Contest Concludes | Firefox Tips & Shortcuts

Folks, the SUPERAntiSpyware drawing is now closed. I will post the names of the lucky winners tonight at 5pm. Again, I tip my geek hat to the good folks there at SAS, and I thank them for their generosity.
And now, a quick tips &tricks posting.

After a recent update to my Firefox web browser, an unusual thing happened. Upon restart, instead of open to the standard “You’ve just upgraded Firefox!” page, it opened to a “Tips & Tricks” page.images.jpg

This page has 5 tips each in Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced “levels”. I hate to confess.. but I found a few I didn’t know in each one.

There are tips on shortcuts, bookmarks, plug-ins, downloading, and more. Some are Firefox 3 specific, but most are ‘generic’.

It will only take you a few minutes to look over, and if you use Firefox, I believe you’ll be glad you did. Click here to visit the Firefox 3 Tips & Tricks page.

Today’s free download: Firefox 3.5.3 Web browser from Mozilla. “There are literally thousands of totally free ways to customize your Firefox to fit exactly what you like to do online.”
