Mozilla Firefox vs. Google Chrome Beta

I have been using Google’s Chrome Beta since it was released. It is has few differences when compared with Mozilla Firefox. These are my comparism

Clear Your Firefox History With Stealther Addon

Most sites usually have cookies embedded in the site. So when you visit the site, a cookie is injected into your browser. This cookie enables the site’s administrator to know his site statistics. Also, cookies enable you to browse the net faster. By this, I mean that if you type in some letters of a website in your address link, you will see some websites URL that fits to the letters you have type. You can use the up and down arrow or the scroll bar to select the site you want. Having cookies on your browser could be bad because it stores your information like your IP, your name, your address etc.

Clearing Your Browser History

To manually clear your history, press Ctrl + H , select the day(s) you want to clear. Left click on the day(s) (this open the link on the same window) and press delete on the keyboard. Or instead of left clicking on the link, right click on the day(s) and select the delete option.

Instead of going through this little pain, just down the Firefox Stealther addon. The Stealther addon allows you to surf the web withour leaving a trace on your pc. The Stealth addon does this

– Browsing History (also in Address bar)
– Cookies

From the addon review, there are some complaint about the stealth addon. The complaints include like the stealth addon doesn’t delete all the history. Some complaints are that the addon delete every history from the browser. i.e the history you have when you turn off the stealth addon. The reviews are here. Download stealth addon

Protect Your PC with NoScript

The NoScript is an addon on Firefox Browser. Script are small programs that can be written in varieties of computer languages. NoScript allows active content to run only from sites you trust, and protect yourself against XSS (Cross site scripting).

The NoScript addon is important because it doesn’t allow malicious programs to be installed when you visit a site. NoScript can prevent you from installing virus when you click on links from your email such as the CNN.com Daily Top 10 spam and the msnbc.com – BREAKING NEWS
