Speaking of Clint Eastwood, if I may sidetrack for a moment; I read recently in a Forbes article titled "How Clint Eastwood Rouses Guys' Love Hormone" that watching a Clint Eastwood movie can actually raise your testosterone levels. (Bridges of Madison County excluded) Don't believe me? Check out the news link.
The Firefox I am referring to is the Firefox browser. It seems hotter than Britney Spears, Paris Hilton or whoever the hottest pop idol is these days. I bet it's currently returning as many Google hits as either of these two popular people. I haven't tried Firefox myself yet, but i did check out it's features. It supports tabbed browsing, a built-in pop-up blocker, and more. Personally, I don't see the big deal. I use the free Avant Browser which uses the Internet Explorer engine but adds tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking, Flash blocking, ad blocking, and more.
I guess any browser that is fast and not Microsoft (the anti-MS to be cool craze) and works on multiple operating systems causes lots of hype. Maybe someone can comment on why Firefox has received so much hype. For now I'm sticking with Avant Browser. Check out one of the developer's blogs here:
