Firefox is official
I've been extolling the virtues of Firefox, the free internet browser that is daring to take on Internet Explorer
, for a couple of months. I was getting fed up with popups, spyware and overall computer operations which seemed to be caused by problems embedded in my Microsoft package.
I installed Firefox
a couple of months ago and everything has been fine since; I still use AdAware
as a diagnostic tool, but, unlike before, I haven't found anything I didn't want. A particular feature I also like about Firefox is the tab function; related pages can be loaded within the same window. Above all, this browser is free. This is not to say that Jakartass is a tightwad, but rather it has been developed in the true spirit of democracy and free speech. It is not controlled by Bill Gates or, heaven forfend, Rupert Murdoch.
Firefox has been downloaded 8,000,000+ times
, a remarkable number given that it is only being officially launched today
If you are viewing this page with Firefox, then you may notice that I have signed up for a Creative Commons licence
. What this means is that some of my writing is pure me, the Indonesian Highway Code
for example. However, given that the majority of my posts are, like those of the majority of bloggers, either plagiarised or are piffling and of ephemeral interest to me and thee, dear reader, then please feel free to make use of them as you will ~ with proper accreditation and trackback of course. This is acceptable
as it isn't too blatant a ripoff.
And if you don't know what trackback is, nil desperandum
