Firefox moves into 1.0

The popular alternative to Microsoft Explorer, Mozillla’s Firefox, released it’s 1.0 preview on Tuesday. There’s been a steady increase in the number of Firefox installs as folks start to move away from IE in the wake of all its security problems.

On my personal site, I’ve seen Mozilla and Safari traffic grow to where it now represents over 25% of all the hits coming to the site.

Upon initial use, I see no significant changes except a for finding text on a page now brings up a cool little finder bar at the bottom and the words are highlighted on screen. Also, when you are on a secure site, the address bar changes color which is visually more noticeable than the little padlock icon which is the common convention.
