Bloglines recommends Firefox

With the release of Firefox 1.0, Bloglines launches the Bloglines Firefox Center to help its users in switching to this better browser. As annoucned in its news section:

It's no surprise that Firefox has been a big hit among bloggers: the browser is free, small, fast, open-source, standards-compliant, supported by a large community, and nicely optimized for RSS discovery.

With the 1.0 release today, we think it is really going to take off, and that's why we're announcing the Bloglines Firefox Center today.

Over the past few months, we've watched users steadily switch away from Netscape and Internet Explorer to Firefox. Back in July, while Firefox was still in beta, it had grown to over 5% of our traffic. Today, Firefox represents 20% of requests to Bloglines.

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of Firefox is its ease of extensibility. We regularly hear from developers writing programs on top of the Bloglines Web Services and Notifier APIs, but the Firefox extensions are some of the best and should really help regular consumers use RSS. To learn more, visit our Firefox Center and grab a copy of the browser and all the latest extensions.

Text emphasized by me. ;-)
