Firefox with credibility?

Yahoo toolbar for Firefox
With its release of a search toolbar specifically designed for Firefox, Yahoo about Yahoo seems to have conferred a stamp of credibility on the upstart Web browser.

Certainly, Firefox proponents are interpreting it that way. And it is impossible to refute the fact that the browser is the first to loosen the iron clutch that Microsoft Internet Explorer has had on the browser market.

They don't really delve too deeply into the story, but Firefox was based off of Mozilla's Netscape browser. This is going to be interesting, this isn't the first 3rd party plugin for Firefox by any means, but this is definitely one of the first major inroads to obtaining any sort of standing as the alternative browser to IE. What I don't understand is why more people don't use it. I find it to be a very powerful browser. It has some better features than Internet Explorer (and Internet Explorer has some better features), but I think I've covered this topic plenty.
