freeware, internet browser




the site can be a little intimidating. I imagine this post will be around a while, though as I write this the latest final release version is 1.4:


http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/release...4-installer.exe windows

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/release...-1.4-sea.tar.gz linux

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/release...achO-1.4.dmg.gz OSX



it's available on every useful platform .. windows, max, linux to name just a few.


Hey, thatguy, what's so great about mozilla. you mean other than it's not-micro$oft? :dance: it's a ground up construction to be a solid browser. it won't make you coffer. and unlike IE, in the extremely unlikely event of a crash, it won't take down windows with it. :-)




yes, and there's more. cruise over to http://MozDev.org for FREE addons to make it even more powerful.


oh, I forgot to mention that mozilla has native popup blocking (see also http://proxomitron.info)


mozilla is a suite of applications a browser, a chat client, an email client, an html composer, and then some.






if you want merely a rock solid browser get FireBird:



built on the same gecko engine technology as mozilla but no suite.




the stand alone mail client I'll mention, ThunderBird, is not yet mature enough for me to recomend although I use it myself in conjunction with the email client in mozilla -- that is when I'm not using Outlook and Disruptor OL ;)






### must have mozilla addons include ###


themes .. I hate them but most people love them:



multizilla -- get the true power of tabbed browsing





optimoz mouse gestures -- use your mouse to perform tasks








this thatguy is here to help

I don't like the Mozillia software... but I do use Firefox (browser) and Thunderbird (email) programs. I have been using them both for over a year. I love 'em!

I've got FireFox at least for website testing purposes.

I use firefox on my local computer for creating thumbnails of URLs via a webinterface from a remote computer. The reason I use FireFox is because of the PopUp blocking. (If my routine get's a popup (with IE), the VBSCRIPT can't close all the windows and then the whole 'process' doesn't work to good after that.)

Rob, that should be more than OK. My dad's previous notebook (an AMD K6-2 @ 400 MHz with 192 MB of RAM) handled Firefox and Thunderbird nicely... :rolleyes:

Perhaps you have another problem?

Firefox works great on mine. Only just started trying it. I have something like 1.1 ghrz with 768 ram

What OS are you using, Rob? BSD? Perhaps it's some issue Firefox and the BSD you're using?

Also, are you using the 0.8 release or a nightly build? If you're using a nightly build, try getting the 0.8 release version.


Anyway, if you have some programs that do what you need, forget about it :D
