Happy 6th birthday, Firefox!

Happy 6th Birthday, Firefox…

Firefox celebrates its sixth birthday today, with Firefox’s 1.0 having been released exactly on this date, November 9th 2004.

On that day, Firefox made the Web more secure, faster, standards-compliant — and, most importantly, it made the Web open.

In 6 years, it has become one of the most important open source projects – from giving users the world over a safe, secure and stable browsing experience to ensuring wider adoption of common web standards through increased market share.

Before Firefox there was only Internet Explorer and Netscape — a war that had no winners and many scrolling marquee losers. Firefox changed everything with its radically different, ‘build a better browser and they will come’ approach. And today, with some 30% of the market and the richest feature set of any browser, that approach has paid off.
