Firefox 1.0 empowers you to browse faster, more safely and more efficiently than with any other browser. Three reasons given for the current interest in this browser are: security, the ability to create tabs, and the similarity of Mac and Windows versions. Firefox 1.0 enables the user to:
- Place several bookmarks in a folder in the toolbar and open them all up into separate tabs at one time.
- Monitor blogs and news sources through â€œfavoritesâ€ or bookmarks.
- Keep the computer safe from spyware.
- Import favorites and live bookmarks.
- Use the faster search with Smart Keywords with a Google toolbar.
- Customize toolbars by dragging icons.
Firefox is a watered down version of the Mozilla Suite and does not contain Email, chat, or Web design features. Check out Thunderbird for Email for speed, ease of blocking pop-ups site by site, and security (mainly from viruses). Read Craigâ€™s full article, â€œMy Browser of Choice — Firefoxâ€
Barbara added: You can even download themes for Firefox and Thunderbird to create a different look. I downloaded Walnut for Firefox to add a homey look to my browser.
