Filed under
Moz/FF

Speed Dial is a feature first introduced by Opera almost four years. It is basically a grid of the top websites you visit. From my experience, this is a very convenient way to get to my favorite websites after firing up the browser. This feature has been adopted by Google Chrome as well. Recently, Opera added more features to its Speed Dial by introducing Live Speed Dial.

Oddly, Firefox has not yet adopted this feature. According to the roadmap for Firefox 9, though, that is about to change. This is what the road map for Firefox 9 says:

Re:Speed Dial Coming In Firefox 9

Seems like wasted effort to me, Firefox will reload the pages you had open when you closed it, seems to work well for me as they are my favorite and most visited sites.

There's also the bookmark toolbar that can be loaded with your favorites. Seems like speed dial isn't needed, but that might just be me.

RE: Speed Dial in Firefox 9

There have been speed dial like extensions for Firefox since Firefox 3.x. Big deal.

Korora 23

  • Korora 23 Screencast and Screenshots
  • Korora 23 'Coral' Linux distro is finally here -- Fedora for the rest of us
    When you decide to embrace Linux on the desktop, it can be quite exciting. There is a good chance you started your computing journey with Microsoft Windows, but now you want something different. While choosing the open source route can be a smart move, it can, unfortunately, be confusing too. What operating system should you pick? Many people choose Ubuntu, which is a solid choice, but some people prefer others. Linus Torvalds, for instance, famously uses Fedora.

This operating system takes the best of Fedora and mixes it with user-friendly software and pre-configured RPMFusion repositories. Version 23, code-named 'Coral', is now available for download.

4 Truths About Working on a Community Project Inside an Open Source Company

I’ve worked at SUSE for just a hair over two years now. Before that time I had never seen the inner workings of an “Open Source Company”. Not in any real, in-depth way. Like many Free Software and Linux enthusiasts, I had always been curious how things operated within companies like SUSE, Red Hat and Canonical. Companies that support, organize and drive such a significant amount of activity in the Free and Open Source world. To me, they seemed somewhat mysterious. What really motivated them? How did they operate? What was it like to be a Linux user who actually worked in a Linux-focused company? Read more
