    Hi guys,

    I have used this addon for a couple of years and its now working on Firefox 3, its very usefull if you want to know the Exif information about photos that people post (If info is kept on file), gives you camera details and setting used etc..

    All you have to do is intall this plug in and then right click on any photo and view properties, if the Exif info exists on the file then it will be displayed.

    Install this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5673

    Test Photo:

    This is what you get for the above photo:

    Image Date: 2006:08:06 14:54:37

    ISO equiv: 400

    Enjoy! :)

    This one is just much simpler, I used that one until this one was upgraded to work with the lastest version of Firefox ;)

    Get rid of IE7 and use Firefox instead :p or you have to save the file to your desktop, right click on it and select properties, then click on more information and its there :p
    I still can't believe people out there still use crap IE!! ;) then wonder why their machines are full of visures and spyware ;)

    I preferred IE to Firefox. Never really got on with Firefox. However been using Safari for a month or 2 and it puts every other browser to shame. The speed pages load up is unbelievable.

    I can see this even better than most seeing as my PC is 4 years old AMD 2.66 and with a chipset graphics card, so it is quite slow at handling graphics. Not now though. And also the computer running faster itself due to not using IE!!!!

    Security for one.

    And that should be enough to make anyone want to change.

    IE is notorious for having more holes than any other software, down to poor coding and integration with M$ Windozs(tm). Because of this integration, its also seen as bloat, meaning it uses more resources and memory than is needed to browse the net. Firefox goes back to the basics and builds on whats needed. Anything else can be added on with one of the many plug-ins available, yet it still uses less resources because its not coded to be part of M$ Windoze(tm).

    You might not see a difference in security, but then you're not a hacker are you? :)

    Once you change it, you will never go back again ;)
    Firefox is also less prone to get your machine infected with spyware/adware ;)
