Mozilla - Hall of Fame App Pick of the Week

[0 to 10 lights; 10 = perfect!]
Mozilla is the open-source basis of the commercial Netscape browser, but there are a couple good reasons to pick it over Netscape. First, Mozilla allows you to easily block images (ads) from any server you wish as well as eliminating those unrequested pop-up windows (ads) that can make browsing so annoying. Mozilla is also a "thinner" package than Netscape, as it doesn't include things like Netscape Radio and an instant messenger client.

But the number one reason why Mozilla is in the Hall of Fame is its creative tabbed browsing feature. Normally when you visit a large number of websites during a browsing session, you wind up with a number of open windows on the screen. In Mozilla, you can choose to have only one window with a number of tabs across the top for each site. Using this feature, you can open links on the current page in new "background" tabs, so you can finish what you're reading before exploring the related material. Think of an Excel workbook with spreadsheet tabs across the bottom of its screen and you've got the concept down.

Is Mozilla perfect? Of course not (I don't think there's a perfect OS X browser yet). But it's fast, free, customizable, stable, open source, and it works on the vast majority of websites I visit, and it has those awesome tabs ... all of which is enough to earn Mozilla a spot in the Hall of Fame.

Yep..It is a fab browser - Since I started using it, I haven't had to use anyone/thing else.(unless Safari is already open for LimeWire!) I am still exploring all the add ons it has to offer and it is all promising.
Anyway, I will be watching this thread to listen out for any downfalls that maybe or not be associated with Mozilla - Information please!

One must have a good memory to be able to keep the promises one makes.
( & IT IS about the oil.)
