Revision Content

Firefox is Mozilla's popular Web browser application, available for many platforms including GNU/Linux, Mac OS X and Windows on the desktop, as well as Android on mobile devices. With broad compatibility with the latest in Web technologies and powerful developer tools, Firefox is the greatest browser both for end users and Web developers.

Firefox is an open source project; much of the code is contributed by our enormous volunteer community. Here you'll learn both about contributing to the Firefox project, but you'll also find links to documentation about building Firefox add-ons, using the Firefox developer tools, and so forth.
