The World’s most loved browser and its fans are grearing up for a Guinness World Record. That’s right. A Browser is going to have a guinness world record for the number of downloads which happen on a single day (24hrs). I’m sure no other browser can beat this record and no other software can ever attempt this.

Quick Online Tips is one of the blogs that I regularly visit and have some great reading. Being a fan of Google, Firefox, WordPress, Blogging & Technology, there are few more blogs like this one which have the same passion as i do. If you are a blogger and a techie, and if you never came across this quick online tips, check it out now! It was hosted with blogger.com previously and now with wordpress script and now has its own domain. The advantage is that, one can customize a wordpress blog for extreme features which blogger.com or any other script does not provide. And no support is as good as wordpress.org community. WordPress fans like me feel happy to see these big blogs migrating to wordpress.
Well, if you are looking to setup your own blog and dont know where to start, you can just ping me from my contact page.
I was downloading windows messenger live after ajay invited me to use it. The download asked my passport login and I agreed the terms and saw the download button. I was surprised to see that the download is not clicable! I was using Mozilla Firefox. I had to open the invite in IE to download the messenger. As everyone knows, Firefox is the right competitor and the capable enemy for IE in terms of usage but that doesn’ t mean microsoft sites are not browsed by firefox. What kind of treatment is this?
You can clearly see it in the screenshots below.
I am sorry I couldnt show the hand icon when we take the cursor above the button. In screenshot, that icon dissappears.
Anyway, this is true!
Screenshot in firefox: (showing a disabled text button)
Screenshot in IE: (working text button)

There is one plugin for firefox that is currently talked about.
Its from Performancing. Its called Performancing for Firefox.
Its definitely a bloggers love. I have been using it since its first release day and there is a new version now supporting technorati and delicious. I had a chance for a sneek preview as a performancing user and was one of the first few people who had a cnahce to test it. Now its public as Nick promissed. If you are a firefox user and a blogger and dont have the plugin yet, you are defenitely missing something.
Download it here: Performancing for Firefox 1.1
There was tabbed browsing in opera and then the supercool firefox without opening n mumber of windows.
And then there was Tabbed browsing in IE(which is a flop).
Now there is combination of browsers in one.
The New IE Tab Firefox extension lets you open any website which you are viewing in firfox to view it in IE and the IE window will be opened as a tab in firefox itself. you can see it in the screenshot.
Download it here: IE Tab – Firefox Extension
This is one browser the techies and bloggers love to use. As a blogger myself, and internet freak myself, firefox is not just comfortable but is unique and ranks as the top used tool on my computer. I am sure its the same for millions of its users who eventually turn lovers of firefox.
Very recently, I could get a look a the stats of a portal website, where I observed that firefox is picking up a lot faster.
Here is the screenshot for you all:

The Referral system started with Google a while back. And then Google Introduced Firefox Referrals which didnt allow the feature to be used by internation users. But they finally allowed the system internationally. But the referral images were all in white color. A few days back some colour image options were introduced. Not so impressive but yes they might help some colorful blogs and sites.
But ultimately they have to make the referrals colour-free and the colour options to the users.
These are the added ones:
