1.7 (Jun 19, 2004)
Mozilla is my preferred browser because
1) it is free, opensource and runs on all OS I use;
2) tabbed browsing (actually this is why I first switched from IE);
3) I can configure it to be as safe as I want (cookies, popup);
4) the mail & newsgroup clients are excelent and the visual HTML editor is more than capable for the casual job;
5) for web development the liveHTTPheaders addon (www.mozdev.org) and the browser debug mode are invaluable tools;
1.7 is faster than previous versions.
it is the good work of the mozilla contributors (with apache, samba and many others) that made microsoft change from its "out there in the real world" de facto standards (NTLM) to real RFC standards (SPNEGO). For this example it means that regardless of the OS, browser and web server you can interoperate when using authenticated web apps in the intranet. Not a bad thing surelly.
