The Linux version of one of the most popular and powerful web browser products on the entire Internet, Firefox
The Mozilla Firefox project is a redesign of Mozilla's browser component, written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform, supporting Linux, Android, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. It is a fast, small and very easy-to-use web browser/navigator/explorer that offers many advantages over other similar products, such as the ability to block pop-up windows and the feature-rich tabbed browsing experience.read more
Features at a glanceThe application offers a well designed graphical user interface that integrates search (powered by Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.), and industry leading accessibility with Find As You Type - find links and page text by simply typing. As mentioned before, the Firefox browser features comprehensive pop-up controls, which will keep unwanted advertising off your desktop. A tab browsing mode will let you open several pages in a single window, allowing you to load links in the background without leaving the page you're on.
Powerful plugin architectureMoreover, the Mozilla Firefox web browser includes simplified privacy controls that let you cover your tracks more effectively, a streamlined browser window that allows you see more of the page than any other web browser, while at the same time being more configurable. A large variety of free downloadable extensions and themes that add specific functionality and visual changes to the browser are available to users from the official Mozilla website.
Features a Private ModeThe Private Mode, the ability to Pin tabs, which will always be there when you need them (even after a restart), the powerful Firefox Sync functionality that helps users to keep all of their passwords, bookmarks, browsing history, preferences, tabs, and add-ons in perfect sync across multiple devices, and much more other amazing features are all part of the world’s best web browser, Mozilla Firefox.
Better than Google Chrome and OperaBecause the Opera and Google Chrome web browsers are now based on Chromium, which has a poor collection of extensions, the Mozilla Firefox web browser became the number one choice for many Linux-based operating systems, including Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, openSUSE, Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and others.
Softpedia uses Mozilla FirefoxHere at Softpedia, we use the Mozilla Firefox web browser everyday on multiple computers with different hardware configurations. The application works exceptionally and it does the job very well, helping us to do our work much better than if we were using a different web surfing product. We strongly recommend to use the Mozilla Firefox web browser for all your Internet surfing needs on a daily basis. You will not regret it!
