Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Mozillize Me

The other day, I downloaded the latest version of Mozilla. In the past, I’ve fired it up from time to time just to check that my web design efforts look reasonably sane in it. But now I’m starting to use it as my primary browser. I normally surf the web with liberal use of “Open in new window”, and I typically have three separate browser windows opened to different pages. So with Mozilla, I’m all about tabbed browsing, which allows me to have multiple sites opened up within the same browser instance.

And the fact that Mozilla is deliciously standards-compliant doesn’t hurt, either.

    I usually have 6 to 10 windows open, so I’m definitely in the “tabbed browsing is cool” camp!

    I switched over to Mozilla a few time ago, after a long winter in Microsoft lands (company’s mostly IE), and I’m not looking back. I would not be able to live without tabbed browsing, mouse gestures, privacy settings, or type ahead find anymore.

    I probably should have said that I typically have at least three browser windows open. For a long time now, whenever I’ve booted my work PC, one of the first things I’ve done was to open three browser windows. One pointed at my company web page, one at my personal homepage, and another for my “morning reading list” (Zeldman, ScottAndrew, Slashdot, etc). Along the way of reading those other sites, I would open more windows up. So more typically I would have four or five browsers going at any given time.

    Plus my email program, SSH session, HTML editor, Windows Explorer, Winamp, etc…. I keep a pretty busy task bar.
