What is Firefox? Firefox is a free open-source web browser developed by Mozilla. First developed in 2002 by a community of software designers that were unhappy with the Mozilla software suite at the time. Their mission was to design a light, standalone web browser. It didn’t take long for Firefox (known as Phoenix in the early days) to become incredibly popular with tech-savvy crowd.
Firefox was then released to the general public in 2004. The web browser proved to be so popular that it was downloaded over 60 million times in only the first 9 months of its release. For the first time, Microsoft could begin to see the end of Internet Explorer. Users quickly noticed the difference in speed and security on the Mozilla system as opposed to Microsoft’s web browser.
At the time of this writing, Firefox is the primary web browser for anywhere from 10% -15% of desktop users according to Mozilla. These numbers place Firefox in second place behind Google Chrome, the world’s most used web browser.
