Today is Firefox 3 Download Day 2008, and Mozilla is trying to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloads in a single 24-hour period by asking everyone to download the new Firefox 3 today.
AT&T will soon offer free Wi-Fi to all iPhone users at their more than 17,000 Wi-Fi hotspots in the U.S., including all Starbucks stores.
If youâ€™d like to get in on that action, but donâ€™t yet have an iPhone, then check out UNEASYsilence for a guide on how to use Firefoxâ€™s User Agent Switcher to trick hotspots into thinking youâ€™re on an iPhone, and then granting you full access to their tubes of Internet.
RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, is “a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines, and podcasts”.
The main reason people use RSS is that it allows them to subscribe to sites that they like, and then view that site’s content without actually viewing the site itself. This can be a huge time saver when you’re following a large number of different sites, and allows you to automatically receive new content when it’s available.
For an impressively clear explanation, check out the following video:
To get started with RSS, you’ll need an RSS reader. Many people either use Google’s free online reader, Google Reader, or any of the NewsGator products.
Next, you’ll need to find RSS feeds to subscribe to. Most of your favorite sites probably already have them, so just keep an eye out for the RSS symbol:
If you’re using Firefox, check the address bar, as Firefox automatically looks for an RSS feed and places the RSS logo in the address bar if it finds one.
Once you click on that symbol, you’ll typically be taken to a site that allows you to select your subscription options. It shouldn’t take more than a few clicks, and then you should be all configured and ready to go.
(If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to the DYH RSS Feed for all of the latest and greatest DYH content.)
If youâ€™ve already made the jump to Firefox 3, Beta 5, then go to your address bar and type about:robots for an Easter Egg page with a robot flavor.
(And if you havenâ€™t made the jump, then I recommend you do so, because I love the new features, and I havenâ€™t had a lot of trouble with it so far. If youâ€™re still worried though, check out Lifehackerâ€™s The Complete Field Guide to Testing Firefox 3.)
