User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
Since FC uses Evolution as the default mail client, and since Firefox
is smaller, faster, simpler and easier than Mozilla, shouldn't Firefox
be the default browser in Fedora?

Right now I use the fedora.us package of Firefox.  But shouldn't you
choose the best possible browser to be the default?  A lot of people
use the default, because it is the default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

FWIW, Firefox has made it into Fedora Core development recently, thus
should be part of Fedora Core 3. Should this bug be closed RAWHIDE?
Comment 2 Christopher Blizzard 2004-09-27 12:27:42 EDT
Closing WONTFIX right now.  Mozilla is still in the distro.  Firefox
is in there, too, but won't replace it yet.
