Most people who switch to Mozilla or Mozilla's Firefox browser quickly notice that the browser is pretty bare. It contains exactly what you need to browse the Web -- no less and no more. And while there's a lot to be said for running a lean, clean program, sometimes you long for more features, a little extra functionality. Enter Extensions, little programs that you can add to Mozilla or Firefox to make the browser do what you want it to do. There are now close to a hundred extensions available for downloading. Most work perfectly; others are a bit buggy.
Building a Better Mozilla
Last week, there were two separate reports of flaws in Microsoft Internet Explorer that could jeopardize your security. One flaw made it possible for pop-up windows to install programs on your machine that could steal banking records. Another flaw, in both Explorer and a Microsoft web server program, made it possible for a hacker to implant malicious code in an otherwise legitimate Web site that could, once again, steal your data.
Need Another Browser?
Hi' Gemal. Great site..
About Linky. Is it just me, or is it not possible to link-open selected text that doesn't have a known protocol-specification? Eg.:
If not, I really suggest it, because the "Open Plaintext"-ext does that and it is very useful...
Anders, I can open the link just fine.
The one thing I've noticed with Linky is that sometimes when I select a text link the option 'Open Selected Text Link' is greyed out. However, all I have to do is move the mouse arrow to Properties (or any option but Linky) & then when I move it back to Linky the option is no longer greyed out.Comment by Brian at July 11, 2004 07:29 AM | Permalink
