“We’re building a better Internet” is the slogan at Mozilla Firefox, and after years of using the browser I can definitely see why. One of the best things about Mozilla Firefox is the obvious human element. From the moment you open the program, you can tell that this browser was made by people who really cared about what they were doing, and that’s what makes Firefox truly unique.
Firefox is my primary browser, and I doubt that’s going to change anytime soon.
Mozilla Firefox comes with a ton of features, many you’ll find with other browsers (tabbed browsing, download manager, bookmarks, things like that), but what sets Firefox apart are the features you won’t find elsewhere. Here’s a look at some of my favorite Firefox features:
Firefox is really easy to set up, and really simple to use. I’ve never had an easier time getting started with a new browser, and I doubt I ever will.
Firefox is super fast. While other browsers have some issues with lag and slow loading, I’ve never once had a problem like that with Firefox.
Firefox comes with some great privacy settings, including Private Browsing. Private Browsing lets you browse in a private session where cookies, history, and everything else tied to your browsing disappear as soon as you exit your browser. This is useful for buying gifts online, as well as browsing websites you might not want other people who have access to the computer to know about.
Firefox allows you to fully customize the browser with third-party plug-ins. You can set up awesome add-ons like ad blockers, games, and more with the click of a button.
Firefox is safe. Firefox completely blocks third-party cookies by default, meaning websites won’t have access to your private data unless you specifically allow them to. This is a great feature for anyone who wants to keep their information secure no matter what.
If you’re running Windows, your operating system should be Windows XP or above, meaning anything between Windows XP and the current Windows 10 will work just fine.
As for hardware, you’re going to be looking for a few different things. You’ll need:
If you’re running Mac, your operating system should be Mac OS X 10.6 or above, meaning anything between Mac OS X 10.6 and the current Mac OS X 10.10 will do the job.
As always, there are also a handful of hardware requirements:
If you meet all of these OS-specific system requirements, Firefox should run great on your computer.
Mozilla Firefox is personally my favorite browser, and I feel like I’ve outlined why pretty well. Between the awesome features, the flexible system requirements, and the distinctly human feel of the program, I can’t recommend it enough. Your Mozilla Firefox download is only a click away.
