Firebird is great

Finally out now is Mozilla Firebird.

I’ve been using Mozilla then Phoenix as my default browser for a while, but now with Firebird being based on Mozilla 1.3 aka Netscape 7, which addresses a number of my complaints, I have nothing more to ask for. It’s small, it’s fast, it isn’t ugly. It’s got tabbed browsing, and type-ahead-search in the page.

Except that it’s going to be interesting to see how much uptake it’s going to get. MSIE has a monopoly in browsers, and even though Mozilla Firebird has a zero price, it’s hard to compete with Microsoft’s distribution channel.
