Check out the newly introduced and enhanced feature set in Firefox 3.5
This feature has been introduced in the latest version of Firefox. ‘Private browsing’ enables users to surf internet without leaving any traces in browsing history of the web browser. It was the only feature which was already being offered in Google Chrome and Apple Safari but missing out in Firefox until the latest Firefox 3.5 release.
Firefox users can now pick from over 6000 Add-ons to enhance their web browsing experience. A huge population of web services have already created their Firefox Add-ons and thousands are in the pipeline.
Enhanced Smart Location Bar
As you keep using Firefox for a while, it learns from your browsing behaviour and starts suggesting you on the basis of your past surfing activity. Whenever you type in a term, the Autocomplete function includes possible matching sites from your browsing history, as well as sites you’ve bookmarked. This saves you both time and efforts. This feature has been enhanced in the latest Firefox release.
There’s a ‘star’ icon at the end of the address bar, which needs to be clicked only once for the particular website to be bookmarked. If clicked twice, Firefox will show the folder where the bookmark has been stored and will also give you the option to ‘tag’ your bookmark. You can rename the folder according to your choice or suitability of the website for organizing your bookmarked websites in a proper way.
Instant Web Site ID
If there’s a website where you are supposed to enter your financial data such as credit card credentials, it is advisable to verify if the website is an authentic and legitimate website or not. You can now check out the site’s Web site ID, another authentication measure, by clicking on the favicon of the website. This gets you an instant identification of the website being viewed.
