Jul 12 Word of the Day
The horrible moment when you realise that you have accidentally done something very slightly wrong which has very bad (usually embarassing) implications for you. This is typically the moment of realisation that you just sent a dirty text message to a close member of family, typically your mother, rather than the intended recipient.
Message: "i'm free this afternoon so come over and fuck me senseless, my parents will be out all day"
Recipient: Mum

One of the safest, most efficient and bullshitless browsers out there (among others such as Opera).

Has the most useful plugins ever created, such as "FlashBlock" which completely eradicates flash ads on web pages that may slow down your browsing, and those annoying "Shoot the Ninja and get a free iPod!" ads. As well as Fasterfox, which optimizes the speed, and many more.

The great thing about this browser is that it DOESNT install crap on your computer without asking you prior to that...Internet Explorer by Microsoft, for example, randomly changes it's homepage, installs adware and spyware and third party crap without your knowing.

With a built in google toolbar (which, incidentally, doesnt take up 3/5ths of the screen like on IE), it makes searching a breeze.

Definitely the way to go for an optimized browsing experience.

Mozilla's answer to Internet Explorer. Firefox includes popup blocking, tabbed browsing, extensions, a download manager, and is much more secure than Internet Explorer, because it doesn't use ActiveX or active scripting.

Firefox supports virtually all the plugins IE does, such as Flash, Java, RealPlayer, etc. You just click on where it says "download this plugin now" and it'll be installed automatically.
When I was a newb, I used Internet Explorer, but now that I know more about how the Internet and computers work, I've switched to Firefox for good.
