Joel Spolsky endorses Mozilla Firebird

In a recent entry at Joel on
, Joel says that we finally have a browser that will work

as a drop-in replacement for IE. There’s no reason to use IE for

day-to-day browsing any more.

“All the little problems are fixed. It loads fast. It’s not ugly and

clunky. My beloved Alt+D/Ctrl+Enter work perfectly. NT

challenge/response authentication is supported. And there are new

features, too: tabbed browsing, which is better than it sounds.

Incremental search, which is brilliant and I already can’t live

without. Text size adjustments that always work. A download manager.

Excellent cookie management.”

Amen to that.
