Mozilla

Firefox 3.0, the resurgent browser developer has come of age with its latest

offering. The new browser has been downloaded well over 8 million times in 24

hours as against the developer's target of 5 million and has entered the

Guinness Book of World Records for maximum number of downloads in a single day

of download history. There was overwhelming support, both from the United

States and the Euro zone with downloads in excess of 2.5 million apiece.

The

response for the finished Mozilla browser is largely on account of meticulous

care the foundation has taken in providing solutions to expert suggestions. The

new version was delivered after three and half years of extensive research and

development which included of six months of public testing. The highly mutated

form of earlier versions of the browser is set to change the way users organize

and search the sites, they frequent more often. Back in late 1990's, the

Netscape, the first browser developer virtually lost out to Microsoft's

Internet Explorer, but with the third avatar of Firefox, they are making an

attempt to garner the past glory.

After

America Online took over Netscape, they created a non-profit Mozilla Foundation

in 2003. The first offering from them, the Firefox, itself was able to catch

the imagination of the internet buffs. It is estimated, Firefox has 200 million

users worldwide prior to the launch of the new version and the numbers are

still growing rapidly. Millions of users had downloaded Firefox and started

using the browser in lieu of the default browser Internet Explorer clearly

indicates its user-friendliness and application.

The

new Firefox 3.0 browser is faster than Firefox 2.0. The latest versions of

Internet Explorer, which has 75% share among the web users and other leading

browser developers including Opera and Safari do not match the speed rendered

by the latest Firefox version. Like its earlier version, this too has added

security features to expunge any misuse.

It has in-built features to instantly detect phishing and malware

forays. Moreover, one's computer's resources are less drained while navigating

on the internet with Firefox 3.0.

Consequently,

Microsoft also unveiled the public test version of the latest edition of

Internet Explorer, version 8.0. So far Firefox 3.0 has no competitor in terms

of effectiveness and efficiency to strike any comparison. But the fine tuned

edition of Internet Explorer which is expected to be released by the end of

this year may become a potential competitor in the e-space. It is learned that

even Apple's Safari browser has shrugged off its previous image of providing

surf solutions to its own devices, and would be extending its compatible

browsing services to other devices as well.

Stiff

challenges in future is likely to improve the efficiency of browsers especially

the subsequent versions of Firefox, which already offers exploring of multiple

tabs or windows, complex pages and lots of embedded content without crashing.

The exciting response on the download of new version, the most customizable

browser ever to hit the net will certainly prompt the Mozilla Foundation to

improve on.

When Dean Hachamovitch, who heads the Internet

Explorer team, was spurred to comment on the Firefox success, said that, they

loved competition and the pressures have upped the ante of his team

qualitatively and quantitatively. Likewise, John Lilly the CEO of Mozilla

credited the success to the users and remarked a committed, energized global

community could do amazing things when they unite for a cause. Analysts predict

that the simmering truth would be, the coming days or months will trigger stiff

competition in the browser developer space. They further added, it would enable

especially users from e-commerce arena since they too functions on the same

punch-line 'fast delivery'.
