Firefox lights five birthday candles

Following hot on the heels of the 40th anniversary of the Internet, it’s now Firefox’s turn to celebrate its fifth birthday.

The first ever incarnation of Firefox opened its doors to the great surfing public back on November 9th 2004.

At the time, Internet Explorer almost completely dominated the market, although the web-scape has certainly changed since then. It’s thought that Firefox is now used by a quarter of the online population.

The next version of Firefox, 3.6, should be released before the end of the year. Mozilla’s road map puts Firefox 4 – complete with a new interface and multi-touch gesture support – down for an airing in autumn 2010.
