Should I join the Masses of Bloggers?

I’m not sure how frequent this little weblog will be. I know quite a few people who want me to get some sort of weblog, whether it is at LiveJournal,Blogspot or one of the other websites. I’m not too keen on the idea though, not sure how much I’d write or what I would write about.

In any case, I figured that if the urge ever strikes me to write about my life for all the internet to see, I might as well just make it a part of my own website. 🙂 So, if you want to know about the events in my life, here is the place to check! The only drawback of course, is that readers can’t comment on each entry, like they can at those official blogging sites, but in the meantime, that is fine.

I guess I will take this first official post to proclaim my love for all things Mozilla. If you aren’t using Mozilla, or one of its offspring to surf the web, allow me to ask, “WHY ON EARTH NOT??” Perhaps you aren’t aware of the numerous security holes that Internet Explorer has? Mozilla and its derivatives also have some other pluses going for them. The browsers have popup blocking built into them. That alone should make it worth it. There is support for tabbed web browsing as well, which is a feature I have truly come to love: nothing like having a dozen web pages open at once, but all within the same browser! On I.E., you’d have a dozen different windows open to do that, plus all the popup ads that undoubtedly litter most web sites.

Another feature, (though this takes some computer nerd skills) is that you can set Mozilla up to actually filter out certain images from a web page. I have mine setup to eat all those banner ads that are a specific size, not to mention any picture coming from a directory named /ads on a web server. Makes my browsing experience much better! This feature is somewhat more difficult to setup though, as you have to edit some configuration files.

In any case, I highly recommend that you download a derivative of Mozilla called Firebird. You can find it here.

And with that, I leave you with Mozilla’s own marketing campaign 🙂
