Firefox Turns 10!

10 years ago today Mozilla released the very first version of the Firefox browser – and as such may very well have started the open source browser revolution. While Google Chrome does hold the top spot in the browser popularity wars; Firefox is is on the forefront of fighting for an open web and user security. In-fact even on their birthday they’ve decided to launch a new Firefox release with a slew of new privacy and control features.

For starters Mozilla has added DuckDuckGo as a pre-installed search option in Firefox for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. Next up they’ve added a new Forget feature to Firefox. Forget gives you an easy way to tell Firefox to clear out some of your recent activity by simply telling Firefox how much data (time-wise) you wish to delete. The last 5 minutes, 30 minutes, 4 hours, etc.

So happy birthday Firefox! Thank you for everything you’ve done over the last 10 years; and here’s to the next 10! Gift-icon

10 years in, you know where we stand. Mozilla is a non-profit, global community, and our values are clear: choice and control for our users, openness and innovation for the Web that has become so central to our lives. On values, all browsers are not created equal, and your choices make a big difference. On our 10th birthday, we want to thank you for your support and your trust. When you use Firefox, you make our voice louder; you become part of a community of millions building our shared values into the fabric of the Web. We couldn’t do it without you, and we hope you enjoy the new release.
