September 21, 2009 Leave a comment

For many, the web browser is one of the most important applications they use. This is simply because of the high amount of time most people spend entertaining themselves or working from the web browser. Some web browsers are very fast, some have add-ons, and some file browsing features. Doesn’t it make sense to use a web browser that meets your needs and works well with your hardware specifications? Linux distributions are compatible with plenty of good web browsers so don’t just settle for the default. The article of the day today at was written by Steve Emms and titled 10 of the Best Free Linux Web Browsers. It has some great information about individual web browsers and what they’re good for. Make sure to click on the browser links within the article to get the low-down. What’s your favorite web browser and why? Please comment explaining why you voted the way you did.


How to Pause Downloads in Firefox

Pausing downloads can be important if you’d like to start a download, close Firefox, and come back to the download at a later time. To do this simply open up Firefox and find a file you’d like to download.

After selecting Save File your download will begin to download automatically. Here we can see the status of the download along with two icons to the right of the status bar. The first one is a pause icon and the second a stop sign. Press the pause icon to pause your download and come back to it later. Press the stop icon to completely stop the download.

After pressing the pause icon you will see that the download status stands still. The pause icon is now a play icon and clicking it will begin the download right where you left off.

This screen shot shows the download completed successfully.
