Firefox is a navigator of Internet that was sent year 2002 by its creators of the Mozilla Corporation. It appears like an alternative of Internet Explorer navigator, who forms itself like the most well-known and used navigator, and that nevertheless, in the opinion of many users does not turn out to be the best one.
This navigator of Internet corresponds to the project, with graphical interface, developed by the Mozilla corporation. In his beginnings, which today we know by Mozilla Firefox, he had several names, such as Phoenix and Firebird. Or with its present name, Firefox is brief in official form like FF, as well as, like Fx or fx2. He is recognizable by his logo with a fox (Fox means fox in Spanish).
Firefox counts on several characteristics have transformed that it into a navigator who has been taking more and more force, although not yet he approaches the power of Internet Explorer in the market. Between the characteristics that more attractive are for their users it is that Firefox is a gratuitous application with whom can be sailed by the network, with unballastable additional modular functions. On the other hand, this novel navigator corresponds to a project “Open Source”, or in Spanish, “Abierto Code”, which means that all developer can modify the code and thus to be able to improve it. One is a navigating multiplatform, that is to say, that is available in different versions and thus it is possible to use it with Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and also with GNU/Linux.
Firefox already counts with more than 200 million users all over whom they say to be quite in agreement with his performance, since, apparently he would be a quite quick navigator, with great capacity of unloading and more surely, since it among others tells to things with protections integrated against some virus and the appearance of windows MGP-up.
According to the experts, the projects open source like the Firefox and others of similar nature, are the future, given their open and modular nature for the improvement on the part of the experts around the world, all working in voluntary collaboration. A true symbol of the Internet.
