Firefox 3

Flying out of the ashes.


Buy It

Try It

Bill Gates smugly walked into a courtroom in Washington to answer charges about pushing Netscape out of the marketplace. He didn't really care - he'd already got rid of them. What was to follow was at most a rap on the knuckles.

No one expected Mozilla to survive. But they did. And yesterday they released version 3 of their Firefox browser and things are looking great.

9,349,719

At time of writing this evening Moz have had 9,349,719 downloads of Firefox 3. That's in about 30 hours. Moz are reporting they got about 8,000,000 in the first twenty four hour period. Their goal was 5,000,000 - so they exceeded their own expectations. This rounds out to over 4,000 downloads per minute. Constantly.

And it's great to see a product that challenges Microsoft do so well.

Firefox 3 for OS X

Firefox 3 for OS X not only performs better than before but it's actually starting to beat Safari at its own game. Certainly Safari's still a lot leaner and meaner but Firefox is catching up. And in terms of appearance Firefox simply looks a lot better.

And Firefox runs on all releases of 10.4 - not only the latest or 10.4.9 as is often seen. It runs on 10.4.0 - and of course the recent Leopard 10.5 releases as well.

Awesome Bar

Firefox 3 has something the developers call the 'awesome bar'. It's a browser location bar but it's so much more. Type in keywords and the awesome bar searches through your bookmarks and comes up with suggestions.

As you assemble sites you want to bookmark and click the 'star' to the right on the location bar Firefox 3 puts these in a special 'unsorted' drawer for later retrieval. When you get around to sorting through and filing these bookmarks you can also add tags to make it easier to find them later.

Identity Info

Websites can today offer up 'identity information'. Whether they do or not Firefox is always able to tell you something them - and in connection with this info you can set how you want to treat cookies, JavaScript, plugins, etc. It's the 'favicon.ico' that normally sits inside the location bar proper which Firefox now places outside and to the left - by clicking on it you get to see the information available through the site itself and Firefox 3.

Firefox for OS X looks and acts more and more like Safari. And this is a Good Thing™. Safari is extremely spartanic and that's an Even Better Thing™.

Footprint

The Firefox 3 footprint is considerable - considerably more than Safari's. This is unavoidable as much of the Firefox code has to be platform independent.

The basic install takes approximately 45 MB disk space.

Surprisingly - happily - there's little waste in this package. A 'cleaned' install is only slightly smaller with eleven files fewer and the TIFFs compressed.

Firefox 3 is also a relatively well behaved app: there are no authentication prompts and it's relatively easy to clean up in case you ever want to uninstall.

Close to Cocoa

Firefox 3 is close to Cocoa - closer than Carbon apps - but it's not all the way there and likely never will be. An example: you can't configure your toolbar with ⌘ and your mouse - you need to drop down the configuration sheet.

And there are Safari features that only now in comparison seem to look good. Such as using the location bar as a sort of progress meter. It seems tacky; it's easy to select over it and ruin the effect; but when Firefox - as most browsers - puts the progress meter way at the bottom of the window, as far away from where you've been looking as it can, you realise how much time and 'work' the Safari method's saved you.

And even if some pundits claim to have seen Firefox 3 outperform Safari it's likely Safari will still seem faster - Safari like to save images until they're fully ready whilst Firefox shows you a bit at a time. And that makes things seem slower. And above all: Apple are readying Safari 4 and with that release it'll be a new ball game again.

Formidable

But more than any other open source platform independent browser ever Firefox really impresses as a product that's really come into its own. Certainly pundits will discover small warts over time. But the Firefox team have done some impressive work. The Firefox team today come across as 'formidable'.

Firefox is a Good Thing™ in the world of web computing. If Firefox gets but a 20% market share that's all right. But it deserves to get a lot more.
