Ode to Firefox

By SaraToday


O Jessie

A year has come and gone since you first switched to Firefox.

You mentioned it once but didn’t push,

Perhaps sensing my hesitancy.

I declined; didn’t even look into it.

Said, “Self, I’ve always used Internet Explorer.”

‘Twas the worst of human nature –

Fear of change,

Clinging to the old ways.

Squinty-eyed folded-armed suspicion.

Even with the neo-hippiness of my long-past college days

I didn’t believe something created by many people for free

could be as good as something made by a company for profit.

Shame, shame, for shame.


Then recently I was encouraged

And somewhat pressured

By a man in black aptly named Code.

I took the plunge.

I pressed Download.

Import Favorites.

Keep my previous homepage.


Wha… ?  It’s subtly faster –

Oh.  Oh look how quickly it opens images.


And, it … asks me questions.  So many options!

Do I want to save and reopen these tabs next time? YES YES YES!

Open Source I embrace thee!

Like Free Range and Co-Op and CommonWealth.

Like the wireless woven web itself

we are supported by

this quiet glue of many minds at work.


And I feel so hip with the pretty little world in my toolbar.

Cool beans.  Cool beans.
