Happy Birthday little fox!
 
It was TrekBBS who first introduced me to The Fox. And now he's five years old today. Wow! Doesn't seem so long!

Now I'm even getting just a little familiar with the fox's friend, the penguin.

How many users here switched to the fox?

I'm with the fox. I think I picked it up because of the bbs, too. Happy birthday!

It's only been 5 years? I would've thought it had been around longer.

I believe I was introduced to the fox via its cousin, the now-defunct lizard. I very rarely use anything else.

Here's to many more years. :beer:

I thought it was longer than that until PyschoPere said something on facebook a few or two about it.

I forget how I came to be a friend of the fox...I've been using it since it's early days, so it was probably recommended to me. Or I read about it. Or something.

Damn my useless memory!

:D

I forget where I first heard about it, but it was probably here. And I've been using it at least three years, I think, so I guess I adopted it early on.

Happy Birthday, Firefox. http://home.comcast.net/%7ERJDiogenes/BirthdayCake.gif

Hurray for the fox!

It took me a couple of months to warm up to the idea of it after my brother in law first started talking about it, but I never looked back.

I wonder what browser I used the first couple of months I was on-line :confused:

(Oh btw: Firefox is one of the few browsers that support animated PNGs, hence the bouncy logo ;) )

I can't remember where I heard about it. The version number was 0.8 I think, something like that, so it was way early. An Aussie computer mag I'm pretty sure.

I started using the fox around .80 (still my favorite version).
Hard to believe it's been 5 years!

Happy birthday, Fox!

It was all in Mozilla first before they decided to separate just the browser from the rest of the stuff.

I'm trying to remember, I think I started using Mozilla in '02

Same here, it was largely the BBS that got me into Firefox.

Okay, that makes more sense.

I too was eventually lured towards the Fox having been a staunch fan of operatic works, and as a feature-packed alternative to IE it saw a lot of action with me. However, recently that fox has become bloated, fat, greedy, and gluttonous, at least towards me, so I eventually threw the thing out and settled back in for several nights at the Opera. But I still occasionally revisit the Fox for the occasional evening of Loathing. :bolian:
