Firefox -- Yeah!
Posted 15 November 2004 - 10:16 AM
Clickgarden has served me well, but it's a bit slow at times and Firefox sounded like it had everything that I currently use with Clickgarden, plus more when you add in extensions.
I've been playing with Firefox now for a day and so far, I'm totally loving it! I found lots of great extensions and they all install easily and work like a charm. I've got the Adblocker (which is something I had with Clickgarden and would totally miss if I had to start seeing ads again). Plus I've got the Google PR and even Alexa rankings (not that I care, but it's neat to see!). I've got a Gmail checker, the user agent switcher, and probably a few other things. I can search Google, Yahoo and a whole bunch of other engines, with the flick of a switch. I can even do a backlink check in Google, Yahoo and MSN with one click.
Firefox totally rocks!
Anyone have anything else neat that I should add in?
IE is really gonna be in trouble I think. They better start coming out with something similar, soon!

I made a jump this morning myself. I've been using firefox for a long time, but I finally made it my default browser today. I can always open up IE to see how pages display in there.

I 3rd that... plus check out the TabBrowser extension - allows you to configure evey aspect of your tabs.
Mouse gestures come in handy too - get a bit of getting used to but when u do you dont know how you lived without them

Agree with you on the developer toolbar, Lilo! Sweeeeet.

I just installed the Noia 2.0 (eXtreme) theme... pretty sweet. I liked the orbit too.

Due to major power outaages here in NS, I am in our village library today. I must try to convince them to intall FF:) I really miss those tabs and mouse gestures.

Also if you click the tools dropdown, one of the options is "themes"
I use the dev tools on another machine, which are outstanding.
The biggest thing for me is the mouse gestures. They're great! The only problem I have is that i tend to try to use them in other applications...not too bad until I accidently drag something off the screen or spend 10 seconds doing it over and over trying to figure out why it won't go back...
Oh and the "view source on selection" is the handiest little feature ever.
