A Great Free Alternative To Internet Explorer.
Firefox Web Browser.
The Firefox web browser is developed by The Mozilla Foundation, is an open source software, meaning that it is free for anyone to download and use, is a super fast web browser and a great alternative to Microsoft’s Windows Internet Explorer.
Firefox has some great and really useful features and I am going to describe the ones that I use and like below.
Firefox is a tabbed browser, meaning that you can have several web pages open in tabs at the same time to enable you to switch between web pages quickly, a very useful feature if you are comparing information between two or more websites.
A very useful feature is the ability to create your own Firefox account, this will enable you to store all of your bookmarks, passwords, history, add-ons, preferences and settings and synchronise them across all of your devices that you have Firefox installed on, so that whatever device you are on, Firefox will remain the same.
This also allows you to keep your Firefox just how you like it and should you want to move to a new PC, or if you have to re-install windows because of loss of data etc, you just download and install Firefox on your PC, sign in to your Firefox account, press the sync button, and hey presto your Firefox will re-appear with all of your customizations and settings just as you last saw it.
Functions can be added through extensions, created by third-party developers of which there is a huge selection. It is this feature has attracted a massive following of Firefox and resulted in large downloads of this browser.
Web developers find Firefox really useful with extensions such as Firebug to help them build websites.
There are many add-ons that can improve the user experience such as the ones that I use and I have listed some of them below,
Web 2 PDF Converter
Download Manager S3
E Web Print
The way Firefox looks can also be customized by changing the theme so you can make it look just the way that you want. These are just a few of the features that are available to use within Firefox that will enhance your user experience.
In conclusion, Firefox is a superfast, fully customizable web browser that you can make your own, so are you using Firefox Web Browser yet? Or maybe you have found a plug-in or extension that you think is fantastic if so it would be
great to hear about your user experiences so please feel free to leave a comment below.
