Comments from those who selected Firefox as one of their Top 10 Tools 

  • “first choice for browser for past 17 years. Use it at work, school and play.” Anon, Canada
  • “as the entry point to other tools remains essential. Used over other tools for speed, plugins, etc.” Ian Gardner, L&D Manager, UK, 2016
  • “My default browser for 16 years. Easy to use; frequent and relevant updates. Useful add ins.” John Thompson, University/College teacher, USA, 2016
  • “This is still my preferred browser. I’ve dabbled with others but keep coming back to Firefox.” 2015
  • “most efficient browser: Washington Braga, 2015
  • “Still my browser of choice, used every day, have used other browsers but still prefer this one.” Carol Cooper Taylor
  • “I use Firefox almost constantly, because its many plug-in possibilities allow me to maneuver quickly and easily for my work and my personal playing.”  Joan Vinall-Cox
  • “I have finally converted to Firefox from Internet Explorer (IE). After getting used to it, I have come to realize how disastrous IE really is. But then again, I have been experimenting with Google Chrome this week, and I might convert to Chrome in the coming weeks, if it is as good as it feels right now (simple, fast, sufficient and efficient). Anyway, I have all three running, so if one does not work for something, I have two other options to explore.” Zaid Alsagof
  • “Fast and stable browser with all the add-ons to create a powerful learning environment and to experience the web to it’s full extend.” Marcel de Leeuwe
  • “it’s my window on the world”  Jay Cross
  • “my browser of choice. With an apparently infinite source of extensions, plug-ins and add-ons, Firefox is quick, customizable and clever.”  Kate Foy
