    Is Firefox a bad web browser? No. Is it the next coming of the Almighty? According to some it would seem that way. It is one thing recommending a program, it is entirely another to preach about something as if you were part of a religious cult. Seriously how sad is it that a program needs a web page like this:
    www.spreadfirefox.com
    "Welcome to Spread Firefox. You are our marketing department, a diverse community of people tired of swatting popups, chasing spyware, combating identity theft and installing security updates you could set your watch to. You have a vision of the 21st century web and are ready to push it to the world, wresting control from a monopoly that has let it stagnate. We'll provide the tools, but you will drive campaigns that will be rolled out here over the coming months."

    No offense but - how sad it is that people care so much. I could'nt care less about the "religion". Perhaps it does irritate me somewhat when people notice and complain about it - just use the damn browser if you want - forget the ads and hype - find your own reasons - customize it your way.

    I use it for my own reasons.

    BTW, I don't think Firefox "needs" it. Recommend: read the comments: http://poptech.blogspot.com/2005/01/firefox-new-religion.html#comments
