Mozilla Firebird

  1. Jun 11, 2003 #1
    For all you MS haters and open source folk out there try out the Mozilla Firebird browser if you haven't already. I have made the switch from IE6. Firebird is by far the best browser I believe. It's very fast and scaled down. You can also easily install plugins that let you do various things.

    I use netscape 7.02 at home, and konqueror for linux.
    Mozilla's screen looks alike as netscape, i think mozilla plagerise netscape's design.

    Mozilla was netscape...

    Also, Firebird has a completely different GIU, it's very basic and small.

    I agree. Mozilla is FUN. There's all sorts of extra options, and I can't do without the tabbed browsers anymore, which I am pretty sure was not avail. on netscape, but I could be wrong.

    you can get the tabbed windows in opera, too.

    i don't really like how the forums here show up in firebird. are there any plugins i need/ settings i need to change?

    I used opera for a while, but for some reason I just like Mozilla better. Can't put my finger on it exactly.

    Yeah... I switched from opera to Firebird too to lose the ad bar that was starting to bug me.
