I've been playing with Mozilla Firebird and I'm finding that I like it quite a bit. Except for the lack of spellchecking, it is a really nice full-featured OS X browser.

The cool new feature I found that I haven't seen in any other browser yet is the option to have images size automatically to fit in the browser window. To see the image in full size, simple click on it (the cursor will change to a magnifying glass with a plus in it as you move over the image) and it will display in full size. Click again and it fits in the window again. It isn't something that I have to have, it won't sell me on a browser, but it is nice to see the Mozilla project continuing to be an innovator.

IE 6 does this. I find it generally annoying personally. It could be useful at times though.

Actually, I hear that's been in IE for Windows for a year or two now. Good idea, though -- at least when given a good UI for controlling it.

This is available in Camino nightlies and in mozilla.

Being forced to use Win2K at work, I find this feature useful about 75% of the time. The other times it really is quite annoying.

But yeah, it's been in IE for a while now.
