It's not even 36 hrs since we got a Net connection @ home...and I've spent a substantial part of this period in downloading some developer tools.
Any self-respecting techie would have surely tried Firefox at some point in time. I've been using it since it gained prominence, and never bothered to look back.
Last evening was dedicated to creating multiple user profiles, and hacking my profile to an extent that would make it impossible for tyros to handle. Look at how Spartan the toolbar has become. The navigation buttons are all gone! And it's still possible for me to surf with absolute ease. Well, the interface could be made more scant. In fact, it's possible to make all traces of the browser disappear from the screen!
Addendum: I've just removed the status bar, integrating the progress bar with the address bar. It's like gradually stripping a hottie!
