Firefox, the browser.

I am one of the millions of die-hard fans of Firefox across the globe. Even after the launch of Internet Explorer 7, I like it for its speed, its security features, its live bookmarks and most importantly itsopen source nature, which allows thousands of independent developers to develop firefox addons and firefox extensions to give it more versatility.

Firefox addons are best part of Firefox, with more than about 200 addons available for you to download and have fun. Firefox addons like FoxyTunes (MP3 player), AdBlock Plus (block ads), StumbleUpon (website discovery), DownThemAll! (download functions) and Web Developer (web tools) are probably the most useful and popular of them all.

If you still don’t use Firefox,

Here we present you five small keyboard tips and tricks, which will make your firefox more faster and pleasurable.

5. ALT-D : Quickly move to Firefox Address Bar

Before typing a new URL in the address bar, press Alt-D. The cursor will move to the address bar and the existing URL will be highlighted. Type the address of your new page.

4. CTRL-Enter: Type “www…com” quickly

Instead of typing full http://www.webtoolsandtips.com completely, just type webtoolsand tips in the address bar and press Ctrl-Enter. See the magic, “http://www.” will be prefixed and “.com” will be suffixed automatically.

3. CTRL-Mouse wheel spin: To enlarge or shrink page font size

If you found a webpage, where the font size of the text is either too large or oo small, no problem. Hold down the Ctrl key and rotate mouse wheel. Font size changes incrementally. Great useful tip.

2. CTRL-T: Launch a new tab

My favorite.

1. SHIFT-Click a link: To open the link in a new window

Simple, no need to explain further.
