That’s right, FireFox 3 just launched today. They are actually attempting to set a world record for most downloads in a day. If you are using FireFox already, why not upgrade today? I just thought I’d share this, as my Google analytics shows that a large majority of my members use FireFox. FireFox is the fastest internet browser out there. They are far more superior than Internet Explorer. To support this I will outline a few reasons why I made the switch.
About six months ago I was using Internet Explorer 7. I’m using a desktop computer that is connected wirelessly to a network. While I realized it would be a little slower than the networks computer, I never thought it would be that slow. So one day I realized, everybody keeps talking about this FireFox browser, why not check it out? I tried it, an hour later I uninstalled IE7 from my computer.
When making the switch to FireFox, they will bring over all of your favorites. That way you don’t lose them. There is a cool feature where you can save all your login information, and all you have to do is enter a masterpassword when you open the browser, and they will be filled in for you as you go to these sites. A spell check is built into the browser. Everytime you have an error in a word, it will underline it for you. There are also hundreds, of thousands, of applications you can add. Personally I’ve gone with SEOQuake which gives information like Google Page Rank, Google Index, Alexa Rating, the age of the site, and many other things, Quick Note which lets me quickly open a note pad and save little bits of information I need, and there are several others I use as well.
So if you haven’t made the switch, now is the time. You don’t lose your favorites when upgrading, or switching. It’s worth a try, and it will speed up your interenet browsing by a noticeable amount.
