Default First version of firefox you ever used?

With all the talk of Firefox at these forums i just thought it would be interesting to see what version of Firefox/Firebird/Phonix(!) people here first started using.

For me it was Firebird 0.6 (Linux)

I checked out Phoenix 0.1 as soon as I read about it (I'm a pretty staunch mozilla supporter, been using it since roughly between M10 and M14), and had a pretty good review of it. IIRC, I started using it full time at 0.2 or 0.3, although I kind of flip-flopped between Moz and 0.1 for quite a while.

I think it was v0.6 on both Linux and Windows. It was originally just for the popup blocking (omg ZD), but I grew to love the tabbed browsing as well.

I believe it was Phoenix (or Firebird?) 0.6 for me. I'd been using Mozilla for a while, and heard it was good. I'm now on 1.0 final.

Frankly, I don't remember well. There were no fancy extensions or anything. It was just a browser. And it worked well. It was a lot better than struggling with the monolithic moz. suite.

Really, there's not a lot of new functionality in ffx1.0 when you get right down to it. 1.0's just loads more refined, bugfixed, with a few neat additions like skins and extensions

Phoenix 0.1 when it got posted on Slashdot.
Didn't make the switch as I was already an Opera fan.
