Mozilla Firefox is the most famous web browser. It's considered the best web browser because of the many features it provides. In addition, Mozilla Firefox is absolutely free, unlike its competitor Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Mozilla Firefox is considered the fastest and most stable web browser and it has a very low memory and CPU usage if you compare it to any other web browser. You can expand the functionality of Mozilla Firefox by installing many of the free extensions and add-ons, which will help you add many advanced features such as weather forecasts, stock updates, latest news and many others. You can install these extensions and add-ons by going to "www.mozilla.org" website, where you will install them with just one click and after that, enable, disable or uninstall them from the add-on manager. The appearance of the browser can be customized by installing new themes that can be found on the developer's website. Moreover, Firefox allows storing your account passwords and it automatically inserts them into the login boxes the next time you return to the websites. Another useful feature is that you can search Yahoo, Google, MSN and many other directly from inside the browser. The browser has nice bookmarks and History managers that facilitate your browsing experience. Mozilla Firefox also has a built-in download manager with stop/resume capabilities.
