Firefox Facts has finally finished moving from our old sponsored hosting account from another hosting provider, to a brand new (and powerful) VPS hosting account. What is a VPS hosting account, and what does this mean for you, you and you over there? Check out the details on my fantastic other website, Mitchelaneous.com.
With Firefox 4 being right around the corner, are all of your favorite add-ons and themes going to make the cut? In my own opinion, I think that the drastic changes in both the backend of Firefox and the visual frontend will lead to a lot broken add-ons and favorite themes. Hopefully though, this will not be the case once Firefox 4 is ready for the general public at large.
I have a quick and easy tutorial you can all do (as long as you are on Facebook, that is). I have started up my own fan page for Firefox Facts and my other projects – and here is how you can make sure you do not miss any of the awesome tips, links, videos or anything else I post there for you.
Did you know that Opera already has a Tab Candy-like feature? No? Neither did the anybody else apparently.
I have a very simple question for you this Friday. Do you still use the home button in Firefox, or have you eliminated it to save yourself a little more browsing room? According to a recent study on the navigational hot spots within Firefox, Home is still ranks 37.6% as far as the most popular interface features go.
So leave your thoughts in the comments. Is the home button still relevant in your day to day browsing, or have you ditched it?
Ever wonder what parts of the Firefox browser navigation get used the most? Mozilla has released a heat map detailing the information they were able to get from Test Pilot submissions back in May of 2010. Here are the top ten more popular spots in the interface.
The exciting Firefox feature to be added in the release of Firefox 4: Beta 2 was App Tab support. The idea behind App Tabs is simple. You are able to keep a favicon only tab open and pinned to the browser at all times. Now yes, you can do this with the help of add-ons in Firefox 3, but I am excited to see this feature make its way into Firefox 4.
Seems like over the past few days, there has been a new fake Flash update scam going around, trying to scam Firefox users. It tells users that they have just updated to the “latest version of Firefox” but the hook here is it says you have an out of date version of Adobe and tells you to download it.
Tab Candy is the most exciting Firefox feature I have seen in a long time. The problem we all have is it becomes harder, as the day goes along, to keep our tabs organized. We all multi-task, and the regular horizontal tab toolbar with ten to twenty open tabs is not helping us. That is where Tab Candy comes into play.
It looks as if Dell is going into the browser business, with its virtualized version of Firefox. The idea here is to provide the users a virtual instance of the browser, so that malware and other bad things can’t reach your main system files. This in turn would reduce your overall exposure to drive-by malware attacks from websites that might host malicious code.
