If you are one of the many who sometimes resent the hold that large, monopolous companies hold over us then you should be a Firefox user. Firefox is a web browser that is open source, meaning that anyone and everyone can see how it is made and take part in the creation of upgrades and improvements. Though there is a company (Mozilla), it is a non-profit. No big brother influence here. Thousands of computer programmers from around the globe work together to bring us this type of open source software, and it helps to keep prices down, quality up, and the wheels of technological progress moving. Young computer programmers often get off to a good start by taking part in projects like this, it gives them experience, contacts in the field, and it looks good on a resume. So help a kid out and try Firefox, here’s a link.
