Midori: Extremely Fast and Standards-Compliant

| Midori is a lightweight GTK web browser which uses the popular WebKit 
| rendering engine. I installed it on my Eee PC netbook to see if it could 
| replace Firefox for light browsing.  


Test Drive Firefox 3.1 Beta 3

,----[ Quote ]
| Today Mozilla released the third beta for the next major Firefox update, 
| version 3.1. Firefox 3.1, which will likely be re-numbered to Firefox 3.5, 
| will have one more beta before the final release this summer.  
| The most significant upgrade coming in Firefox 3.1 is the new Javascript 
| engine, TraceMonkey, which is enabled by default in Beta 3. I tested its 
| performance with the SunSpider Javascript benchmark. Firefox 3.1 performed 
| 1.6 times faster than Firefox 3:   
| Firefox 3.1 Beta 3    1914.6ms +/- 6.2%
| Firefox 3     3082.8ms +/- 0.2%

| Beta 3, the next milestone on the road to the browser's first major upgrade
| since June 2008.


Top 40 Firefox plugins, extensions and add-ons

,----[ Quote ]
| Firefox is a very useful and feature-rich browser, we all know that. But
| aside from being a robust Web browser, Firefox is appealing to more
| sophisticated users because of the support that it gets from third-party
| application developers.
| These developers continuously enrich Firefox’s functionality through plugins,
| extensions and add-ons. Here are 40 interesting and useful Firefox tools to
| give you a pleasant and fruitful browsing experience.


Why is Firefox so popular?

,----[ Quote ]
| The only field where Firefox beats all competitors is when it comes to
| extensions. Though there an amazing amount of well-designed and useful
| extensions (or widgets) for Opera, and a few extensions for Internet
| Explorer, the real master of extensions is Firefox. Its open source code
| combined with a decent market share apparently is a very attractive
| combination to developers and resulted in more than 5000 Firefox extensions
| in just a few years (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/customize/), and
| the number of extensions is growing rapidly.
