Mozilla Firefox

21 May

Mozilla Firefox (originally named Phoenix and then for a moment known as Mozilla Firebird) is a cross-platform web browser for free which was developed by the Mozilla Foundation and hundreds of volunteers. Version 3.0 was released on June 17, 2008.

Before the release of its version 1.0 on November 9, 2004, Firefox has gained a very good reception from the media, including Forbes and the Wall Street Journal. [6] [7] With more than 5 million downloads in the first 12 days of its release, and 6 million to 24 November 2004, Firefox 1.0 is one of the free software, open-source (open source) is the most widely used among home users . [8]

Through Firefox, the Mozilla Foundation aims to develop a small web browser, fast, simple, and so could be developed (apart from the Mozilla Suite is the larger). Firefox has become the main focus of the Mozilla development along with the e-mail client Mozilla Thunderbird, and has replaced the Mozilla Suite as the official release of the Mozilla Foundation’s browser.

Among the popular features of Firefox is a pop-up blocker already installed in it, and a development mechanism (extension) to add additional functionality. Although these features are already available for a while in the other browsers such as Mozilla Suite and Opera, Firefox is the first browser to gain acceptance in this magnitude. Firefox is targeted to receive about 10% market share of Microsoft Internet Explorer output (the most popular browser with a large margin (per 2004) until the year 2005, which has been called by many as the year the return of the browser wars. [9]

Firefox has gained attention as an alternative to Internet Explorer since the Explorer has been criticized because of accusations ketidakamanannya-parties who agree on this assumption says Explorer does not follow Web standards, using ActiveX components are often dangerous, and its weakness against the installation of spyware and malware-and the lack of features Firefox users are considered important. [10] Microsoft itself has responded that they did not consider if the issues concerning the security and features of Explorer to worry about. [11]

Version 2.0 was released on October 24, 2006. In this 2.0 version, Mozilla has a bug (weakness) is going to “crash” if you open a web page (web page) is very large and had JavaScript, but this has been fixed. [12]
