While we don't generally condone mob-like behavior, we believe it's alright to make an exception for exceptional cases. Take Mozilla Firefox for example; it's one of the greatest products released in our time, providing new innovative ways to browse the web, a community driven by thousands of add-ons, and oodles more security than the majority of other browsers. See a condensed list of fixes and changes as well as an update to their race to beat the Guinness world record for downloads.

From TechCrunch, you have:


  • Much faster load times

  • Fixed memory leak problem in Firefox 2

  • An "Awesome Bar" (aka smart location bar) that suggests sites you've visited before or bookmarked when you type a URL into the address bar.

  • Better security against phishing and malware

  • One-click bookmarking

  • Offline capabilities

  • Built-in spell-check and session restore capabilities (like Firefox 2)

  • Cool zoom-in feature

  • Looks better on a Mac
