For those of you living under a rock lately, Firefox is becoming one sexy little browser. Even Forbes has mentioned it saying "Microsoft should be worried." I've been through most of the Mac flavored web browsers -- beginning with Internet Explorer, then to Safari, to Opera, to Camino, to Firebird and finally I've settled on Firefox. I love it. It's quick, blocks pop ups, gives me tabbed browsing, and best of all, the extensions rock!
But now, enter the Preview Release of Firefox. It appears from their site that perhaps they've married the Sage functionality into the browser itself. I'm downloading now, so I'll soon know. But the site says, "Live Bookmarks is a new technology in Firefox that lets you view RSS news and blog headlines in the bookmarks toolbar or bookmarks menu. With one glance, quickly see the latest headlines from your favorite sites. Go directly to the articles that interest you -- saving you time." Sounds pretty close to Sage functionality to me.
Click that cute icon if you'd like to download the Preview Release. If you're already a Firefox convert, or you become one on this round, help spread the news. Maybe we can even slow down calls from clients about their computer problems if we can get them all hooked on a more secure browser. And check out their new site Spread Firefox where you can get your own cute little icons!
