Firefox: It's not just an Eastwood movie

It's been out in preview mode for a while, as its rapidly growing community of users can attest, but today marks the official release of Mozilla Firefox 1.0, the most user-friendly and efficient Internet browser on the planet. (Trust me — I've tried about a half-dozen of them.)

For most people, it takes only a few minutes of using Firefox to be impressed with it. Its built-in pop-up stopper and spyware buster are worth the price of admission all by themselves, and would be even if that admission price weren't free. (And you know the SwanShadow credo: "If it's free, it's for me.") Add in a superb user interface that incorporates tabbed browsing and built-in Google search — again, well worth the money you won't pay to use them — and Firefox is one sweet piece of open source software.

If you're tired of the hassle and security risk of Internet Exploder, hie yourself over to the Mozilla Web site and grab yourself up some Firefox love. After a taste of Mozilla, you'll never settle for less 'zilla again.

(The title's no joke. There really was such an Eastwood movie.)
