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