I downloaded Mozilla Firebird 0.7 tonight. It’s a nice browser, and a serious contender for my default browser. I’ve been using the full Mozilla distribution for over a year now, but I must admit it is big, often slow, and chock full of things I don’t need like email, html editing and a chat client. Firebird is lean and mean, and after a bit of a hassle installing plug-ins, I like it a great deal. I’ll be taking it for a test drive this week and we’ll see if I switch.
