Firefox!

Firefox 1.0 Final has been released!
 
 Go to http://getfirefox.com/ (if the current load has subsided) and download Firefox (a web browser) to make the web a better place. IE has outstayed its welcome.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 I am obliged to point out that ocPortal is neutral on the browser front.

The one thing I'm never able to find on Firefox's website is a changelog - it isn't clear what the difference is between the PR version and 1.0 final.

There you go ;) I downloaded Firefox 1.0, went to the help screen and found a link to the above.

Opera seems to have the most problems correfctly displaying web pages out of Firefox, IE and Opera, reason enough to switch in my opinion.

IE is the least web-standards compliant and has had no major code updates along those lines in years. They still do not support transparent .png graphics, otherwise EVERY web designer would be using them right now to create far more visually pleasing websites. That and it's Microsoft and buggy as you like is another reason to switch.

The main reason to switch is the tool that you can download from the Mozilla website for Firefox that allows you to click a button and it will show you exactly what CSS style is used where on the page - overlaying it onto the page if I read the documentation correctly. Surely the most useful tool for anyone skinning ANY application that has a lot of CSS.

Hi all,

It is a matter of openion at the end. I didn't like FireFox that much, but what I really liked was Maxthon MyIE2, as we all here like to share what we find interesting, I had to tell you about it.

Regards

Using Mozilla since a year and i find it better then IE.
What i really like are the tabs u can use instead of opening other pages in a new window.

I'm using IE, Mozilla, and Mozilla Firefox here for testing, and Mozilla Firefox for general use.
These are the CSS tags I found not working in IE, that work in Firefox, and this really bugs me, as it limits website design:

Non-supported CSS1:
1. display (partially supported)
2. list-style-type (Get this, it worked in IE 5.5, but NOT IE6, as in from full to no support!)
3. word-spacing (partially supported)

13. cue-after
14. cue-before
15. elevation
16. font-size-adjust
17. font-stretch
18. Frequency Units
19. left (partial support)
20. marker-offset
21. marks

25. min-width
26. orphans
27. outline
28. outline-color
