What is up with firefox?

What is the difference between
Firefox beta 6
Aurora 7
and nightly 8
im very confused

Tom Trindell answers:

Release Candidate (RC), Beta, Aurora, and Nightly are Firefox’s different stages of development.
Nightly –> Aurora –> Beta –> Release Candidate (RC) –> Firefox

Firefox 6 beta will develop into Firefox 6 Release Candidate, and then into Firefox 6

Firefox Aurora 7 will develop into Firefox 7 beta, then it will develop into Firefox 7 Release Candidate, and then into Firefox 7

Firefox Nightly 8 will develop into Firefox Aurora 8, and then it will develop into Firefox 8 beta, then it will develop into Firefox 8 Release Candidate, and then into Firefox 8

Sharon asks…

what is so good about firefox?

what is different about firefox then internet explorer?

Tom Trindell answers:

Up until Internet Explorer 7, Firefox was tabbed while IE was not. They are both tabbed now.

The most important difference is security, as Internet Explorer is in my estimation the root of the vast majority of malware issues.

There is also more customizability for Firefox, with tons of user-created extensions. Internet Explorer is also a bit slow in drawing pages, although I wouldn’t exactly call Firefox lightning fast either.

However, I recommend other browsers about Firefox, such as K-Meleon (my top choice), Opera, or Orca. K-Meleon and Orca both run on the Gecko (Firefox) engine, but have a different layout and options, which as a result have them running more quickly than Firefox.
