I get Kim's computer related newsletters each week. There's a daily tip, daily cool site, daily news, and a weekend edition. You can get them too by signing up here. In the meantime, from her weekend edition here's tips on using Firefox as your web browser:
FREEBIES TO BETTER THE BROWSER
There’s more than one way to surf the Internet. There’s Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari and many more browsers. I use Firefox. Why? Firefox is not part of Windows. That makes it safer than Internet Explorer.
If you have not tried Firefox, download it this weekend. Here’s a link at my site. It’s free and really easy to set up. I think it’s also faster than IE.
I'm a bit of a geek, so I customize Firefox with extensions. These are programs that add functions to the browser. You can learn more about them in this free column.Here's a list of my favorite Firefox add-ons or extensions. They are all free:
- • Stop music and videos from playing automatically on Web pages
• Get IE Favorites in Firefox
• Tools for college students
• Improve your typing skills
• Download Flash videos
• A price protection tool
• Surf Google anonymously
Hope you like them!
