PostHeaderIcon Speaking of Fire Fox…

There’s a spiffy article about the new Firefox beta at

Before I get into it, I will say, after a recent experience working in an environment where all Web work was done using IE 6 with most of it being research, Firefox could go back a version or two and it would STILL rock!

I noticed the article’s author seemed concerned that FF would become top-heavy with new features that are currently available as add-ons. Well, as an enthusiastic but not overly technical FF user, I have to say I’m not worried. It may make me a traitor to the Mozilla movement, but I hate FF add-ons. I hate that little pop-up bar asking if I want to update every third time I open the application, and I am hesitant to use them because the ones I had for Thunderbird worked out SO well (that plinking noise? that was the sarcasm dripping…).

More details, in a little easier to understand format, can be found in the article about the original beta release from November.

Check it out for yourself and let us know what you think.
