[edit] Accessing the Web

Fedora uses Mozilla Firefox by default to access the World Wide Web (Web). Firefox is a multi platform, standards-compliant Web browser.

Features of Mozilla Firefox include:

  • Tabbed Browsing: Separate tabs for each Webpage are provided, all within one Firefox window.
  • Extensions and Plugins: Various extensions and plugins are available that support new features, such as search fields directly in the toolbar.
  • Small and Fast: By focusing on providing an extendable Web browser, Firefox is smaller and faster than other browers

[edit] Starting Firefox

You can start Firefox by selecting Applications > Internet > Firefox Web Browser or by using the menu panel icon:
