Productfirefox_2I’m a big fan of Open Source development, and so have closely followed the launch of Firefox 1.0. As a Mac user, I’ve already been saved from the security loopholes inherent in Internet Explorer, but the ability to add Extensions and new Themes to Firefox appeals. I particularly like FoxyTunes, bringing iTunes management to the browser window.

Since Safari already uses the Mozilla engine, I thought it would be easy to switch to Firefox. But there doesn’t seem to be a wizard to move Safari bookmarks to Firefox. And, Safari doesn’t allow you to export bookmarks either, so I’m caught in a limbo between browsers until one of the Open Source community smiles on a hapless Mac user. (Did I say how much of a fan I am of Open Source development?)
