5.0 out of 5 stars Firefox for Dummies a first time user, 13 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Firefox For Dummies (Paperback)
The Author, Blake Ross, describes the Firefox web browser in a clear, helpful style.
As one of the original developers of the program, he is able to explain how the features work and also why they were presented in that way. He includes an interesting history of how Firefox was started as a free alternative to Microsoft's
Internet explorer.
A beginner on Firefox will find in the book an good introduction to organizing
bookmarks (called favorites by Microsoft). Although Firefox is compact and fast there is a section on downloading extensions (extra programs) to customize it for each user. The book covers every aspect of Firefox as well as a section on avoiding hackers and has two concise Appendices on the menus and Keyboard shortcuts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but dated, 7 Nov 2010

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Firefox For Dummies (Paperback)
Firefox for Dummies is written by one of the creators of this excellent Internet browser. The book is clearly written and helpful. It is useful to have by you if you are uncertain about venturing into unknown territory. There are two reasons for not giving it the full five stars. The book was published in 2006 and refers to Firefox 1.5. We're up to version 3.6 in 2010 and the book doesn't cover some of the new features. The other is that installing Firefox is simplicity itself and most users will not need a book.
