Ok, by now, current Firefox users should have Firefox 3 installed and you’re excited with the new features. But how about new Firefox users or someone who has never used Firefox before?
Firefox is the 2nd most use internet browser (IE still topping the list), and the recent Firefox 3 was downloaded 8 millions times, in 24 hour! Great isn’t it? What makes Firefox different from IE? It is customizable with tonnes of add ons to make your internet browser better, and it is also community based software.
To get started, please allow me to provide you some guide, what you need to know, so that you can get ready if anything happens (I know that even some of our system architects do not know Firefox, all they know is IE).
