Firefox

I admit it, I dragged my feet on the whole "Download Firefox. It rawks!" bandwagon. But I have dutifully downloaded Firefox and used it for a few weeks, and now (because I know you are on the edge of your seats!), my review...

  • I really like the multiple tab function. I was the queen of having 57 windows open, so I dig on this function, though I had to keep reminding myself to actually USE it.

  • Ditto on the navigation toolbar that you can customize in the top right corner. I love having iMDB, Amazon, Google and more in my eyesight, but I keep forgetting it. Years of going to the URL box, I suppose!

  • I really haven't had a chance to use the "syndicate" button that Firefox displays on some sites, but I'm gonna one of these days...

  • I like the display for the "find on this page" function

  • My biggest beef right now is my Yahoo Mail, actually. I downloaded the "fix it" for Yahoo Mail, but it still won't let me customize my emails with fonts, colors, etc. Maybe there is a new fix? I still use IE for Yahoo, but tend to use Firefox for all else.

  • I've noticed some sites that load slowly, or load the wrong fonts on Firefox, but I'm pretty much used to it by now.
Overall, I give it thumbs up! Rock on!
