I, Too, Have Tips For Firefox And Gmail Users

29 November 2004 13:07

Got a wild hair up your butt to try out something on the bleeding edge in everyone's flavor of the month web browser and web mail service?

  • In Mozilla Firefox 1.0, type about:config in the URL textbox and setbrowser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs toTrue. Now go look inTools -> Options -> Advanced. A new option that says "Force links that open new windows..." should appear that will enable you to force new windows to open innew tabs (duh) instead.
  • You can check for new mails that come into yourGmail account via Atom feeds. To do that, you'll need to have a newsfeed reader that supports Atom and then add the feed to your mailbox using this link:http://gmailusername:password@gmail.google.com/gmail/feed/atom/. Substitute the gmailusername and password accordingly (duh).
Remember, it's all experimental. Please point yourweapons of mass destruction someplace else if it doesn't really yank that wild hair out of your butt as claimed.
