Firefox 1.0 Released

Firefox 1.0 Released -- The Mozilla Organization has released version 1.0 of Firefox, an open-source Web browser. The news is a little more exciting for Windows users looking for better security than is provided by Internet Explorer, but Mac users will find that the Mac OS X version is as snappy as Safari with a few extra features thrown in. For example, new Live Bookmarks read RSS feeds and provide a list of current articles (such as weblog entries or news updates); the Search field includes other search engines besides Google; and Firefox offers the capability to install third-party toolbars (such as Amazon's A9 search toolbar). Firefox 1.0 is a free 8.6 MB download, and requires Mac OS X 10.1 or later. [JLC]
