New Firebir...Err...Firefox

february 9, 2004

Well, Mozilla's Firebird is now Firefox. Complete with a 0.8 version update, the Mozilla project has changed the name of their browser for the third time. This time it is called Firefox and they promise that it will stick -- Firebird got some database people's feathers ruffled since it was the same name as their database project. So this time around the Mozilla group made sure that Firefox was free and OK to use. Don't forget to go grab the 0.8 version of Firefox, it has some nice additions (that most of us have been using since we have been getting nightly builds). So changes include a new download manager and for MacOS X people a pinstripe theme to match the OS -- too bad the widgets still look like Un*x widgets. I can't wait till Firefox hits 1.0!
