Too stinkin' tired to post, but I just had to get this up.
Hellelujah!!!! FireFox has been officially released today.
Yup, it's out of beta with its official Firefox 1.0 release.
That gurgling sound you hear? That's Internet Exploder circling the bowl. I, for one, will be doing everything I can to help finish the flush. Kiss your browser share goodbye, Microsoft**.
I haven't had to time to even look at it yet, but will do so tomorrow and write some more about why I personally think this is such a big deal. My congratulations to all those involved with the project.
**Think I'm kidding? Microsoft has made it perfectly plain that the only way to get the ongoing security improvements it's still desperately attempting (and for the most part failing) to implement in IE is to be running WindowsXP. Does MS really think those millions of Windows98 users out there are going to pay several hundred dollars just to get an Internet Explorer upgrade so their system doesn't blow up under spyware/virus loads? When they can have a vastly superior browser for free? It's just an education issue now.
