Spread FireFox


As most of my friends and co-workers know, I've been advocating the non-use of MSIE for years now due to all nonstop security issues that keep coming up and the non W3C compliance that Microsoft constantly wants to do.

There are lots of alternative browsers to use, such as links (not lynx), Netscape, Opera, Konqueror, Mozilla... then Phoenix came along.

Well, since the very first build of Phoenix came out a few years ago, I've been using nightlies, and now after several name changes, tonnes of bug fixes, and feature updates, it's finally at the point of being close to a 1.0 release. I think this is more a symbolic thing really, as it has been an extremely usable day-to-day browser for a long time now, and really has been "1.0" for a long time now.

So, here you go... go Get Firefox! and spread the news!

PS. Although Firefox is my main browser, and has been for a long time, #2 spot goes to links, an extremely fast and excellent text based browser that I use almost as much as Firefox.
