Great free open source web browser Mozilla Firefox review by James Meyette.

By James Meyette

On Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Mozilla Firefox, Initially released in 2002 the open source browser can be used on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android Operating System. They are also currently building their own Smartphone OS called “Firefox OS”. The browser its selft can open any current, or outdated web page and uses standards for HTML4, HTML5, XML, MathML, XHTML, SVG 1.1, JS, CSS3, Atom, and RSS.

Incredibly small binary package holding at only 22MB and all the functionality you could ask for from a modern web browser. This is by far one of the best browsers available according to all of their users.

Some of the features that Mozilla offers include but are not limited to: Tabbed Browsing, SpellCheck, live bookmarks, smart bookmarks, DL manager and geolocation(provided by Google services.)

The browser and everything within in it is available in 79 languages as of of this review posting date Including British and American English, European and Argentine Spanish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, French, etc

Over all this is one of my preffered web browsers and a go to web browser when people ask for suggestions as to what they should use as their default.

You can download Mozilla Firefox for free here:

Pros

  • Clean easy to use, easily understood interface
  • Fast web browser easily replaces Internet Explorer
  • Many features, small binary download

Cons

  • Doesn't have some of the same functionalities as "Torch"for example

The Internet is even more free thanks to Mozilla Firefox browser

By Will Terry

On Monday, April 14, 2014

This browser has been my default browsing option for a long time until Google Chrome appeared in my life. Mozilla Firefox was the first alternative to Internet Explorer I’ve ever tried, and it was really helpful since the novelties that new websites asked for there were included in this Internet browser. The philosophy of this application really fits what I wanted at that moment, lots of plugins to download for free with helpful development kits to try to make your own version of the browser or to increase the number of available tools for it.

The bad part comes when you talk about the optimization of your computer resources. For browsing websites, it requires a high amount of RAM memory, and that can slow down the speed while you are surfing the web. For this reason, there are some users that prefer other application instead of Mozilla Firefox, but this browser is really recommendable, and I still use it even after so much time. The interface has changed all over this time, now it is more minimalistic than before and even more beauty, placing only the parts you will use in the main screen in order to attract the attention to the part that is really important, the website.

Pros

  • Large number of tools available for its use
  • Large number of tools available for its use
  • Powerful and compatible with most of Internet elements

Cons

  • Its use of RAM memory is not that good

Review

Mozilla Firefox is a highly customizable open source Internet browser which offers full-featured tools for improving your experience surfing the web. This application update has introduced several new features such as enhanced performance and anti-phishing security in order to protect your personal information against possible menaces. The new user interface is something fresh compared to other browsers, thanks to its new tab-browsing features and the great number of compatible add-ons.

Mozilla Firefox has made some changes from the previous version. It's developers have created a browser compatible with the latest web technologies in order to improve Firefox’s capabilities. HTML5, HD video content and high quality audio now work natively. It's streamlined design tries to display all kind of elements neatly, and also allows personalization using free third-party downloadable add-ons that enhance the functions of Mozilla Firefox.

The pop-up blocker helps users eliminate the constant annoyance of advertisement windows that may appear whilst you visit your favorite webpages. The new way of grouping different tabs into a new window is more visual, just like the general application which has become more intuitive with more popular functions. Because of these improvements in performance and security features, we can say that Mozilla Firefox is a powerful and recommendable option for your computer.

Not only for users but also for developers

The philosophy of Mozilla is clear in this aspect: open source is better for the community. In that sense, they have included some tools that will help developers to create more online content such as WebGL for 3D graphics, new ES6 functions for online applications or support for background-attachment, and local for having more control about scrolling elements. You can develop different kinds of add-ons in case you want to collaborate with Mozilla’s community, thereby increasing the functionality of the software. It also includes Scratchpad for testing Javascript snippets quickly and directly with Mozilla Firefox.

For users, security which features with anti-malware features is a relief regarding external viruses or to protect your own privacy. The navigation in protected websites (HTTPs) has been reinforced, securing your connections to those kinds of servers. The bookmarks section has also been modified, allowing better management of the websites you include on the list. Besides, you can configure Mozilla Firefox to read RSS feeds by selecting this add-on in the Preferences menu. That way, the toolbar will appear to the side. You can also update the application automatically in order to save time looking for new versions in the future.
