Mozilla Firefox
Web browser | Posted by jonchappell on Aug 06th 05 07:18 AM
Mozilla Firefox (Firefox for short) is a web browser that is gaining popularity as an alternative to Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser that ships with Windows.

Here are some of the features that separate it from Internet Explorer:
  • Tabbed browsing - You can open new web pages in "tabs" so that you don't need to open extra Firefox windows. This saves memory and does not clutter up your taskbar.
  • Pop-up blocker - Blocks advertising popup windows. IE has this feature if you install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
  • Extension support - Users can install third-party browser extensions for extra functionality.
  • Live bookmarks - Support for RSS feeds.
  • Security - Firefox has many security features. The most significant feature in my opinion is the fact that it does not support ActiveX. This enables people to create add-ins that can interface with the operating system. Many unscrupulous add-ins trick the user into installing them.
  • Speed - Firefox is generally faster and more responsive than Internet Explorer. It can be made even faster by tweaking it (see the tweak guide below).
