Why To Use Firefox

Post by StevenF50 on 2010-10-18, 03:15

Hello,

I'll tell you why to use firefox:
Many of you have asked, “Why should I use the Mozilla Firefox web browser?” While I know many
of you are very used to Internet Explorer as your default browser (simply out of habit, by personal
preference, or maybe you didn't know you had a choice), I would strongly suggest that you start using
Mozilla's Firefox browser as your default web browser for any content on the web. Here's just a sample of
the reasons why:
Advanced Features:
• Pop-Up Blocking: Tired of pop-ups ruling your desktop? Wish your favorite site didn't always pop up
annoying ads offering you some free trinket? You answer is here. Firefox offers advanced pop-up
blocking so you won't have to see another pop-up again! It offers a customizable interface that
allows pop-ups to launch just in case some sites require their usage, or on the odd chance you enjoy
the pop-up windows from certain sites.
• Tabbed Browsing: Browsing multiple websites is part of using the Internet. But why use a new
window for each site you visit? Every new window opened clutters your taskbar, and drains your
computer of the resources it needs to function at optimum speed. The solution to this problem is
simple: Tabbed Browsing! Tabbed browsing not only uses a fraction of the resources a new window
uses, but it also organizes all of your websites in easy to use “file folder” styled tabs. Switching back
and forth between your sites is as simple as clicking on the Tab you want view. Best of all, you can
open as many Tabs as you like in a single window!
• Increased Security: Ever noticed weird programs or advertisements that pop-up on your computer?
Chances are, you were infested by a type of program commonly known as SpyWare. SpyWare uses
security flaws in web browsers such as Internet Explorer to easily invade your computer, track your
data, and deliver annoying advertisements. With Firefox, you don't have to put up with that kind of
intrusion! Its advanced security features help prevent Spyware from waltzing in and taking over
your computer. Firefox also provides full control over cookies, password storage, browser cache, and
other safety features. This means that your data and web browsing experience is the safest it can
be, so you can enjoy the Internet even more!
• Automatic Updates: Too busy to look for software updates? No problem! Starting with version 1.5,
Firefox checks for the latest security and feature updates quickly and quietly, every time you use the
browser! If any updates are found, it prompts you when they are ready for installation.
• Customizable: Want to change the layout of your browser? Go Ahead! Want to add an extra
feature to your browser, like checking your local weather? You can! New Features and customized
looks are available thanks to the use of extensions and themes.
Other Features Include
• FREE DOWNLOAD
• Compact Download size (5.0MB)
• Usable on most operating systems:
• Windows: XP, 2000, ME, 98, 95
• Apple/MAC: OS X
• OS 10.2x. or higher
• Linux: Most i686 Distribution
• Easily Imports your Favorites and Bookmarks from
other Web Browsers
• Find what you need quickly with Google Search
right on your Toolbar
• Compatible with the latest Plug-ins such as
Macromedia Flash and Shockwave, Java, Real
Player, and QuickTime.

Thanks.

Something i want to add.

SOme people say that internet stopped developing and upgrating in the last 2 years.Thats something that only Internet Explorer users say.

Last year,a new CSS Version came in,CSS3.
With amazing features,like text shadows,rounded corners,glows,creating icons only with CSS3 and without using PS of something like that,reflections etc.

Only Firefox,Safari,Opera & Chrome support CSS3(Only Safari & Chrome supports the reflection effect).As a result,an IE user cant get the most of a CSS3 powered website.

Regarding to my opinion,i think IE should stop beeing the default browser in computers unless it supports CSS3 in the future(Even the newest version of IE Doenst support it!)
