Necklace DIY – How to Make a Firefox Necklace!

For those of you with some craft skills and want to impress your girlfriend, how about making your lover this DIY Firefox Necklace.  Best of all, this necklace looks rather cool and no one will accuse your girlfriend of using the actual Firefox browser all the time.

Firefox Hack – How to Browse the Web Securely and in HTTPS!

For those of you worried about web browsing security, you might want to use Firefox and this HTTPS Firefox add-on which automatically switches your browser to HTTPS whenever it’s detected.

Why I Switched to Google Chrome from Firefox!

Until couple weeks back, I have been using Google Chrome browser as my secondary browser for loading Google-based services.

Mozilla has published its audited financial statements from 2008, reporting $78.6 million in revenue for the fiscal year—a five percent increase from 2007. Aside from a weakened investment portfolio, the browser maker has not been hit hard by the economic recession.

Firefox Hack – How To Stop Automatic Plugin/Firefox Installations In Firefox!

I have recently noticed that some plugins in my Firefox keeps updating by itself and it’s annoying because I didn’t allow this to happen as a user.
