Hi friends,

   Here are some tips and hacks to make your browsing more enjoyable experience.

1. How to use Firefox as a news reader or how to add a live bookmark

If you see an orange button on bottom right corner of the page 
[For example in my blog go to http://www.livejournal.com/users/pravi]

Click on it and you will get a menu to choose.

[In this case choose RSS. Other cases you may get a list of feeds to choose]
then the dialogue box will come to chose the folder to save. Select
the position you want.

Now from the bookmarks menu when you go to the link it will open as if
a folder and the links are loaded live !

Even though most sites are configured properly you may come across
sites which offer RSS feeds but now orange button on the bottom right
Go to manage bookmarks from bookmarks menu and choose add live
bookmark and change the properties. The link can be obtained by right
clicking on the feed link and selecting copy link address and pasting
it to the bookmarks dialogue.
[Note: In GNU/Linux you never need to ctrl+c and ctrl+v ! but select
and paste using center click (the scrolling button or press both right
and left button at the same time]

To be continued .......

A proud GNU user
