Mozilla: Firefox and Thunderbird Discussion ...
An SI Board Since October 2004

Emcee:  Eric L Type:  Moderated
This Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey Discussion Board...

... no longer includes discussion of the Mozilla Suite which is no longer supported. It does include discussion of SeaMonkey, an all-in-one Internet application suite, containing a web browser, a mail and newsgroups client, an HTML editor, web development tools, and an IRC chat client in a single software package.

The Browser Wars ...

... are still in swing The combatants are Google's Chrome, Microsoft's Edge, Mozilla's Firefox, Opera, Safari, and others. The Browser Wars will NOT be fought on this moderated board, however.

This board is dedicated to constructive discussion of the open source, standards based, products from MOZILLA.ORG, and particularly the Firefox Browser, Thunderbird e-mail client, and SeaMonkey. User experiences are welcome.

Mozilla Links:

• Mozilla: mozilla.org

• Firefox Home: mozilla.org

• Ghacks Firefox News | ghacks.net

• Update Add-ons, Extensions and Themes: update.mozilla.org

The first post to this board provides Wikipedia's exceptional overview of Firefox, but that overview is constantly updated and the latest version is always available here: en.wikipedia.org

The second and third posts discuss the 'Rise and Fall of The Netscape Empire' that have led to the Firefox resurrection from Netscape's ashes.

Wikipedia has a very good historical overview of the 'Usage share of web browsers' by years as reported by several analytical research firms including Net Applications (NetMarketShare), StatCounter, W3Counter, Wikimedia, et al here: en.wikipedia.org

I've been using Mozilla's Firefox as my primary and default desktop/laptop browser since mid-2004 when it was still in beta. I've recently adopted the New Edge as my secondary desktop browser. The new 'Edge | Microsoft's Chromium Edge Browser' subject board is here: Subject 60151 . Both Firefox and Edge are also discussed on SI's 'Computer Learning' subject board.
