Ok i just discovered that firefox is free and i just dl the latest version of it and started to use it. and I didnt see much of a difference with firefox and IE :uhm:. Firefox seemed a little faster when loading pages. But thats about it. But it also had some problems. Like it wouldnt let me copy and paste pictures. It would have some different stuff. Anyways I think firefox is all about the plugins right? Well could u tell me where to get plugins? Which ones are good? Since im new to firefox i dont know much about it.... Thanks anyways.

Well Firefox has indeed some great plugins, head for the Firefox website plugins part. And Firefox has less security holes, I think, Tabbed browsing, you can make it faster, but when I think about it, yeah not that much difference, but I use it always.

You can copy and paste images by right clicking them and selecting 'Copy Image Location'. Firefox has some brilliant features. See this article for details :)

You vist forums...

I will post my favorite Extensions.

BBCode - BBCode allows you to copy images, and paste them, With the "[ img ]" tags. You can change the color of text, or add bold, or italic fonts, with a simple right-click. It even has a few smileys.

Rating... ****

SessionSaver - Ever had your browser crash out, when viewing a website, then realize you forgot to bookmark it? Don't you wish it would just open back up to that same page. SessionSaver does this, and more. SessionSaver supports restoring Firefox to the last site(s) you visited, when you closed it. restoring all tabs to the correct pages. SessionSaver also supports "Snap-Back" pages. If you accidentally close a window, or tab, you can use that option to bring it back.

Rating... *****

Forecast 0.5.9 The older version looks better with the Noia Extreme, and Firefox Modern themes. The newer 0.7.x versions have better features, such as radar.

Rating... ***

Firefox View - This extension adds an option to Internet Exploder's (ahem, Explorer's) right-click menu. It allows you to open any page your viewing, in Firefox. Usefull for when old habits kick in, and you accidentally open IE. Inspired by the "IE View" extension.

Rating... *****

Launchy - Open any Link in one of a dozen support programs. Such as browsers, or media players.

Rating... *****

IE View - This one stinks. It only does one thing, and a bad one at that. (j/k) It adds an option to your right-click menu, to open a page in IE. If the page doesn't work, or you need something in IE, it helps. Launchy can open links in IE as well. IE View just does one thing, but it does it better than Launchy.

Rating... -*

J/K, Actually, I consider the Rating... ***

It is too easy to take potshots at Internet Exploder. :D

FLST - Focus Last Selected Tab. This extension switches to the last tab you used. Sometimes it is usefull, and sometimes it is annoying. You can switch between recent tabs, by clicking on the active tab. Try it, and see if you like it.

I use the following, all of which are very useful: Disable Targets For Downloads - Prevents download links from opening blank windows/tabs. Adblock - self explainatory, godly. Bandwidth Tester - Useful, sometimes. Seems to have been buggy lately - I think development has stopped in the beta stages. Download Manager Tweak - adds more dynamic options to the download manager, making it a proper download manager. FoxyTunes - a media player integrated into Firefox. Linky - allows you to open pictures and other media in their own window (I use it for web design) Nuke Anything - allows you to remove any object from a page, such as annoying images. This will become exceedingly useful when Firefox starts to support SVG's. ChatZilla - integrated IRC client for Firefox. vBrowseit - allows the opening of pages in a virtual browser, useful when trying to hide your identity ;) Tab Browser Preferences - additional options for tabbed browsing - very useful for stopping new windows opening, you can tell it to open them in tabs instead. View Formatted Source - opens the HTML source of a page using color codes, and also includes options for viewing sections of the page from the source. DragToTab - allows you to drag files such as music or HTML files into a new tab to open it. PONG! - integrated browser game, great when you're bored. colorZilla - extremely useful tool for web designers - allows you to hover the mouse over a color and be told the HEX and RGB values at the bottom. Web Developer Bar - adds an array of functions, such as the ability to validate the HTML, CSS, JS etc. of a page with the click of a button.
