This add-on for Firefox is update and fully supported (Just in case you were let down on previous IE Tab extension). It allows you to open websites up in Internet Explorer from within Firefox. Even these days, you still run into websites that need Internet Explorer. If you run into this a lot then this extension is for you.
User-Agent Switcher can quickly and easily changes your browser’s user-agent. There are 25 popular user-agent strings to choose from too.
Need Internet Explorer? Fire-IE is another ietab-like extension. It embeds the IE engine to handle IE-only websites. You could change the browser engine from Firefox to IE by a simple click.
Missing the way Internet Explorer 5 looked on an old Mac? Well, this theme is a ‘bit of a throwback to another era. The Internet Explorer 5 Mac theme lets you relive the glory days of another browser through Firefox. This theme is for Firefox 20 and further so check it out and let me know what you think of it.
Here is a Internet Explorer 5 Mac edition theme for Firefox 20 and further. Really want to make Firefox look a little more like a Mac-powered Microsoft coded browser? Then this theme might be perfect for you. You can pick up this Firefox theme from the Mozilla Add-ons website.
Your web browser history is something you should be able to take around with you, no matter the browser you use. Unfortunately it is not in any browser’s best interest to talk to each other, so you must rely on a third party to get the job done. Infoaxe does the trick.
What are you to do when you need to switch to another internet browser in a hurry? Sure we all love Firefox, but some of us use maybe two or three other browsers for the Web too. How can you quickly leap into Safari, Opera, Chrome or even Internet Explorer from Firefox? Very easily.
Open Links in Chrome – As the new kid on the block, it took some hunting to find a good way to switch to Chrome in a hurry. The Chrome View add-on for Firefox is what you need. This extension lets you open the page your currently viewing in Firefox, via Google’s new Chrome browser.
Open Links in Internet Explorer – Switching from Firefox to Internet Explorer is something we have been doing for some time now. There are two great add-ons that allow you to do this. The first is IE View. This extension gives you the ability to open any page you have open in Firefox, in Internet Explorer. An even better alternative though is IE Tab. IE Tab will embed Internet Explorer inside of your Firefox tab, so you don’t really even have to switch browsers.
Open Links in Opera – Ah, yes Opera. The girl at the dance with all the features that nobody uses. Just in case you might want to hop over to Opera usage for a while, there is OperaView. This too will give you a new context menu item that will let you open the target link in Opera. Great for web developers or people who just like to be “different”. (don’t worry, we won’t tell anybody)
Open Links in Safari – Lastly, the new pretty boy on the block (at least for Windows users) before Chrome took the spot, Safari switching can be done with an add-on too. Safari View (mac) and Safari View (win) get you from Firefox to Apple’s browsing delight very quickly.
I got a surprise in the mail yesterday, there was a large Publishers Clearing House sized check laying by my mail box from our friends at Microsoft. Seems like they think they can buy me off and have me sell Internet Explorer to the masses.
You know what, if you saw all the zeros that came after the one on this check you would do the same thing I am about to do. Who needs Firefox and Mozilla? Here are your Internet Explorer Facts!
Who Wants to Customize the Look and Feel?
Internet Explorer doesn’t bother me with the ability of being able to decide what the browser looks like. That damn Firefox keeps tossing themes and customizations I can make to the browser interface. Who needs it? I just want a browser with an address bar and those wonderful Internet Explorer icons.
Add-ons? Extensions? Who Needs Them?
Oh please Mozilla. Are you doing to tell me that your users know best when it comes to picking additional features to add via extensions or addons to the browser? Sure if somebody wanted to download a web developer toolbar and the next guy didn’t, is that really a good thing to do?
I know with Internet Explorer I don’t have to worry about getting to customize too much.
Standard are for Sissies!
Come on, Microsoft doesn’t have to live up to standards. IE7 only supports 54% of the CSS 2.1 standard, as compared to 52% in IE6 and 93% in Firefox 1.5 and 96% in Opera 9. Internet Explorer went up two percent, is that not good enough for you? I guess next you are going to say you want the menu bar back on the top of your Windows.
Microsoft has done what is best for you hidden it because you don’t need it. If you do need it, well – we can toss it in the middle somewhere because the day we were working on that was also “cake” day at Redmond.
On an additional note I wanted to let the Opera guys know I got their buyout offer too for my soul. Unfortunately, the bank said they couldn’t cash the “I OWE U” note you left, sorry!
*cough* April Fools! */cough*
In a comparison with Internet Explorer 8, Safari, and Opera 9.5 I think Firefox 3 so far wins hands down. To get a better idea of what you can expect though from the next generation of browsers, Cnet has put up a nice round up of all the latest for you to browse through and see what you like and hate about each.
The section on how it compares to the others was the most enlightening of all:
Firefox remains the best browser on the whole, with great features, impressive improvements all-round, a revised bookmarking system and thousands of add-ons to make it easy to perfectly customise.
The improvements in performance are stellar, it’s got some well-integrated features than everyone will use (resumable download manager, tag-ready bookmarking) and it offers, overall, a better, richer Web experience. We’re behind Firefox and we hope that when the final release is out it’ll be just that little bit better to boot.
More great news for the Mozilla crew! Is there something the other browsers are getting or doing that you wish Firefox 3 would try to do too?
