Firefox Features

Tabbed Browsing

Firefox comes with a few useful features that set it apart from Internet Explorer. One of the most noticeable is tabbed browsing. If you are browsing in Internet Explorer, and you want to visit a new Web site while keeping your current one open, you have to open a completely new browser window. Intensive Web surfing can result in browser windows cluttering up your taskbar and dragging on system resources. Firefox solves that by allowing sites to open in separate tabs within the same browser window. Instead of switching between browser windows, a user can change between two or more different sites by clicking on the tabs that appear just below the toolbar in Firefox.

Update notifications

The update mechanism works cool! Firefox shows us the list of updates that are available and offers us to download. It is not limited to the base code, but for the extensions and themes.

Live Bookmarks

Livemarks are a cross between aggregation channels and bookmarks - Live Bookmarks if you like. If a page has an RSS feed, a lightning icon appears in the fourth box on the status bar, and clicking on it lets you choose a Livemark to add to your bookmarks. The livemark then appears as a folder, with its items as bookmarks in the folder. It's quite a basic but potentially useful function. It Supports Atom/RDF/RSS feeds.

Secure sites

If you are connected to a secure site, then the address bar will have a padlock by the arrow on the right and the background will turn yellow. The padlock also appears on the status bar as normal. Therefore, if the address bar isn’t yellow, then it’s not safe to give over credit card details. IE6 can only manage 128-bit, so your data is even safer with firefox.
