Browsing into Firefox

August 24, 2006

I think the number one reason that I started using Firefox, was for a
feeling of independence. I felt like a rebel not using Microsoft stuff.
It felt good exploring new territory. I had tried out several other
browsers before I found Firefox. They were kind of fun, sorta fancy,
but not real effective. I started getting into web development about
the same time that I started using Firefox. They go hand in hand in
this category. Getting “plug-ins” and “extending Firefox
is probably the easiest thing to do. Remember that the more extensions
you install can possibly have an effect on your browsers
characteristics and performance. Don’t worry though, they are easy to
un-install. I joined this community rite off the bat (Spread Firefox).
When you think about it, We are a large community! But when you look at
it, we are just a stone in the shoe of Internet Explorer. Hey, it’s a
long walk and were feeling no pain. It’s interesting to watch it grow
like this. See the live down load numbers at the top of the 101blog page. Thanks for stopping by: (SW)

Firefox, now is the time!

August 19, 2006

Now Google has teamed up with FireFox to offer the
Google
search tool included with the Firefox web browser

It’s fast and easy to download. Just click on the
button in the upper rite corner of this page (my Fire fox blog) to get started:

I’ve used FireFox for a couple of years now and I’m very happy
with it.
Ive noticed that it doesn’t crash as much as Internet
Explorer did and I surf the web much faster. A feature I really
like about FireFox is how easy it is to customize your browser and add cool new features.

After You’ve Downloaded FireFox: Get it on this page (my Firefox blog) in the top rite corner.

  • There are literally hundreds of extensions available.

    acts with
    Themes. Themes are sometimes known as browser “skins”. You can get them
    by clicking this browser theme link.

  • Flash,
    Adobe Acrobat,
  • Apple QuickTime by clicking this link to Browser Plugins.

“The Free Kind of Downloads”!

August 14, 2006

When I first got online I fell in love with down loading! “The Free
Kind of Downloads”!
I must have down loaded and installed hundreds of programs. I have
weeded out the flops, scams, spy ware and just plain old crap! Most of
the time it is just trial and error. A person has to go through quite a
bit of installing and just playing with the programs to see how you
like them. There are allot of really good programs out there for free!
Here are a few of the free programs that I really like. I keep a web
page of free down loads here. thegate101.com/geek
Thats here.
