    Tabbe browsing + personalised keywords = win, not to mention all the extensions floating about out there.

    Advanced Google toolbar, Gmail Notifier, FTP client, WinAmp controls...

    Pop-up blocking is one of my favourite features. I know that IE have just caught up with pop-ups, but Mozilla has been doing it since I first started using it 2-and-a-half years ago.

    Another feature I use is the ability to search a page by merely typing the keyword. No CTRL-F box (although that isn't too much effort either).

    The only downside I've seen on Mozilla is the lack of ability to save WMV and RAR files normally. If you attempt it, you see a page of gobble-y-gook. What you have to do is right-click on your wanted link and do a "save target as". Then place it somewhere on your hard drive and view the file once downloaded.

    All the features you've described above are included in netscape too. So what makes mozilla better than it?
    (For the record, I'm using firefox).

    I can't live without the Super Drag and Go extension, just drag a link to open it in a tab in the background! So useful if you want to read a load of links off one page!

    well I find the web developer tool really useful at work, but don't know if the same is available on netscape

    Holding Ctrl while clicking a link does that as well :confused:

    Have to say I am VERY impressed with Firefox. Been using it for about a week now - and earlier today I checked my hotmail account on IE instead of FF (it automatically opened up in IE) and managed to develop a Trojan. :rolleyes:

    Just changed the theme too, great stuff! :cool:

    I'm not sure if it's the same thing (I didn't install that tool for firefox) but netscape has composer, to make web pages.

    Funny how everyone was saying that "netscape is shit" and no one said why...
