  2. 2. Mozilla Firefox Firefox is an well-improved web borwser, made for browsing the Internet (obviously). It has been developed by Mozilla Labs., and earned it’s place in the “web browser war” because of it’s large gamma of addons and extensions, useful for each and every user ; <ul><li>Each addon is developed for users, by users ; </li></ul><ul><li>It makes the navigation through websites easier and comfortable ; </li></ul><ul><li>Bloggers could take advantage of these addons for information they may not find out in such an easy way. </li></ul><ul><li>Firefox already passed 1 billion users, which let’s admit… it is something ; </li></ul><ul><li>For me, this browser is the proof that from zero you can reach high rates by working hard and developing for users. </li></ul><ul><li>Page 1 </li></ul>
  3. 3. 1. Introducing Echofon <ul><li>Echofon was initialy called TwitterFox, the name clearly suggesting it’s usage for Firefox. </li></ul><ul><li>It then evolved and at this moment I don’t have any idea if it’s still a Firefox addon. </li></ul><ul><li>It is one of the best Twitter clients from which I know. </li></ul><ul><li>I use it and I find it very fast. </li></ul><ul><li>In my opinion, the info. is easily received and observed, the replies and direct messages are brought to you while browsing. </li></ul><ul><li>Page 2. </li></ul>
