Firefox turns 4

By   |  November 10, 2008

Four years ago yesterday, Mozilla announced the release of Firefox 1.0.

Four years on and Firefox has grown to a point where it now commands 20 percent market share and has introduced users to a number of new features, many of which we could now not live without.

Some of the most popular features in Firefox include pop-up blocking, fraud protection, integrated search and tabbed browsing. Firefox also changed the rules when it came to designing a new browser by stripping the base release to core functionality and allowing extension makers to add optional functionality. And with the first extension announced for Fennec, Mozilla looks ready to continue this on mobile platforms.

To celebrate, download a copy of the Firefox 3.1 beta 1 release and see what Mozilla has in store for users.

    It’s a good product but takes soooo long to launch for the first time compared with IE 7(on Windows XP). Any ideas about this?

    One feature that IE 7 has that Firefox doesn’t is in the selection of text. If you move the cursor to say the middle of a word and start dragging, the whole word is selected once the cursor reaches the beginning of the next word. It’s a very useful feature that Firefox doesn’t have–I suppose I should report it as a wish-list item.

    The reason that IE takes less time to start up compared to FF is that quite a lot of libraries that IE depends on, are an integral part of windows (quite frankly, no one knows why). Therefore, there is less to load into memory when the IE-icon is clicked.
