Who has time anymore these days to be waiting on your Internet browser to be loading sites with embedded videos, java, multi-media, large photos, graphics, widgets and plug-ins etc?
The faster your browser, the happier you’ll be. The newest version of the Mozilla Firefox browser won’t disappoint you. Yes, Google’s Chrome is becoming an awesome competitor and even Safari on the MAC has some awesome features, that’s why I use all three but my main workhorse as a power-user on both PC and MAC is Firefox.
Don’t get caught with the old out-dated versions, keep your browsers current and updated.
Mozilla Firefox was created and made to make the web a better place and for the customer experience to be more pleasurable and memorable. Can you say that about your current browser if it’s not Firefox? All you Internet Explorer users out there may not know what you’re missing till you try it? It has great speed, a new look, and they’ve added even more awesomeness.
Take a chance, make the plunge, download Firefox for free and see for yourself.

It’s Finally Here! The Google Chrome Browser for MAC users may just be faster than Safari, FireFox, and the other Browsers available for MAC. Today came the announcement that you can Download Google Chrome, and take it for a spin. At first glance, Google Chrome is “Lightning Fast” on the MAC. It loads fast, VERY FAST, and has a clean and simple layout. Looks like it could be a mighty contender in the Browser arena.
