Firefox 1.0


There has been a lot of talk about the recently released final version of the web browser Firefox 1.0.

Much of the talk has been about how it compares to Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE), how it’s safer, how it’s faster, blah, blah, blah. Here at the Impulsive Buy, we decided to review Firefox in a way that’s really helpful for some of you. We decided to review Firefox in relation to viewing corn.

That’s right, you heard us and we’re not ashamed to admit it. We like to view corn on our computers.

Whether it’s white corn, or black corn, or any other kind of corn, we really like corn. Because there is so much corn out there to view, we needed a browser that makes it easier to look at corn. We think we’ve found it in Firefox 1.0.

The biggest thing that really helped with our excessive corn viewing was tabbed browsing, which allows us to open many corn sites with one window. There’s also a feature that allows us to open a group of bookmarks at the same time in separate tabs, which is great when we want to open all of our asian corn sites at the same time.

IE doesn’t have tabs and because it doesn’t have tabs we were getting caught viewing corn. With IE, we had to open each corn site in a separate window and when we heard someone coming we had to scramble to hide all the windows, which is a very time consuming process. Now with tabs, all we have to hide is one window.


We think the developers of Firefox had corn viewers in mind when they came up with tabbed browsing.

Another important feature is the pop-up blocker. When viewing the many corn sites there are tons of pop-up windows, which mostly ask us if we want more hot corn. These pop-ups drive us insane, but with Firefox we can stop pop-ups with a click of a button.

The last feature we will talk about are the extensions you can install for Firefox. Our favorite is a music controller, because we can listen to 70’s corn music while viewing corn. Bow chica. Bow chica.

There’s also an extension that allows web surfers to easily control Firefox using only mouse gestures, which is very useful for corn viewers, who always surf with only one hand.

If you haven’t downloaded Firefox, we highly recommend you do. The tabs alone make it worthwhile, whether you like corn or not.

  1. I tried Firefox and it was a disaster for me. I found that it would not display DHTML and any website with DHTML got scrambled hopelessly. So, I uninstalled it and went back to my trusty I.E. … I do agree the tab feature is very nice, but I wouldn’t recommend it until the DHTML bug is worked out.

  2. Bravo! Loved your review!!! I have made the change to Firefox and have been quite happy with it- have only run into one site that didn’t like it. 🙂

    Missed your entries while you were in Las Vegas, glad to see that you are back!

  3. I’ve been using Firefox a couple of months now, and it’s so much better than ie…. For the pop-up blocking feature alone!!!

  4. A Brilliant Review.

    And to the guy who posted about not likeing firefox: we know you work for Microsoft so you can stop pushing IE.

  5. I use Firefox. Its soooo much nicer than IE. Although, Firefox doesnt display some features on websites. But, at any rate, Firefox is a hellava better brower…. especially for corn surfing. 🙂

  6. I use it because IE does not remember Typepad information!! I just recently downloaded it to be rid of the problem that IE was having. I like it a whole lot better!!

  7. I was really liking my regular Mozilla and was reluctant to try Firefox…and even after I d/l it and installed it I told myself that I was still going to use regular Mozilla because I liked the skin better…(takes all kinds doesn’t it?) but still gave Firefox a chance or two and now I have not stopped using it.

    I’m not seeing a lot of difference between my regular Mozilla and Firefox but I’m seeing enough to keep me using Firefox.

  8. I use MyIE2 which also has tabbed browsing for corn – also makes it very easy to deal with the 30 second requirement of bad blogs – like mine. May switch to Firefox though, if only because the pop-up blocker on MyIE2 isn’t as good. Does firefox have a google toolbar app? I really like that….

  9. Lol … I actually thought you were talking about corn for a minute. Doh! Mind you, I’ve just been out clubbing and am a _litttle_ tipsy still. Hee hee. 🙂

    Oh, I’ve been using Firefox exclusively for 2 years now and I’m never going back to IE. I only us IE if I absolutely have to or I’m testing something. I LOVE Firefox. Um…at this point I love anything, but I really really mean it with Firefox. 😉

  10. I’m not that fond of firefox, although I do use it at times..
    And I also didn’t understand the corn thing until about halfway through, when you said hot corn. 😉 lol
    I guess thats a blonde for ya.

  11. I use a corporate site for much of my work and Firefox hates it or it hates Firefox. I don’t know which it is, but these two definitely don’t get along.

  12. I knew I wasn’t utilizing Firefox to its full potential. Thank you so much for pointing out just why it’s the greatest browser around. By the way, is it hot in here??

  13. Ho, ho, ho. I’ve been using Firefox (even though I’m not a big fan of corn). I think the best feature is the multiple search engines – I can run Amazon, eBay, A9, Google, IMDB, and other searches all from the one search bar. And the ability to control my music from the browser means I don’t have to click away from my non-corn browsing to change tunes.
