By day, Alexander Vincent is a mild-mannered secretary for a Vallejo real estate broker. By night, he's an online crusader protecting users of a new Internet browser from glitches and security bugs. If he were a superhero, you might call him Mozilla Man. In fact, Vincent is part of a worldwide army of Mozilla men and women who believe in freedom, progress and the inalienable right to an open-source browser. Their weapon of faith is Firefox, a free browser created by the non-profit Mozilla Foundation.

Wooo Hoooo! I do so wish I could code as well - anything to kick some IE butt! I feel so strongly for Mozilla that I desperately try to get all my friends, customers and relatives to switch over - the benefits are unreal!
I personally like the tabbed browsing and the FREE extensions like "Mouse Gestures" and "Agent Switcher". Between these, I can now do my online banking and online research with merely a flick of my mouse!
No more memory problems, no "12 open windows" anymore, and speed! What more can I say! The online support is outstanding - any little problems I have had are easily rectified, and if not, I get personal assurances that the problems are being looked at. You just cannot PAY Microsoft for that kind of support!
