Firefox 2 Roadmap

Now digging through this information to find out what is coming to our favorite browser might now be the most fun thing you can do with your Friday morning. The Mozilla team has updated the Firefox 2 Roadmap with a few intresting notes about what you can expect to see in the future.

Go check it out, and let me know what you would like to see them tackle first.

Link Dragging

Links don’t have to be such a drag. We all use links on Web sites in different ways. Some of use might be happy with clicking our day away and staying in one tab. Did you know that in Firefox you can drag any link on a Web site to the address bar to open it up in that window?

Another quick tip is dragging the link to an empty space on the tab bar. If you do that, it will then open the link up in a new tab. Now go out and change the way you drag your links.

Firefox Facts – Free eBook and Web Site!

Ok, so maybe raving about the Web site being free isn’t the big selling point. Firefox Facts is my latest big side project to make it’s debut. What is it? It is both a Web site and an eBook. The majority of the thanks goes to Bob and Chris at Lockergnome.com for creating an eBook out of my ramblings. So what does each side of the project offer?

Firefox Facts (the eBook) gives you over a hundred different Firefox tips and tricks to get you going with the world’s favorite alternative browser. All of them are neatly organized in a PDF file for you to read where you want and when you want. What is the best thing about it? It is totally free!

FirefoxFacts.com is going to become the home for the quick tips, reviews and Firefox news. I’m no stranger to Firefox articles, as I have been writing them for Lockergnome’s Web Developers for some time now. This will become one more outlet to help you get your Firefox fix. Make sure you subscribe to the RSS feed as well.

Leave a comment about the Web site and the eBook and let me know what you want to see.
