Mozilla Firefox

Filed under: — 4:02 am

I know that a blog entry about Mozilla is nearly as much of a cliché as a pop song about love, but I have to say I’m very impressed with the recently renamed Mozilla Firefox browser.

Firefox is quickly becoming by default browser for routine administration tasks. Its particular advantage is that it doesn’t forget HTTP passwords randomly like Internet Explorer does, and it remembers usernames and passwords for the various sites I log into more conveniently than IE.

Also, I previously mentioned some bookmarklets that make development easier in Mozilla. The Web Developer Extensions take this idea one step further with a toolbar that can disable various features, clear visited links, outline page elements and more. The EditCSS extension adds the ability to make changes to a stylesheet and view the results instantly. This is definitely my new favorite browser for web development.
