More Reasons to Try Firefox

It looks like Firefox has caught the eye of the industry. It's more than a browser, it's also a platform for other things. The Extensions facilities in Firefox mean it's really customisable. Better still, companies can produce extensions that provide the user with some application that doesn't require a web site. A good example is someone like Google could make a mail application like Outlook that works with GMail, using Firefox.

fab isn't it!nice to see things going full circle...

the original unix model of small, very specific utilities that can be 'd together to make more powerful functions, all controlled by the shell... so the modern browser provides a core framework under which a wide variety of applications can be connected via an albeit more complex pipe.

it does beg the question though, could firefox become associated with the negative aspects of techniques such as ActiveX being placed in a web page thereby creating an intrinsic relationship between browser and task.the mozilla foundation must ensure that the core deliverable remains agnostic and open.
