i got redirected to mozilla.com and you can't find Mozilla suite there, i'd thought it was really gone!!!! but mozilla.org still has it.
anyway, what's the difference between Mozilla and Firefox ?
i tried Mozilla once, didn't like the appearance, seemed to be just the same as Firefox. Firefox has more extensions though. saw no point to it (for me at least).
what am i missing ?
Firefox is a lot leaner and meaner, so to speak. The interface is a bit more bare, but it's a faster browser than Mozilla. The newest version also has a few great features previously not available like the "Clear Private Data" button off the tools menu that can instantly clear all private info during the browser (or can be set to clear it on exit, so cookies and other crap don't stay in the browser cache). It's the first browser I've used that I liked the tabs on, and it's totally made me hate IE6 for not having tabs.
Extensions are the other big thing for me. I'm using the following:
Adblock Plus: Block any annoying ad quickly and easily. Note: I only block ads that are highly annoying (read: flash ads that up CPU usage, blinking/musical/pop-up-or-under); I don't block banner ads unless I'm paying for access to a site that has them, it's only fair that ads are the price I pay for a free service.
PDF Download: If I click on a link to a PDF, it offers the option to download it, or view it in a new tab. It also shows me the size of the PDF, making it easier to make the choice.
BugMeNot: Ever get sick and tired of websites that are "free" but require you to give away every bit of private data you have to use them? BugMeNot lets you get around this, so you can read the New York Times online and other sites without violating your privacy.
Allow Right Click: In some, but not all cases, this extension allows you to right-click on objects in web pages that have been locked to prevent this.
Image Zoom: Lets me enlarge images within websites. Especially useful to get a better look at photographs for some online auction items. It's very flexible.
Session Saver: I only use this one at work. Ever have a Microsoft update that wanted you to reboot, but you have ten tabs open in Firefox and really don't want to have to open them all up again? Session Saver keeps track, so if you reboot and open the browser, it will ask if you with to resume your last session or clear it. If you resume, it brings everything back.
There's a few other great ones out there (I loaded one for my dad that tells the weather forecast in the browser status bar based off NOAA data) but it's just so flexible. I wish IE had stuff as useful as this. Not the best option once again for a corporate environment, but for power users, it's unbeatable.
