A Million Reasons to Use Firefox

There has to be at least a million reasons to use Firefox, right? That is the idea behind the Web site, The Million Reasons. Here are a few good ones:

#120: Time is money. Firefox is super fast – like a jolt of lighting compared to Safari and Explorer – both painfully slowwwwwww.
#49: Updated Frequently
#206: it makes ramen (I didn’t know about this one!)

Have a friend or family member that isn’t sure if they want to switch? Send them to read this list.

A Preview of Firefox 2

Firefox 2 is coming closer and looking better every day. The “spell-as-you-type functionality for text fields” looks pretty interesting. It might keep me from typing words into the Google search box every time I’m not sure how to spell something. The “ability to manage the search plugins” is my other favorite new feature to look forward to. Right now there isn’t a pretty interface over this, and I really think there should be one.

Redirect Remover

Redirects on links are usually more annoying than helpful. Some are put there to act as “click counters” while others really have no point at all. Can we just get rid of them so we can travel on to the next Web page? That doesn’t seem like a big problem to me.

If you want to do just that, pick up the Redirect Remover Firefox extension.

Ever been to a Web site where you wanted more information, but didn’t want to give up your personal E-mail account? Creating a disposable E-mail address for those Web sites is a good way to protect the E-mail accounts you like the most.

Without disposable E-mail accounts, you are bound to run into endless amounts of spam and garbage. Minus the cape and funny tights, here comes the Create Disposable E-Mail Address Firefox extension.
