I just posted a list of articles about our favorite web browser, due to be released tomorrow, and now here’s some more. Get busy reading, dang it!

(And remember - you may see some stuff in here about Firefox’s kissin’ cousins, Thunderbird and Mozilla, as well.)

Mozilla Firefox: It is Microsoft vs. Online community
”November 9 is the D-Day when Firefox announces its presence to whole world, through a full-page advertisement in a major newspaper in USA and other online campaigns that they are ready to rock Microsoft. If they can succeed in upstaging Internet Explorer by dropping its usage numbers even more, maybe the next giant step would be to launch Linux in a similar ways!”
Firefox Is a Worthy Adversary
”I can’t think of a very good reason for people who are, for whatever reason, unhappy with IE not to use Firefox. And if it makes you feel better to make some sort of an anti-Microsoft statement through browsing, go for it.”
(Scott here. David Coursey in the above article has obviously never heard of a little thing called “Firefox extensions”, so his bitching isn’t entirely correct).
Microsoft’s Worst Nightmare
”Firefox, a free open-source browser that loads twice as fast as Internet Explorer, has already been downloaded 2.7 million times, and it has siphoned off nearly 2 percent of Microsoft’s browser market share, now at 93.7 percent. Along the way, Firefox is fast becoming the browser of choice for anyone fed up with all the nasty things polluting the Web (pop-ups and viruses and spyware, oh my!).”
FireFox is Looking Foxy
”... you might be forgiven if you got the sense that this thing just might be for real and could very well slice into Microsoft’s share of the browser market. Considering that IE has been dormant for at least two years, and might be dormant for another two years until the next Windows is released, it’s beginning to seem that FireFox has some real momentum.”
Google to back Microsoft browser foe?
”The Firefox browser is looking for allies in its quest to challenge Microsoft’s dominant Internet Explorer and Web users are buzzing about a potential link-up with search company Google.”
