Firefox is finally hitting 1.0 on Tuesday morning. I remember going to the Mozilla 1.0 launch party in San Francisco a couple years ago, but Firefox 1.0 feels like something much more meaningful. You’ve got a ready-for-primetime browser that is better than anything else out there in all aspects. I volunteer to install it for everyone I know and everyone (especially those trapped in IE on Windows) comes away happy.
This is the culmination of all the work jwz started back in 1998, to make the then-dying browser Netscape open source. Now that Firefox has the virtual lead in features and quality of experience, hopefully they’ll continue to build from here and grow their lead over competitors.
