INTRODUCTION TO LINUX: SESSION #2 FIREFOX

Presented by Adam Tweddell

More information on the Firefox Web Browser from Mozilla:
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

A Better Web Experience! Firefox 1.5 has an intuitive
interface and blocks viruses, spyware, and popup ads. It
delivers Web pages faster than ever. And it’s easy to install
and import your favorites. Packed with useful features like
tabbed browsing, Live Bookmarks, and an integrated Search
bar, Firefox will change the way you experience the Web,
for the better.

Adam Tweddell used a PC with Ubuntu v5.10 installed and
the KLUG SVGA projector to deliver a live tour of the Open
Source Mozilla Firefox web browser on the Linux desktop.
Adam went through the Firefox menu options, answered many
questions on-the-fly, and explained each application
configuration consideration found in preferences..

He talked about browser plugin software and extensions.
PDF viewer, Sage RSS reader, Flash Player, QuickTime,
RealPlayer , Mplayer, etc. Enhance your compatibility!

OK! So you have Ubuntu installed and everything is configured!
You know how to use your web browser. What is next? E-Mail!
Next month look for Mozilla Thunderbird to be demonstrated.
In the months ahead there is a rumor that OpenOffice.org apps
will be featured. Desktop, web browser, e-mail, word processor,
spreadsheet, and presentation software. That should cover most
people for daily usage.

Please let the KLUG Chair Andrew Thompson, Meeting Director
Adam Williams, or Education Director Adam Tweddell know if
you are enjoying these educational meetings. Get the word out to
beginning Linux folks that KLUG offers support and education
just for them every month. Feedback would be helpful.
