History Of Firefox
So we all are well acquainted with the Mozilla Firefox web browser. That pictogram of the globe of the world being snugly hugged by a fiery fast orange fox is all too familiar. And why do we love firefox? Because it gets the job done. It makes using the internet simple and effortless. No long waiting and no hassles. But where did it all begin? Every great project usually started with nothing more complicated than a good idea matched with dedication and effort. Mozilla firefox is hailed as being the brainchild of two persons by the name of Dave Hyatt and Blake Ross, and was borne as nothing more than an offshoot of the Mozilla browser. The product was released to the world in the year of 2004, so that was quite a few years ago now. And of course, as we all know, prior to that it was the internet explorer that was more widely used. Firefox however, came into the picture and changed the internet stakes forever. New and improved versions of the product were then constantly being released. The 2004 release was followed up with releases in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. The last version released came with a rapid release cycle. This envisions a major release every six weeks! The last version was released in 2014. The initial name used before release was Phoenix. This name was eventually changed because of a trademark dispute. The next name they picked was Firebird. This though, also was already borne by another software product. Pressure because of the name similarity caused them to change the name again. And what a lucky thing as well, I can’t imaging “Phoenix” or “Firebird” being as popular as “Firefox”. The latter name is just perfect. The name firefox was then registered with the United States patent office, to prevent the need for any further name changes.
What kind of features does firefox have that makes it unique from other web browsers? Firefox is said to rely on what is called a robust extension system. This means that users of firefox can modify the browser. They will do this according to their particular individual requirements. This then means that all the features of the browser do not have to be supplied in the standard distribution of the product. Pretty clever right? While it is true that Opera and Google Chrome can boast a similar feature, the truth is that since 2013, their extensions that they offer are less in number than firefox’s.
