## Introduction

Firefox
Description: Firefox is a free, open source Web browser for a number of operating systems including Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. It is based on the Mozilla code base and offers customization options and features such as its capability to block pop-up windows, tabbed browsing, privacy and security measures, smart searching, and RSS live bookmarks. In addition, due to its design, a number of plugins (add-ons and extensions) can be added to an installation to enhance on a users browsing experience.

If a question was asked, what would be the educational landscape without technology? If the same question was asked differently, what would be the educational landscape without the contribution of the free and open source movement? Coming to think of it, would it mean that I would not be writing this course material - because it is running on MediaWiki, and am using Firefox to write it? Would it mean that I would not have gotten the access MIT's open courseware on Computer Science when I was studying? Maybe what it would have meant is that I would not have searched information on Wikipedia.
