Comments: Firefox Tips and Tricks


Shortly after testing Mozilla Firefox (then named Phoenix / Firebird) for the first times back in 2002 I became hooked. In a very short time I switched away from Internet Explorer version 6.0 and started to use Firefox as my day-to-day browser for surfing the Internet and also to assist me with software development ranging from testing web applications to web spider and scraper development. For a longer justification of why I (still) use Firefox, see: 10 reasons why I use Firefox.

Read the rest of Firefox Tips and Tricks.


I think that perhaps you meant 'in a very short time I switched away from...' and not 'in a very short time I switched to away from...'.

Which in no way diminishes my delight in finding your site, and in particular your information on turning off typeahead. Very glad to get that info...
