Time Magazine on Firefox 2

This is awesome.

By now you may have heard that the makers of the two leading web browsers launched their latest totally free editions, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7 and Mozilla’s Firefox 2, within a week of each other. Feature-wise, most news reports have already declared a winner: the long-awaited IE7 may be a vast improvement over its predecessors, but the new Firefox leaves it in the dust.

Of course Mozilla needs more than just better reviews than IE over the long haul, but it is quite a testament to the fact that a small team backed by a global volunteer open-source community can build a better product than Redmond.

    “Session Restore” is amazing. The first time I was prompted to use it, I was all like, “Whoa!”, Keanu Reeves-style. Well done.

    I do love the session restore. The only thing I’ve heard is that IE7 has anti-aliasing on all text, like Safari. This is going to make a difference for some people. I wonder if FFX will be rolling this out soon or if it could be done with a plugin?
