Belive in the Power of Firefox

Now I will not lie, I am not really a man of faith. Apparently though, some Firefox users are. For these users that are a little more religious than me, I have for you the Faith Browser.

Make the internet a reflection of your values and your faith with these simple tools. One tool builds a Bible verse into your browser. The other changes the appearance of the buttons. Together, they help you keep your faith close at heart whenever you are online.

Firefox 1.5 vs Opera 9

The browser wars are getting better and better each and every day. It seems like all of the big three (Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer) keep trying to out perform the next one. Now we have seen dozens of reviews looking at all three. This time around though I want to point you to an article on Firefox 1.5 versus Opera 9. The author makes a lot of valid points, and there is a lot of good non-bias information within.

Firefox Wins the Browser Wars?

firefoxlogo.jpgWell I have to say this headline caught my eye as well, so I did a little further reading and found a very interesting view from one side. Personally, I’m not sure if Firefox should celebrate the victory just yet.

The Browser Wars was the ongoing battle between Internet Explorer (from the blood-sucking programmers at Microsoft) and everyone else. Everyone else includes a bevy of web browsers from front runner Firefox to Opera, Netscape, and Safari. All of these competitors offer great alternatives to Internet Explorer but have fallen short in adoption due to Explorer’s monopoly-like control in most computers that run Windows.

PONG! Multiplayer

Playing pong might not be anything new, but how about multiplayer pong? With the PONG! Multiplayer extension for Firefox you too can challenge your friends and foes in a battle of pong combat.

This extension also features a full blown chat application. Chat with everyone in the Multiplayer lobby, or just with your opponent while playing a game. Want to take on your best buddy? Just type the nickname or ip-address of a friend, and he/she will get invited to play a game against you.

Optool – Fast Browser Switching

For those folks out there that are looking for another way to flip between browsers, I introduce you to Optool. I found this tool via Chris, and I do have to say for coming in such a small package (112 KB to be exact) it packs a lot of punch. You can switch between Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera by default.

You can plug your own browser into the mix, if it isn’t one of the big three. It is yet another good way to do a little quick browser switching.
