    Talking Mozilla Firefox, the browser formally known as Firebird, formerly known as Phoenix

    ...and is now at version 0.8 Mozilla Thunderbird, the stand-along email client is now at version 0.5 as well

    Mozilla Firefox is an awesome web browser I have been using it since 0.5, and haven't used anything else since! I urge you to try it out, I can almost guarantee that you won't go back to IE!


    The main Mozilla website is getting totally hammered right now, but I have a mirror available for MP3Car.com people (ie, please don't distribute the link around).

    Firefox 0.8 setup
    Thunderbird 0.5

    ive been using mozilla for a long time, since im not a netscape fan and it was the next best thing for linux.

    But on my windows box its Firebird (now FireFox) all the way. Its really efficient comapred to IE.

    At the risk of sounding too much like a "me too" post, I have been using Pheonix, Firebird, Firefox since 0.3 and Thunderbird as well. As a consequence, I am now addicted to those damned mouse gestures and keep trying to use them in Windows(TM) Explorer whilst browsing my hard drive. I also like the search term features i.e. "term computer" in the address bar will bring up dictionary.com's reference for the word "computer" as well as "google mp3car" will bring up the google search on "mp3car.

    Downloading the email client as we speak.
