You may have seen the IE tips I posted earlier this year in my blog. One reader pointed out that they’re best IE improvement tip was to throw out IE and switch to Mozilla’s Firefox browser.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Well, I took this recommendation to heart and have been using Firefox ever since. As it turns out, I –really– like this product. I haven’t really dug very deep into the new and cool features of Firefox, but I’ve already found one feature that I can’t seem to live without – tabbed windows. With tabbed windows, you can open multiple web pages each on its own tab within a single browser session. Since I do a lot of research on the web, I often find links to links to links. The tabbed windows enables me to open all of them and not lose context.
A great on-line resource that I’ve enjoyed for a long time is Dave Taylor’s weblog at www.askDaveTaylor.com. Dave is a professional author who discusses everything under the sun according to the questions of his readers. He recently added a good article on Firefox that I think all my Firefox readers will enjoy – check out http://www.askdavetaylor.com/are_there_some_tricks_to_speed_up_firefox.html.
In addition, you should look up the Mozilla Firefox Tuning Discussion forum at http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=53650.
