The Browser, Unofficially

We at NitroWare offer our own build of Firefox , known as Firefox Community Edition which contains additional features and fixes for FREE download.

Firefox(TM) is a popular third party open source web browser in use around the world. Due to its open source nature many users choose to create their own third party builds of this browser, some add features, some fix bugs, some include modern emerging technologies and some simply wish to have a working version built using the most recent source code.

As the brand Firefox and the Firefox artwork and logos are trademarks of Mozilla Corporation, third parties may not use the artwork including in official Firefox releases or call their builds Firefox. Instead they may call their builds and releases 'Firefox Community Edition'

We at NitroWare offer our own build of Firefox which contains additional features and fixes for FREE download.

Note that the places icon indicates by its cross (X) that places is NOT enabled on a particular build.

In addition to icons, each filename includes a unique description
