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.

Been my browser since 0.3.

I would credit my introduction to the open/free software world to, what is now, Firefox.

It annoys me that Mozilla have a retarded policy/license that forces Debian to remake Firefox as Iceweasel.

Just aptitude purge iceweasal and install Firefox from Firefox, pretty simple really.

I've been running minefield 64bit nightly build for about 4 months now and it works without incident and is super fast enough on my debian testing box ;)

I don't run things that aren't from Debian's repos.
