Firefox Facts has been around a long time. As some of you might know, this website’s roots come from back when I worked at Lockergnome. It was Chris Pirillo’s idea to create this website and the free ebook at the time and since then it has turned into one of the most popular Firefox tips websites out there today. However, now I need your help. I would like to hear your feedback about how I can improve Firefox Facts and make it better for you.

You have read my thoughts and opinions on Firefox and everything related to Firefox – so why not join me in sharing the word about how awesome this little browser really is. Starting today, I am going to start accepting guest posts here on Firefox Facts. So, if you have your own Firefox tutorial, add-on review or anything else Mozilla related that you’d like to share with the over 75,000 visitors that come to FirefoxFacts.com monthly – here is your chance.
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.
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.

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.
