Mozilla Firefox 3.5: Need for speed
Mozilla Firefox 3.5: Private Browsing
Any browser worth its salt these days has a porn mode, and with version 3.5, Firefox now has one as well. It's called Private Browsing (Internet Explorer's is called InPrivate Browsing), and it works as advertised. When you browse the web using it, nothing about the session is stored - no history, no cookies, no temp files, no forms information, no search information, nothing that can show where you've browsed or what you've done. To turn the Las Vegas tag line on its ear: what happens in Firefox doesn't stay in Firefox.
To use Private Browsing, Select Tools, Start Private Browsing, or else press Ctrl-Shift-P. Unlike with Internet Explorer, a new instance of the browser doesn't launch. Instead, a warning appears, asking you if you want to start a Private Browsing session and telling you that Firefox will save your tabs if you want to start one.
Mozilla Firefox 3.5 then closes your existing tabs, and immediately launches a private browsing window. From here, browse the web as you normally would, and nothing of the session will remain. To end the Private Browsing session, close Firefox as you would normally, or else select Tools, Stop Private Browsing, or else press Ctrl-Shift-P. The current session ends, and Mozilla Firefox 3.5 launches with all of your previous tabs intact.
There are other nice touches for those who don't want other people to know what sites they've been visiting. You can remove all the traces of a site you've visited while you were in a normal browsing session.
This eliminates it not just from the History list, but also kills all traces of the browser on your computer, including cookies and temp files, search history, forms you've filled out, and more.
To use this feature, first open your History list by choosing History > Show All History or by pressing Ctrl-Shift-H. Then right-click the site you want to remove, and from the menu that appears, select Forget about This Site.
You can also remove all of your history and other data related to your browsing session from the last few hours or last day. Select Tools, Clear Recent History, or press Ctrl-Shift-Del. From the drop-down list on the page that appears, choose either the past hour, the past two hours, the past four hours, today, or everything.
You can also fine-tune what to clear by clicking the Details button; it lets you determine what data to remove - browsing and download history, forms and search history, cookies, cache, logins, etc.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
