More News Items

Firefox: Many are using the free Mozilla Firefox web browser and for good reasons. It is an excellent choice and has many "enhancements". For Windows users it is an absolute must for security reasons and I'm continually amazed that many haven't heard of it yet. Please help spread the word to your Windows using friends. You can find Firefox at: www.mozilla.com/firefox/
Many of the add-ons like the built-in weather forecasts and other helper programs are available at: addons.mozilla.org/firefox/

McAfee SiteAdvisor: One that is not available directly from Firefox is McAfee SiteAdvisor, this tool gives you a small color coded "heads-up" about whether the web page you are visiting is ranked as a safe location or a malicious one. I'm finding it very helpful. Find it here: www.siteadvisor.com

Toolbars: Google and Yahoo booth offer specialized toolbars that add personal aids like access to mail, auto fill-in, highlighting and other cool features. Google's toolbar: toolbar.google.com Yahoo's toolbar: toolbar.yahoo.com/firefox/

Google HomePage: Speaking of Google. The next time you search there, click the link called Personalized Home. You can set your Google page to display all kinds of helpful and fun items from solitaire games to traffic alerts.
