    Having used Firefox since its infancy, I've been amazed at the progression of both the program and the organization dedicated to its growth. The web is changing rapidly and Firefox is trying its hardest to accommodate. With Firefox 4, performance has been fine-tuned to become as fast as possible while still retaining the complex frameworks that it's famous for.

    The user interface has been overhauled, featuring the best of Chrome/ium and Opera. Implementing long-awaited CSS and HTML standards, Firefox is becoming fully compliant as well.

    The best web browser. Here's to hoping that it destroys Internet Explorer completely!

    Firefox 4 beta 10 is fantastic. Much much faster than before. It also feels very slick.

    Version 4 is much faster and simply a better browsing experiencing when compared to older versions. I was truly surprised at browsing speed. Doesn't seem bloated anymore...

    FIrefox, after more than a year of getting pummeled by Chromium/Chrome, has definitely got its mojo back.

    Certain addons can cause ram usage to sky rocket over time with firefox. The latest version 5 seems to handle ram better than previouse versions.

    Version 6 is improved in many ways. For Ubuntu, I notice Flash plays w/o tearing or blocking. in other words, correctly. One addon is not compatible, not one I use much. The feel is smoother. These are initial impressions.

    I'm not sure why but Flash 11 seems to be noticeably faster on Firefox than on Chromium. The speed is otherwise good also. Seems like Firefox has caught up to its rival.

    The only downside is that the Linux version doesn't have the neat new menu button.

    Simply the best.
    In this era of browser war all the browser are up-to-date and there hardly any difference.
    So instead of using 2 or 3 browser just use stable and fast Firefox.
    Also it's by default in Ubuntu. So don't go for chromium or opera or any other browser.
    They are all the same.

    Although a little slower than Chrome (and I mean only a little), the greater ease of use, stability and feature set - without even mentioning the huge library of extensions - means it is still the best browser out there.

    If you're reading this, you probably already have it installed, so give it a try. It's worth it.

    Although this browser is clean, user-friendly and quick, it lacks the time-saving intuitive 'things' which chrome / chromium posesses. For instance, automatically completing and loading web addresses typed in the address bar by default. Still, can't fault it really. It's a good browser.

    Now that it is updated regularly on Ubuntu with the new 6 week release cycle, it is the best browser available.
    It is more robust and feature rich than Chrome, just as fast, and crashes way less often. Plus, it doesn't have spybots or other data-gathering stuff built in. That's definitely a plus, and puts it ahead of the pack.

    I gave Chromium a chance. I used it for a couple of months, but I have returned to Firefox because it is just plain better. I don't have any defining reason. For awhile I was using both, and then I noticed that I was using Firefox more and more. So I finally deleted Chromium. Now I'm free, as in freedom. And if I wanted to be superfree, I would use Ice Weasel.

    Ever since I found out about Firefox back when I had a windows computer I never went back to Internet Explorer. I had and uncertified version of windows so I could never update my Internet Explorer and then one I could not even use Youtube anymore because I had an outdated version of Internet Explorer. I was so mad till my friends told me about Firefox. Because of Firefox we now have multiple tabs and they have even made a mobile version for phones. Firefox has did things that other browsers did not want to do. I hope one day Firefox overtakes Internet Explorers dominance of the market share.

    Regarding the address bar, I've always found Firefox's Awesome Bar to be superior to Chrome's Omnibox. You can also disable caching in Firefox, whereas you currently can't in Chrome. That's big plus for a Web Developer such as myself.

  • Desmond Potts Oct 26, 2011

    Firefox gets a lot of glowing reviews, but lets be honest. When I'm looking at web pages I don't need a lot of junk add-on and plug-ins. I'm on the internet to look at web-pages, not plug-ins for applications I have installed.

    Firefox went from something good to something way overloaded with BLOATWARE. You're surfing the web, not loading a app to load plug-ins for applications you already have and NEED to have installed.

    While you can strip away all the junk you're left with a broswer that is not that great, not that fast, and not that powerful.

  • Warren Sever Nov 8, 2011

    Never really bought into the whole illusion that Firefox is any better, certainly know for a fact that is NOT more secure or faster, so it is the very first thing I am un-installing from my Ubuntu setup.

  • Matt Dec 6, 2011

    Unusable thanks to the inability to use sun-java instead of the useless and buggy openjdk. I uninstalled openjdk but it won't let me install the sun-java plugin. Each firefox update seems to break more stuff. I'm reluctantly using chrome now even though I hate chrome's interface.

  • Feb 6, 2011

    Mozilla does give you the choice to participate in Feedback. Just disable it from the Addons Manager or hit Feedback -> All Your User Studies... -> Settings and uncheck everything.

    Can't wait until the final mockup for Firefox 4 is implanted though :D

  • mmnz Feb 10, 2011

    So i am reviewing firefox because there seems to be no reviews for it thus far?

    Firefox is a modern and solid open source web browser. A sound default choice for Ubuntu. For many people the main selling point is its excellent and extensive range of add-ons. But all the same it does the bread and butter awesomely. Also, the Mozilla Foundation is a great proponent of usability.

  • Hypercube Feb 20, 2011

    A quick, reliable browser with lots of features and extensions. Highly recommended.

  • Matt Sturgeon Feb 23, 2011

    Firefox 4 has an intuitive design, is great looking, and much faster than previous versions. Where Firefox really excels though is the thousands of extensions, plugins, themes and "personas" to make Firefox truly "yours".
