  1. I am just trying out the new release of IE7, and find it interesting all the debate about this release versus the Firefox download. One of the most interesting aspects of the IE vs. Firefox battle is the development of the ecosystem of extensions or add-ons. It’s not just about bugs and features. Right now Firefox had a great advantage in this space but you can see Microsoft trying to catch up.
    I noticed an interesting extension called Trailfire, set up as a recommended download for IE7. See link:

    I think the ecosystem for Firefox and IE will decide who wins this battle. What do you think?

  3. I’ve recently converted to Firefox after years on Internet Explorer, and I’m very pleased with the browser so far. I haven’t downloaded any addons yet, but I may do one day.

  5. Hey,Opera is faster.
    Opera 9 doesn’t have any banners anymore and it just rocks with the ease of use. Firefox with the ‘fasterfox’ extension is very good though.

  7. There might have been other browser before with close buttons on tabs, but Safari introduced them in its version 1.x. Opera added them in Opera 8 (with the option to revert to the real MDI buttons like it always had had). The Firefox team is the only one that did some serious usability research some time ago, and the change in Firefox 2 is the result of this research.

    Saved sessions (autorestore after crash, or always if you want) have been with Opera since Opera 4 or 5. Omniweb on Mac also has extensive session features. Firefox 2 is now getting some – and IE7 doesn’t have them, nor Safari, IIANM.

  9. @diego,

    Yes IE7 and Safari had those style of tabs first, but no one is saying anything towards them. No one is saying who was first. Besides I think Opera was the first, and props to them for that.
