When I began thinking about starting a blog a few weeks ago this was going to be my first post . . . followed by some other web tools I love . . . a few other things got in the way, but here it is:
I gave up Internet Explorer a year ago, maybe more. I had read about Firefox as an alternate browser in a few places, and figured “it’s free so why not”? Here is why I have kept it as my primary browser:
🙂 I like to have lots of tabs open (I have 6 right now) and with Firefox I can easily open a link in a new tab (especially great when a page has lots of links I want to check out without losing my place) and move tabs around.
🙂 I can customize my search options. There are 231 search add-ons available. Here are the ones I use:
🙂 It remembers my passwords (I also have another tool I use for passwords . . . but that is a post for another day).
🙂 Searching page text is so easy.
🙂 The add-ons are awesome. The ones I use daily at home and at work are Adblock (what ads on the side of Facebook?), Delicious (more about that one another day), and Twitterfox. I also use some of the more basic functions of Firebug and Colorzilla when working on the church website.
Have you tried Firefox?
