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! Find out the details about plugin management with Firefox. http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/firefox-linux.html
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.

Get the word out to beginning Linux folks that KLUG offers support and education just for them every month. Feedback would be helpful.
