Well, it has been over a year since I messed around with the design of FirefoxFacts.com, so I thought we were long overdue for a new look here. I have tried to both simplify things and make the layout and design more user friendly too.
Some of the most noticeable changes include:
- Bigger fonts/easier to read posts and pages
- Better search, dropped Google Site Search
- Simplified the navigation too, you can easily jump from categories to related "facts" to the next post in the archive all with one click
I really hope you enjoy the new look, and tell your friends to come visit too. Thanks for reading Firefox Facts, and there will be plenty more Firefox tips, themes, add-ons, tutorials and more in the future.

Now I know many people don’t like pandering to the audience for things, however I do want to let you all know it is really easy to follow Firefox Facts in a number of different ways.

Be sure to check out the new “Best of Firefox” page via FirefoxFacts.com, for a true collection of every best of list I have put out there over the years.
Today is a special day, because it marks the 4 year anniversary of the start of Firefox Facts. Starting 4 years ago as a spin-off project related to the e-book and Firefox articles I had been writing for Lockergnome, Firefox Facts has expanded by leaps and bounds, and thankfully has drawn in a fan following of it’s own over the years.
I won’t go on and on about it though. I just wanted to mark this special occasion and thank you for making this web site the success that it is today. As long as you keep reading, I promise to keep pumping out as much content as I can to all my projects, including Mitchelaneous and the Web Hosting Show too. Want to give Firefox Facts a birthday present?
Go share the RSS feed with a friend, family member or your own cult following.
In case you missed it, here is the new FirefoxFacts.com layout and design I have been working on for the past few weeks. Let me know what you think!
It is live now, if you haven’t checked it out yet. I have added a lot of nice features, fixed a lot of design flaws and hopefully, all the big changes have been done. Will probably be doing a few more small tweaks here and there – but overall I am pretty happy with it.
As some of you might have noticed, there were no new posts yesterday. This is due to the fact that we are in the middle of a big server move for Firefox Facts. No more cheapo hosting account for us. We have gotten just about everything moved over to FastServers.net. After the recent surge of popularity after the Firefox 3 release – I realized it was time I looked for help from the pros, and well FastServers.net is about as pro as you can get.
So all is going fine here, and if your not seeing this post now, you should within a couple of days. Then again, if you can’t see this post how would you know your missing it? Quantum theory aside, expect the same ol’ Firefox goodness, just at a new home.
What can you do to help? Get your friends, family and even that creepy Internet Explorer loving neighbor of yours to come visit and also pass them our RSS subscription link too. Did I also mention you can get e-mail updates too?
