Introduction


Mozilla Firefox, or simply Firefox for short, is a free web browser, one of several that are now available for use in navigating the Internet. These days, there is strong competition in the browser market, with Internet Explorer, Chrome and Opera all being viable free alternatives to Firefox. All four of the major browsers offer more than adequate performance and security features, such that none of them has a significant advantage based purely on speed, security or key functionality.


So what makes Firefox worth considering as your primary browser? The simple answer is that Firefox is the most customizeable browser on the market today. Through a huge range of free add-ons you can change almost every aspect of Firefox's interface and features to better suit your needs. This is what truly sets it apart from the other browsers.



Whether you're a first-time user or a veteran, this Firefox Tweak Guide brings together a range of resources to help you get the most out of the browser. The guide provides all the information you need to know about all of Firefox's features, and how you can use them to your advantage. It also covers a variety of ways in which you can customize and optimize Firefox for your system. Most importantly, it is written in a user-friendly and objective manner, rather than being a jargon-laden fanboy tribute to Firefox. Finally, although it's been around for many years, the guide has recently been given a thorough overhaul to coincide with the new look of Firefox 29. Give the guide a try and discover the full potential of Firefox.





Note: This guide refers to Version 32.0.3 of Firefox and newer. The guide is designed specifically for those running Firefox on Windows, however many of the feature descriptions, tips and tweaks also apply to Firefox on other platforms. Make sure to check back regularly for updates.
