Underreported Firefox Features

Everyone knows about tabbed browsing, adware and popup blocking, extensions and themes, but are you familiar with Firefox's other distinguishing abilities?

  • Find Bar: just start typing to search a page, and there is no box in the way (be sure to try "Highlight").
  • Smart Keywords: turn the address bar into a veritable command-line.
    For example, you can set up bookmards with keywords to:
  • Live Bookmarks display RSS feeds as folders, each link a bookmark.
  • SmartFind bookmarks, which have no friendly user interface yet, but the examples can be copied and modified to suit your needs. Think of them as saved bookmark searches. Even LiveBookmark items are included, making this a nifty aggregation tool!
