • Known as "live" bookmarks, RSS integration lets you read the latest news headlines and read updates to your favorite sites that are syndicated.
  • Hassle-free downloading is set to automatically save files you download to your Desktop so they're easy to find.
  • Simple and intuitive, yet fully featured, Firefox has all the functions you're used to - Bookmarks, History, Full Screen, Text Zooming to make pages with small text easier to read, etc.
  • It is the most customizable browser on the planet: You can customize your toolbars to add additional buttons, install new Extensions that add new features, add new Themes to browse with style, and use the adaptive search system to allow you to search an infinite number of engines.
  • It is easy to set up. At only 4.5MB (Windows), Firefox takes just a few minutes to download over a slow connection and seconds over a fast connection.
  • It even contains a standard set of developer tools (including a powerful JavaScript and CSS error/warning console), and an optional Document Inspector that gives detailed insight about your pages.
