Firefox Accessibility

I love Firefox. I only converted to using it about a year ago and am kicking myself for taking so long to make the switch from Internet Explorer. I have Firefox loaded with excellent extensions and have written a bunch of Greasemonkey scripts to make my web experience more enjoyable. While the ‘official’ browser share for Firefox is a little more than 10%, 26% of WebAIM site visitors are using that browser, with another 2% using other Mozilla-based browsers.

As an open source project, Firefox development is very responsive to the needs and desires of the community and web standards are a top priority. This includes accessibility. I’ve written an article that provides an overview of the accessibility features and options that Firefox provides. This article was originally written for Accessible Content magazine, an excellent resource which will unfortunately no longer be published.
