Fire With FireFox !


Everybody uses the Web differently, so why should your browser be exactly like the next person’s? Firefox has more than 6,000 add-ons to help you customize it to your exact needs, plus thousands of Personas to instantly change the way it looks.

Firefox “free, cross platform browser” has got it all. It’s user friendly, mainstream product usable by the average joe, which means serious web sites like banks will not ignore it and force that segment of users into switching to Microsoft Internet Explorer for their operations, it is lightweight, fast, secure, and it contains advanced features and personal customizations for the power users out there.

Firefox is very focused toward a better user experience: it has tabbed browsing, making it easier to open many windows without cluttering your desktop, and pop-ups blockers against those annoying ads that open windows without the user’s consent, with a good chance of finally crashing the whole browser down. Its Find function with the “find as you go” behavior makes it a breeze to scan a page for specific keywords.

It is an open source project with a big community of enthusiasts throwing their talent and creativity into making original and practical extensions that could meet almost any exotic demands from any user. Many of those features would never be provided by other browser makers because they are not corporate friendly, such as ads blockers. Being open source is not the end of its qualities, Firefox also is very standard compliant, so developers can count on it for adhering to the latest W3C guidelines, which makes their work easier and insures future compatibility with the present web sites. Hopefully, one day, the laggard Microsoft browser will catch up to Fire fox (and Opera, and Safari…) and web site developers won’t have to program for different browsers anymore, just one industrial standard.

Firefox has also a great reputation for on-line security. Because that browser is not intrinsically tight up deep within the operating system, like Internet Explorer, it provides by default a certain layer of protection to your computer. At worse, only that particular application can become problematic, which hasn’t happened yet. Their lower market share also makes it a less interesting target for virus creators and other hackers. The auto update feature will make sure you are always up to date with the latest patch at the click of a button. Regarding your privacy, Fire fox makes it very easy to erase all traces of your browsing activities with a simple click, if you so desired, such as cookies, internet cache files, browsing history, download history, and more.

Firefox was such a success that the initial side project became the main flagship product for the Mozilla organization.

Hey now I am the Mozilla Campus Representative..!! 🙂

So use Firefox and Enjoy !
