The 12 best Firefox 3.0 tweaks

Filed under
Moz/FF

One of the things we love about the new Firefox 3.0 web browser is its wealth of extra features, from the site identification button to the Bookmarks Library.

We've got the simple ways to access all these great Firefox 3.0 features.

For example: the 'about:config' function lets you change a number of Firefox settings and preferences, and is a great quick way to access the features we've rounded-up.'

To access this function, simply type 'about:config' in the address bar and press Enter. A message will appear saying 'This might void your warranty!'.

Ignore that nonsensical warning and click 'I'll be careful, I promise!'. In the filter box, type the name of the setting you want to adjust. You'll see that entry appear in the area below. (If the name of the setting is very long, typing the first part of it will generate a list; you can then pick the setting you want). Make the changes to the setting as instructed.

While I've been writing about Intel's Beignet project since early 2013, it's probably been about a year now since I tried out the code, which is developed by Intel's OTC graphics team in China. This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
