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.

And you call yourself a geek? Tied by evil Microsoft for many years? I got my first internet connection at home in 2000, Opera was the second software after mIRC I've downloaded. There always was a choise, but people were ignorant.

I see Firefox as evil as IE. I'm a professional webdev from 2002, I still remember Firefox by the names Phoenix (that one was great, but buggy) and Firebird. The problem is that FF is not so W3C compliant as "they say", just like IE it likes to rule your page instead of listening to what you say it to do.

Choose Chrome, choose Safari if you don't like Opera that much. I don't like FF.
