So...what is Mozilla?

Postby Melo255 » Sat Oct 09, 2004 5:15 pm

I heard Mozilla mentioned a bunch of times over at the Baseball Cafe during my time there whenever someone complained about their browser or spyware or whatever someone else then mentioned that they used Mozilla and didn't have any problems. Since I've come to the dark side I've seen it mentioned a few times as well. My interest is now piqued. What I want to know is what exactly is it. Anything you can tell me would be great. Also and most importantly is it free. I have AOL and I'm fed up so I'm looking for something else that won't slow down my computer forever. Let me hear you fans of Mozilla rap about the product. Thanks in advance from a computer moron.

Mozilla is a web browser (like IE and Netscape). It's basically for people who don't want to be suckered into the Microsoft world of everything integrated into Windows. It has a pop-up blocker built in, it has a Google search bar, and it has pretty much all the same functionality as IE or Netscape does. I started using it about two weeks ago and have had little to no problems with it! ;-D

Yep ;-D I've had it for two months now and it's much better than Internet Explorer IMO.

This is the Light Side, if those Baseball punks have been calling us the Dark Side, they jacked our nickname for them.

If you are just looking for a browser, then use Firefox. It uses a large chunk of the Mozilla code, and puts a better user interface wrapper around the browser. Also, Mozilla typically includes a mail program, address book, etc., and it sounds like you wouldn't need that. I've used Mozilla/Firefox for >2 years with very few complaints. Oh yeah, Firefox is only a 4.5 MB download while Mozilla is about twice the size (in case you're on a dial-up connection.

Yes, this is what I am using. I thought it was all the same...but yeah, Firefox is the way to go. :-)

Be warned, I think you have to download an additional application if you want to do live yahoo fantasy drafts and such, as it uses Java.

Microsoft I believe no longer installs java anyway (somebody correct me if Im wrong) or at least the virtual machine thats needed for a lot of apps. So you would have to DL it anyway (at least I had to on my girlfriends computer)
