If you’re still using the Internet Explorer or Safari that came with your computer, it’s just about time to upgrade. Mozilla's Firefox, the leading free, open-source, nonprofit Web browser, has a shiny new 3.0 version in beta testing, and it’s “the best Web browser out there,” Walter Mossberg writes in the Wall Street Journal.
With this new edition, Firefox reclaims the mantle of speediest browser, while simultaneously improving security. It also has a host of nifty new features, like one-click bookmarking. And since it’s open source, any features it’s missing can probably be found as free, fan-scripted add-ons. "Even though you already have a built-in browser," Mossberg concludes, "Firefox 3.0 can improve your Web experience."
