Firefox Officially Reignites Browser Wars

The Mozilla Foundation today officially released its open-source browser, Firefox 1.0, but the news won’t come as a surprise to a great many computer users. Since it released its preview version in September, 8 million people have downloaded the super-fast browser, a direct descendant of Netscape.
The Firefox project began about 19 months ago, and the team is proud but not ready to rest. “We feel very good about it,” Ben Goodger, lead engineer for Firefox, told LinuxInsider. “We’re certainly not done working. This is our first big step. We’re thrilled.”
Part of that thrill comes from knowing that this software gives a huge boost to the open-source world.
