Firefox definitely has a ton of competition these days, but there's no question that the browser has largely taken the world by storm.

Mozilla, the parent company, knows as much, and this week... Read more...

It was always assumed that Mozilla's Firefox browser would one day overtake Microsoft's Internet Explorer in the global browser market, ending IE's reign that began when the Redmond software giant buried Netscape Navigator years ago. But as it turns out, Google Chrome might have a better shot of overtaking IE, and at the rate things are going,... Read more...
Google was in position to deal a mighty blow to Mozilla and its Firefox browser.

Google and Mozilla have a common enemy in the browser wars in Microsoft, but perhaps more importantly, the two software companies have an even greater common interest: money.

Mozilla has been experimenting with an interesting idea called Boot 2 Gecko. Essentially, B2G (as it’s called) is a mobile operating system based on the Web, as opposed to what the project’s wiki calls “proprietary, single-vendor stacks”. Mozilla has something there--open Web technologies indeed increasingly provide... Read more...
Firefox has had its share of problems over the years, the biggest (and most persistent) one being the well documented memory leak. Some suffer from it, others don't. But frequent crashes? If you happen to be experiencing those, check your add-ons, and specifically look for McAfee's SecureScan. According to Mozilla... Read more...
No sooner did Mozilla release its Firefox 7 browser to the public in final form, the browser maker has now made available the next version in beta trim.

If you've ever yelled at your PC, "Holy system resources, Batman! Firefox is chewing through all my memory!," then you may have bigger issues than browser memory leaks (don't worry, we have issues too...). But you're also not alone. Firefox's frustrating tendency to continually grab more memory until you're forced to shut it down and restart... Read more...

The next generation of browser wars is just around the corner.

Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser still claims the lion's share of the browser market, but let's be honest here, it's been so long since IE led the pack in terms of features and performance that Microsoft has forgotten what it's like for users to be genuinely excited about a browser release that doesn't belong to Mozilla, Google, or any...
