…You should be a Firefox 3 power user?

Firefox 3 Robot

If you were among the more than eight million people that helped Firefox set a new world record on Download Day 2008, then it’s time to start tweaking and tuning Firefox 3 to match your needs.

The first stop on your customization journey should definitely be at Lifehacker’s Power User’s Guide to Firefox 3, which digs a little deeper into the program and uncovers shortcuts, tweaks, and even Easter Eggs in the Mozilla monster.

Are you ready?

…Mozilla loves robots?

If you’ve already made the jump to Firefox 3, Beta 5, then go to your address bar and type about:robots for an Easter Egg page with a robot flavor.

(And if you haven’t made the jump, then I recommend you do so, because I love the new features, and I haven’t had a lot of trouble with it so far. If you’re still worried though, check out Lifehacker’s The Complete Field Guide to Testing Firefox 3.)

…You can go back to your Mac for free?

Back To My Mac

Leopard’s Back to My Mac tool is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to access their Mac from anywhere around the world without bringing it with them.

The program is designed to let you “Access and control your Mac running Mac OS X Leopard from any other Leopard-based Mac over the Internet — right in the new Finder”.

It’s a great program, but unfortunately, it requires a .Mac account if you want to use it.

However, if getting back to your Mac sounds like something that you’d like to do, but a .Mac account doesn’t sound like something you need, then check out Lifehacker’s guide to Get Back to Your Mac Without Paying for It, as it will guide you through the process of setting up Back to My Mac on your Leopard computer with tools that are available for free, right out of the box.
