| We’ve put together a list of 30+ must-have Firefox 3 extensions that we know 
| you’ll enjoy, whether you’ve upgraded to Firefox 3 and are looking for 
| something new to add to your browser, or have yet to make the upgrade and are 
| looking for a reason.   


Yes, Firefox does Phone Home Everyday

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday there was some concern raised over at Reddit because someone had 
| noticed that both of Mozilla’s flagship products, Firefox and Thunderbird, 
| call home every 24-hours. This happens regardless of whether you go into the 
| Firefox preferences and disable all of the different types of updates. Why 
| then does Mozilla’s products phone home then?    


Sounds like Windows 'update'. They ought to fix this.

| new security enhancements with this major release. Feel free to comment on
| your experience with Firefox 3.0.


Streamlined Firefox 3 makes browsing safer, more productive

,----[ Quote ]
| Firefox 3 is a wonderfully crafted release. It has new features and
| improvements all across the board, from the user interface to processing CSS.
| The release pays special attention to security, and in keeping with the times
| allows users to replace desktop apps with Web apps for tasks such as replying
| to email. Mozilla has also added smart features to existing components, like
| the download manager, bookmarks and history organizer, and add-ons manager.
| Despite all the new bling, Firefox 3 isn't bloated, and in a variety of tests
| comfortably outperforms previous Firefox releases.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
