Mozilla has just released Firefox 3.5 a couple of days ago, the latest version of my favorite web browser. If you’re still with the 3.5 Beta version, here is a link to download Firefox 3.5.
Well, if you’ve not been using Mozilla Firefox web browser till now, I strongly suggest you start using it immediately! It is not only more faster than other browsers but also more convenient and easy to use with fantastic functions like Private Browsing Mode.
On the previous beta versions, you could not enable private browsing mode – what you could do is remove your browsing history for just a specific website or just the history of the last few hours browsing.
However, with the release of Firefox 3.5, now you can always start and stop private browsing mode. Here is how you do it.
Make sure you’ve downloaded Firefox 3.5 and not Firefox 3.5 Beta.
Click on the tools menu and click on “Start Private Browsing.” You can also use the shortcut simply by pressing Shift + Ctrl + P (Press Shift, Control, and P keys at once together).
Firefox will ask you to confirm your decision. Confirm it my clicking on “Start Private Browsing” again.
To end your private browsing session, just again click on “End Private Browsing” on the tools menu or again press Shift + Ctrl + P.
As soon as you activate Private Browsing mode in Firefox, all what you’ve browsed, cookies, and data are stored temporarily, i.e., as soon as you end the session, everything will be flushed out with no traces left behind of your browsing history!
Here is a quick but a very useful post on a small Firefox extension which I just used and loved instantly. As we all know, Photobucket is one of the most popular free image hosting service that we have today with them hosting billions of images. Photobucket has recently released a Firefox extension with which you can easily capture images from the internet and upload to your Photobucket account!
This is similar to how ScreenDash works, but most importantly, with this Firefox extension, you can just click on any images that you find on Internet to upload in your Photobucket account.
Install the Firefox Photobucket Extension and simply right click on any pictures that you like while surfing through Internet and click “Upload to Photobucket” and there the image will be in your Photobucket account!
This process is simple yet effective. Users however need to be logged on to their Photobucket account during the first upload and after the first upload users are automatically logged into the site per session. So if you are one of those always searching for interesting photos and storing those interesting photos, this extension will really help you to store your favorite images online with just a simple click!
The latest Beta 2 version of FireFox 3.1 is here now with a lot of noticeable changes such as the new Private Browsing mode, with which you can browse safely, without FireFox storing any data of where you’ve been or what you’ve been up to.
You can not only enable this new private browsing mode with FireFox 3.1 Beta 2, but you can also easily remove your browsing history for just a specific website or just the history of the last few hours browsing, which makes it, as per Mozilla, perfect for holiday shoppings!
This beta 2 version of FireFox 3.1 is available in 54 different languages. The most interesting new features that I found of this FireFox 3.1 Beta 2 are:
New private browsing mode with which you can browse online without FireFox storing any information.
New added function of the ability to remove browsing history for just a specific website or history of the last few hours browsing only, making it a perfect browser for holiday shoppings.
