A few years ago, I switched from Netscape to Internet Explorer. I wasn't thrilled about doing it, because I disliked a lot of things about IE, and knew that a single browser world will not lead to better browsing. But Netscape's browser had become a bloated piece of software, and IE boasted much better support for Hebrew.
A few months back, when IE was giving me some trouble, I tried Mozilla Firefox, which was in beta at the time. And it was a whole new world. Hebrew support was fine, it was a much lighter software, and I completely fell in love with tabbed browsing. Some Israeli sites don't support it well at all, so I still have Explorer for those. But overall, it's been a major improvement in my browsing experience. Some of the third party extensions for Firefox are absolutely brilliant as well.
And today, Firefox officially grows up. It's out of beta and in official release. If you like surfing the web, you should try it. It's a safer browser, a lighter browser, and a better browser.
