FireFox 1.0 Review

It is more than a month I am using the 1.0 release. It is performing well.

It is fast, never crashed so far hence stable and scalable. I have added few Add ons to the browser and some of them are really cool. I liked the one particularly which adds small icon like preview of the web sites in the Google search. It throes some light on if the page you will pen is likely go show up what you are looking for on not.

It works well with all the services I use like YahooGroups, Gmail etc.

During last month I got an opportunity to talk to lot of students in Nasik. I delivered two lectures on “Future of pen Source” and I strongly promoted FireFox in those lectures.

We can use this to blog several different blogger servers too. It comes with a upload tool which also appears to be efficient.
