Firefox is a Web browser developed and maintained by the nonprofit group Mozilla and supports all modern Web standards.
Firefox is designed from the ground up to be fast and secure, while maintaining its open source roots. It is supported by thousands of volunteers, while hundreds improve on the browser in the form of add-ons and apps. Because of the open nature of Firefox development, anyone can contribute, meaning countless of add-ons are available that users can access easily.
Due of its vibrant developer culture, Firefox can be catered to suit anyone, whether you need it for basic web browsing, web development, to support particular goals or to make many aspects of a power user's life easier to manage.
Firefox's layout engine, Gecko, is designed in every facet to support all open Internet standards and is used in a variety of other programs. It loads Web pages quickly; however, the connection speed or the time users have to wait depends entirely on their Internet speed.
Firefox's interface has recently followed Google Chrome's lead, with a minimal approach that takes up little screen real estate while still allowing easy access to everything a user needs to obtain or access regularly. The default home page offers a convenient place to change various settings and the new tab page offers easy access to frequently visit websites.
The only issue Firefox has is that installing multiple add-ons can slow performance. While this drawback should not be an issue for most users, users will find it advantageous to choose and download add-ons wisely and with constraint to avoid overloading their systems.
