A visit to the past : Firefox Developer Browser

Firefox was welcomed immensely by the web community 10 years ago because of its better build quality. It was faster, secure and featured amazing UI. Users started to shift from Internet Explorer and Firefox became the king of the web until Google released their own open-source web browsers Chrome.

Now, Chrome rules the web browser market. It has more users and is slightly better than firefox. Google Developer tools embedded into the Google Chrome browser gave it much better retention rate with developers.

Firefox followed the same path and released WebIDE, a programming environment for browsers and Firefox Tools Adapter.

And now, Firefox is completely rethinking their relationship with the developer community. The release can see changes in how Firefox is treated and celebrated in the developer community at least.

The Firefox Developer browser will include the two old Firefox projects, WebIDE and Firefox Tools Adapter.Firefox Tools Adapter lets the developer test their sites and apps on the different platforms like Chrome for PCs.

Firefox browser also rooted its presence in mobile but soon Safari took its place as the best browser for mobile.
