Mozilla Firefox has over 6,000 add-ons to customize and enhance your web browsing experience. Categories include blogging, tools, entertainment, humor, news, privacy and security, and more. You can add style to your browser with skins and themes.

Or, equip your browser bar with a dictionary or add a media toolbar with games and other forms of entertainment.

Firefox 3.5 features the innovative use of open audio and video. With HTML 5 audio and video support (and the Ogg Theora open video format), you can expect a richer media experience with fewer format problems and plug-ins getting in the way. You can even save a video directly from the site to your desktop.

Firefox has tabbed browsing so you can quickly jump from site to site and open more than one website in the same browser window. Firefox also allows you to change the order of your tabs, and has a redo function for when you accidentally delete tabs. And now Firefox even has a single-click option to open new tabs, and the ability to pull a tab off and create a new window. There is an add–on for voice interaction so you can navigate the Internet through simple voice commands.

Firefox's integrated find-on-page function is slick and non-intrusive. You can easily find a word or phrase on a specific webpage without dealing with a pop-up window; Firefox puts the feature right into the bottom of the browser.

The innovative Smart Location Bar will adapt to your use and preferences. This handy tool makes it easy to return to websites you've previously visited, even if you don't remember the exact URL. The smart location bar helps you locate sites based on titles and content. The improved "Awesome Bar" has been refined and now includes privacy settings. One-click bookmarking makes it easy to organize your favorites. Firefox 3.5 also now includes anti-phishing, a pop-up blocker, password manager, and parental controls.

Another nice feature is the anywhere drag and drop, which allows you to drag text or a link from anywhere on a web page and put it directly into your search bar.

Ease of Use

Firefox is well organized and intuitive. The browser has an easy–to–use interface that has all the essentials but isn’t cluttered. Firefox features are powerful and useful, yet simple. Firefox 3.5 has several additional features that further improve usability. A fully integrated spell checker allows users to work directly on the web and still have spelling errors checked. Another great function is an automatic session restore. When Firefox reopens you pick up where you left off, even if the browser closed unexpectedly or by accident. It's really nice to not have to spend time getting back to where you were. Session restore restores text you were writing in an email and even downloads you might have been in the middle of.

The Firefox download manager is easy to use and integrates simply with the browser interface. The download manager gives you the ability to pause downloads and then pick up where you left off. This straightforward resume function is even available after a system restart.

Security

Finally, Firefox has integrated private browsing. With Firefox 3.5 you can easily enter and leave the private mode, browsing seamlessly in complete stealth. Furthermore, unlike other browser privacy modes, there is no noticeable icon or change to the interface in private mode.

Firefox protects against viruses, spyware, malware, phishing, and pop–ups. Firefox 3 has an integrated password manager, automated updates to help locate and fix security problems, and parental controls.

Another impressive browser security feature is the one-click site info. Simply click on the site in the location bar and you can view important safety information.

You can easily clear your personal information including history, cookies, passwords and web–form entries with the click of a button. New to version 3.5, you can even remove all traces of your visiting any specific site. Think of it as a selective private mode that can go back in time.

Summary
