The 2 books were delivered on time, but I was dissapointed that they were so dated. They were not mis-represented, I just neglected to pay attention to the details of the listing.

I found this book to be a great resource for beginners who are new to Firefox, or an individual that wants to learn more about why they should immediately stop using IE and make the switch! 'Firefox Secrets' is well written with an easy style, not assuming that you are an experienced user, instead it takes the approach that you are new to the joys of using the best browser in the world. Mr. Yeow introduces the reader to the basics of obtaining Firefox, and then quickly goes into the #1 difference that makes Firefox fantastic - tabbed browsing. After explaining what tabbed browsing is and how it can be configured to fit your needs, Bookmarks are examined and then Themes are discussed.

For anyone that is a little bit familiar with Firefox, a look at how to install and configure some of the best extensions on the web is a worthwhile venture, and finally the Author talks about tips/tricks and the available web development add-ins out on the web.

I especially found the web development section to be the most handy. I was already familiar with the outstanding Web Developer extension and have used it for some time, but there were also links to an advanced Javascript debugger, along with other tweaks that the author recommends to improve the web browsing experience.

If you are an expert at Firefox you probably won't learn much from this book, but for any new user or someone who would consider themselves an amateur, I would recommend picking this up because it's very likely that you'll pick up something new -- whether a trick you did not know about or a hot extension, it's unlikely that anyone but the most experienced of users isn't going to learn something new from this text. I found this to be an enjoyable and easy read and I think you will find it worthwhile to peruse as well.

Quite a few Firefox books have made their appearance on the market, and I have the chance to review yet another one... Firefox Secrets by Cheah Chu Yeow. Although not the first to market, it does a good job given the right audience...

Contents: Introduction; Introducing Your New Favorite Web Browser; Essential Browsing Features; Revisiting Web Pages; Dressing Up Firefox; Personalizing Firefox; Tips, Tricks, and Hacks; Web Development Nirvana; Living On The Edge; Index

Yeow does a nice job explaining why Firefox is a desired alternative to IE and why you should be using it. In addition to explaining all the different features in the menu, he also goes into some of the more popular browser extensions you can download and install to customize your browser experience. That's one of the huge advantages of Firefox over other browsers, and it's an area that can't be overlooked. There's also a fairly high level coverage of how the browser can aid your web development efforts based on the built-in debugging tools and the high adherence to web standards.

If you already have a Firefox book, this one isn't going to add much new information for you. Also, if you're wanting to dive into all the esoteric settings with about:config, this also won't get you there. But if you haven't yet switched to Firefox, or if you've switched but haven't taken the time to explore all the power that Firefox gives you, this book would help you out quite a bit...

This is the first Firefox book I've read, so it won't have a comparison to any of the others -- as a few books hit the market soon after Firefox started nipping at Internet Explorer's market share of the browser market.

Chapter 1 kicks off the book with an introduction explaining why Firefox is a first-rate browser and how to install its Windows, Mac, and Linux releases. "Essential Browsing Features," the next chapter, reviews tabbed browsing, searching, downloading, and other features.

I've used Firefox prior to the v1.0 release and I've picked up a few tricks in this chapter. The tips go beyond entering keywords into the search box or changing search engines. However, I found an error -- the book says to left-click on a selected word on any Web page and run a search on the selected word - It's right-click, not left.

"Revisiting Web Pages" dives into bookmarks and how to get the most out of your bookmark file. The tricks explain how to quickly find a Web page that is hidden in your bookmarks somewhere, and you don't have a clue what it is called and the keywords aren't giving you what you want. Also covered are RSS feeds, Live Bookmarks, and memory tools such as using history, managing cookies, using the password manager, and clearing tracks.

Many people love Firefox because it's customizable. One way to make it your own is by changing the theme (look and feel). "Dressing up Firefox" explains how to find and change themes.

Another way to get what you want out of Firefox is through extensions, covered in chapter 5's "Personalizing Firefox." Yeow shows multiple ways of installing extensions and using the extension manager. The chapter works through the extensions the author recommends (he provides a good selection) and how they work.

Intermediate Firefox users most likely want to jump ahead to chapter 6, "Tips, Tricks, and Hacks" and maybe chapter 7, which is for Web developers. Chapter 6 looks at about:config and how to modify preferences through its interface. Then Yeow shows where to find the user's profile, and covers what files are included in the profile and what they do. Find great tips on how to mark unread tabs, shift the sidebar to the right, and disabling annoying 1996 Web site features like blink and scrolling marquee.

"Web Development Nirvana" highlights the tools that come with Firefox for developers and which extensions make development easier including LiveHTTHeaders, Web Developer Toolbar, and Greasemonkey. The book closes out with troubleshooting and information about browser's nightly builds.

The book only has minor shortcomings. The tips and warning sidebars text is smaller than the rest of the book's contents. It might be difficult for some people to read.

While it's nice that a bonus CD came with it, it's outdated (v1.0.3 and the current had already surpassed that by several minor releases. It also has Thunderbird 1.0.3 and the current version as of this review's writing is 1.5 Beta 1.). At least, it doesn't increase the book cost and gives newer users an easier start as they don't have to worry about downloading files. But the site says it's a [...] value. No CD costs that much and none of the stuff costs anything.

It's a well-rounded book written in a friendly and easy going style that should get new users up-to-speed and provide experienced users with tips to maximize the Firefox browsing experience. The book helps you discover this mighty browser outside of what comes in the box or download. The companion Web site has sample chapters available [...].
