How Firefox Works How Firefox Works Presentation Transcript

  • How Firefox Works
  • Basics • The easiest way to learn about Firefox is to go ahead and download it (it's free). • You can find it at the official site: http://www.getfirefox.com. • The Awesome Bar isn't just a place to type in Web site URLs. It's linked to your browsing library.
  • Features • One of the most noticeable is tabbed browsing. • Firefox comes with a few useful features that set it apart from earlier versions of Internet Explorer -- so useful, in fact, that virtually every other browser, including Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari and Google Chrome, has also adopted them.
  • Extensions • Firefox extensions range from the indispensable (ad blocking) t-o the utterly silly (an extension that changes the Options menu's definition of "Cookies" from a technical explanation to "Cookies are delicious delicacies"). • Here are a few of the more notable extensions.
  • Security • Firefox simply handles security differently from Internet Explorer. • Where Internet Explorer uses security zones, which can sometimes be confused by malicious software, Firefox does not rely on zones.
  • What's New? • One of the criticisms some users have for new versions of Firefox is that it doesn't support all the extensions you could add to earlier generations of the browser. • But if a particular extension was really popular in the previous version, there's a good chance a developer is working on a new version.
  • Problems and Concerns • Does Firefox mean anything more than another option for users fed up with what they perceive as slow development and rampant security problems with Internet Explorer? • As Firefox grows in popularity, Microsoft feels more pressure to compete with added features of its own.
  • Thank you!
