Editorial Hands up if you use Firefox. Have used it? Know about it? Heard of it? 'Sites up and down the World Wide Web today will be celebrating five years of Firefox. When I sat down to write this I worried about having to list the history of its features and landmark events and the news of the past five years. Other sites will be comprehensively doing that, there is nothing I can add to that list that Google can't surmise. Instead I will be telling you what Google does not know, my story of Firefox and what Firefox has meant to all of us.

I was using Firefox back when it was called Firebird. It was great even back then, a refreshing change from IE (horrible!). Firebird was just faster, simpler and actually fun to use.

I still use Firefox all the time, but I worry about it's future. It's become a little sluggish and seems to have run out of new ideas. I'll probably stick with Firefox as long as they support the same massive library of extensions though.
