Firefox celebrates 5th birthday

I remember a day in 2003 when I first tried Phoenix, a daring offspring of the bloated Mozilla suite. It was a breath of fresh air compared to the horrible IE6. It was later renamed Firebird, then Firefox, and finally version 1.0 was released on November 9 2004.

It felt faster than any browser I had previously used and I instantly found myself addicted to using tabs instead of opening new IE windows all the time.

Suddenly it’s 2009 and I realize that I’ve been using Firefox almost every day that has passed. Not bad for a piece of software. Join the celebrations at Five years of Firefox!
