Mozilla Firebird

Anyone use this browser.

I've just started using it today, it's pretty quick & lean. Doesn't actually need installing, just unzip the download & run the exe file to run the browser.

The only problem I've found so far (version 0.6.1) is that response to the scrollwheel on my Logitec Cordless MouseMan Optical is a bit flacky.

I think it's better than Opera, and it's completely free with no ads.

i've got it but never use it.prefer opera.don't remember wot i did but i altered summat ( think maybe i was sent a file) that allowed me to get rid of the banner completely in opera.used to have problems with the mouse in there but since upgrading i've been ok.

I've just downloaded 2 extensions for Firebird, one to make it a Tabbed interface, for quick access to several pages, and another to enable "mouse gestures" so it's just like Opera now. I'm really getting to like it now.

I'll give it a couple more days & then maybe it will become my default browser.
