Yawn-proof software training

Explorer, Chrome, Firefox… oh my!

Recently, you may have seen a notice being shared on Facebook, Twitter, and other social sharing sites about the online dating site “Ok Cupid” interrupting access to their own site for users of the Mozilla Firefox web browser, the ban has since been lifted. Our post today is not to debate their reasoning for the interruption, however, it is to address the “What’s Firefox?” question we heard over and again since it all started. 

What do you mean, “What’s Firefox?!?!

While we’re certain that if you’re a regular reader of this blog, you likely already know your browser options alternative to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer; if you’re new around here, please read on to learn more about your options.

Chrome: Developed by Google Inc., initially released for public use in 2008. Available for Windows, Linux, OS X, Android and iOS (Download: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/)

Opera: Developed by Opera Software, initially release in 1994. Available for Windows, OS X, Linux, and FreeBSD (Download: http://www.opera.com/)

Firefox: Open source programming developed by Mozilla Corporation, Mozilla Foundation and contributors. Available for Windows, Firefox OS, Linux, OS X, Android, iOS FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and OpenIndiana (Download: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/)

Each of these web browsers may be downloaded directly from the developer sites for no charge. And since they may also be run simultaneously on the same machine, there’s no reason to choose only one. You may select your favourite as a default and still maintain the option to open and run the alternatives should you desire. Personally, I have each of these installed on my computers for testing websites and HTML display variances between the browsers.

    The majority of my computer training focused on Publisher. I have received positive comments and feedback from several of my colleagues on the changes between my first attempt and current expertise creating the monthly internal newsletter for my department. They enjoy the updated format and the way in which the information is presented. 

    Deborah assisted me through a learning curve, as I had not previously had any exposure to this program prior to joining Rama. She also provided me with a refresher course on PowerPoint and Excel.  Deborah is a patient teacher and tailored the training to suit my job requirements.
