Freeware Mission – Best Free Web Browser

by James 28 November 2008 9 Comments

If you read yesterday’s post you know that my system has crashed and I had to reinstall Windows XP. The “Freeware Mission” means that I’ll try to install only free software on my computer. First of all I need a web browser. Which one should I choose?


Well, the choice is quite simple. I’ve been using Firefox for years now, and it’s been a good reliable program for me. I won’t change it, so the free web browser for me is Firefox, no doubt about that! You can download the latest version from here, it’s free!

Win 2000, XP, Vista , Mac OSX 10.4 and later

Version Tested


Which reminds me, I reviewed a few weeks ago a nice piece of freeware called MozBackup, a free Firefox and Thunderbird backup tool. Fortunately I backed up my Firefox settings when I tested the program, so now I was able to restore all my bookmarks, passwords, settings, everything! That saved me a lot of time and energy! You can download it from here.

    The new Opera got a facelift and has won its speed title back. For those who don’t like the new facelift, there is the previous version, or skins. Opera has 150 Firefox-like plugins built-in, is fully customizable, plus has other little touches that are nowhere to be found when I use Firefox. If you haven’t tried Opera in awhile, give it a try for a week. You might be pleasantly surprised.

    Hey Wes, thanks for stopping by. And thanks for the info, I’ll try to test Opera in a week or two.

    Hi, congratulation for your blog, it is great! I was thinking maybe you could also add a section for best freeware operating system. I’m quite happy with Ubuntu here.

    Thanks for your kind words. As for the operating system, I didn’t test any free OS so far, but I’m planning to do so. I heard a lot of good things about Ubuntu, so I think I’ll give it a go.

    Nice site, I’ve liked it very much.
    The blog “A Little Bit of Everything” isn’t working anymore.
