What I Like About Firefox

Filed under
Moz/FF

There are camps of people who use different browsers and have long-winded, heated arguments over which one is best. I have no strong feelings about browsers. They’re tools that help get the job done. That being said, if a tool can make my life simpler, more efficient, and fun, I’m more likely to use it. Firefox 3 fits the bill and gives me a lot of gadgets and options that make me smile. Here are a few reasons why I like it.

Password Management

My list of passwords is longer than I care to admit. Sometimes, I forget them. In the Security Options on Firefox 3, I can manage my passwords easily. Firefox asks me every time I enter a password if I want it to remember it for me. If I ask Firefox to remember it, I can view it later, search for it, or remove it. I can also remove individual passwords without losing my entire list. If I’m curious, I can even re-sort the list to see how many times I’ve used the same password for different sites. Um... yeah… it’s not a good idea to do that….

Themes

Themes allow you to play dress up with your browser.

Make Your Mark on the World With Linux

Linux and FOSS have already changed the world, and we're just at the beginning. This is a great time to learn to be a maker, in contrast to being a mere consumer. Clicking buttons on a smartphone is not being tech-savvy; hacking and building the phone is. Some people give Make Magazine the credit for launching the Maker Movement. Whether they launched it or just gave it a name, it is a real phenomenon, a natural evolution of do-it-yourselfers, inventors, and hackers in every generation. Remember Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Hands-On (for Shopsmith projects), photography magazines, woodworking magazines, electronics...remember Heathkit? Remember when Radio Shack was still an electronics store? How about Edmund Scientific? That is still a wonderful playground of anatomical models, microscopes, telescopes, dinosaurs, prisms, lenses, chemistry sets, lasers, geology stuff, and tons more. All of these still exist, and have moved online like everything else. It's a feast of riches, plus we have all the cool new stuff that Make Magazine covers. This is absolutely the best time to be a curious tech adventurer. Read more

Season of KDE

This is my first SoK and hence I am equally excited and motivated to make a niche for myself with my work. The task allotted to me was to finish test.kubuntu.co.uk . My task was to use a WordPress theme and finish the site but I am not a big fan of WordPress themes. So I decided to make my own theme and thankfully my mentor , Jonathan Riddell was on the same page with me. Thus began the first lap , thinking and coming up with a new design. Read more
