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've been using firefox since it was called Firebird, and I remember using it for the first time. I couldn't believe how much faster it was at loading pages than IE. Tab browsing was still new, so that was a godsend and the fact that it was open source was just gravy.

For me it was the fact that it wasn't IE more than any other goodies it included.
