Bill Gates's worst nightmare a Miami teenager?


Modest pioneer: Blake Ross. At 7, he was a computer game addict. At 17, he made the breakthrough that created Firefox. At 19, he is a student of computer science (DAVID ADAME)

A MIAMI teenager is basking in the glory of helping to create a new internet browser at 17 that is now challenging the grip of Microsoft, which once held a virtual monopoly on web surfing.

Computer analysts say that Blake Ross’s browser, Firefox, is a faster, more versatile program that also offers better protection from viruses and unwanted advertising.

Not only that, the system is offered free over the internet and its codes and technology are all accessible as an “open source” programme. Firefox has already been downloaded by an estimated 15 million users since its launch in November, making it the world’s second-most-popular browser.

Industry experts have dubbed the new software “Microsoft’s worst nightmare”, according to the technology magazine Business 2.0. It hailed Mr Ross, now 19, as a software prodigy. He is also a talented pianist and “an unbelievable creative writer”, according to ...

Cammie,
Have you tried right clicking the link? this should bring up a dialog box with an option that says "save target as" and you use the browse tab to choose the folder/drive you would like to save it as and you can rename it. This should download and save the whole sermon for you! I hope this helps!

here is what to do step by step:
1. left click the download the mp3 link
(note, if it asks for your email, just click later and it will take you back to the page you were on to start again.)
2. When the small dialog page pops up, right click the link and select 'save target as'
3. remember where you put it for quick finding later.
I don't know why this wouldn't work using IE or Firefox you should have no problem.

Thanks everyone for all your help!

Firefox options are to save the link.

Love the Firefox protection

THANKS AGAIN!

Cammie, all you do is start the installation process, and if memory serves, the Firefox program should ask you if you want to import the book marks from your IE browser. There should be some help files on the www.mozilla.org website, besides.

I wouldn't say a lot of your problems come from your browser, but from your mail program, Outlook. If you download the whole set up, Mozilla, or both Firefox and Thunderbird, you can hear rid of all that Microsoft junk.

With Microsoft, at the minimum you will need a good firewall such as T. A. thts is free, and you should have spyware removal programs such as Adaware and/or Spybot--that are also free. This should take care of your problems from the Internet. However, if you have been operating for a while about the programs you should have a good antivirus program such as Norton's to check things out on your Windows system. The worst place to get viruses are programs that you picked up at work!

Cammie: Can you switch back and forth between your old web-browser and your new Firefox web-browser?

Most viruses come by way of your web-browser.
Firefox is a web-browser, and was designed to filter viruses before they are passed on from the web to computer-users.
Web browsers have millions of times more power and knowledge to do that, than does a home, or office, computer.
Only EXTERNAL-media can infect your computer.
Viruses may come from a CD, a web browser, or a poorly-designed system-up-grade, etc.

I really like the idea of a safer internet experience with Firefox.

I'm even downloading the Firefox browser RIGHT NOW.

However, I'm Wondering...is it 'difficult' to begin using?
*how do I 'surf' on firefox instead of aol's built in browser (which IS I.E. isn't it??)
*I'm thinking I just 'ignore' the aol URL (go) line totally...and run firefox.
Right?

If I have the address right, the latest FireFox can be downloaded at:
www.mozilla.org
Yes, it works very well. If you are not enslaved to Outlook, you can get the whole Mozilla package, and have an excellent mail program, which helps immensely in sorting out the spam from the good mail. They are excellent programs, they work on Windows, and they are free.

It would be more of a nightmare if µSoft's major product was web browsers. It happens to be apps & operating systems.

BTW, to you web designers out there, stop assuming everyone uses IE. Ever heard of compatibility testing? Or standards?

At the recommendation of the computer people at my work, I switched to Firefox. I like it. It automatically suppresses pop-up windows.

Oh, but it won't let you use SermonAudio's emoticons.
