When users visit a website (via a user agent such as a web browser), a text string is generally sent to identify the user agent to the web server. It is known as the "user agent string". The Netscape web browser identified itself as "Mozila" followed by some information about the operating system it was running on.
Dave Hyatt and Blake Ross began working on the Firefox project as an experimental branch of the Mozilla project. They believed the commercial requirements of Netscape's sponsorship and developer-driven feature creep compromised the utility of the Mozilla browser. To combat what they saw as the Mozilla Suite's software bloat, they created a stand-alone browser, with which they intended to replace the Mozilla Suite. On April 3, 2003, the Mozilla Organization announced that they planned to change their focus from the Mozilla Suite to Firefox and Thunderbird.
Mozilla Firefox (abbreviated officially as Fx, but also commonly as FF), is a web browser descended from the Mozilla Application Suite, managed by the Mozilla Corporation. Firefox had 17.76% of the recorded usage share of web browsers as of April 2008, making it the second-most popular browser in current use worldwide, after Internet Explorer.
