I am one in a million, honestly. The evidence is there in that Firefox logo — yup, I got it. Some one million people have downloaded the Firefox 1.5 browser since it was launched on Nov 29, and I am one of them.
Not that I am about to cast off Internet Explorer. Two is better than one, I think. Both, of course, want to be the one and only, but we are talking about browsers, not sweethearts. It’s best to have an alternative.
This may not sound like a raving Firefox fan talking, but I am attracted, believe me, or why should I want to get my hands on it as soon as it was released? Devoted or attracted — which is my default browser? Hmm, that could be subject to change.
Internet pundits raving about the new browser nevertheless point to a big problem. Firefox is the darling of the avant garde, the early adopters and bloggers, but yet to be embraced by the mainstream. When the Internet Explorer already pre-installed on Windows PCs does a pretty good job, why get another browser? Why indeed? For adventure, to experience the difference! Viva, Firefox!
