Mozilla Firefox stands out among all its competitors since the beginning of its journey. Firefox is an open-source free web browser available for everyone to use. FireFox was built with the aim of doing better than the other web browsers that dominated the market before such as Microsoft and Google. Firefox is maintaining its performance through an active community who make serious contributions in the improvement of FireFox by building extensions to improve users’ experience. These volunteers work for the product without expecting any remuneration and that’s why this community is considered as the greatest asset to Firefox. By introducing the add-ons and extensions before the competitors, FireFox leaves the users with a highly adaptable web browser that has huge potential and that always remains updated on an entirely open platform.
