Mozilla Firefox Web Browser Overview

For more than 10 years I have been using the “Firefox” browser in my daily work on my PC and have gained a decent experience, which I hasten to share. This article is an introductory FAQ for beginners, which reveals and demonstrates the main features of the browser. This article is also a guide to setting up Firefox for beginners. So to say, “read before use.”

Most users simply install the browser and use it as is. Naked Firefox loses to WebKit browsers in a number of ways.

Modernization of old PCs

I note right away that the article has been for several years and it was left on the site for a change. It is clear that now on the market there is a great variety of solutions and you can buy almost everything. However, at times there are situations when it is the ingenuity and the hands that grow from where it should be helping out. In general, such things are being done, which is called just for fun.

It’s about the case of the PC system unit. It is clear that this is primarily a supporting structure for its components. I believe that the ability to provide ventilation inside the system unit is much more important than its appearance, since this factor is fundamental in the issue of the durability of the entire system and its fault tolerance.
