Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Firefox 3.0.2 now available

Tip of the day: Mozilla has released a new update for its extremely popular Firefox Web browser. This update closes two “critical” security holes, and fixes several bugz (for details, click here), and I suggest Firefox 3 users get and apply the update.

Today’s free download(s): Folks, we here at T4E Headquarters encourage you to give an “alternative” browser a test drive if you have not already done so. (‘Export’ your Favorites/Bookmarks to a .htm file, and then ‘Import’ them into the new browser.) Without question Firefox is the most popular alternative to IE– and with good reason considering the multitude of capabilities you can enjoy when you discover Firefox Add-ons. Go on, give it a try, visit the download page here.

Also, we strongly advise you keep all the programs updated with the latest patches. Visit the for a quick scan: “The Secunia Online Software Inspector, or short OSI, is a fast way to scan your PC for the most common programs and vulnerabilities, thus checking if your PC has a minimum security baseline against known patched vulnerabilities.” [note: you can also download the more robust Personal Inspector here too]

* Since this post, 3.0.3 has become available.
