Browsing with Mozilla

Mozilla Navigator should look pretty familiar to those of you who have spent any time with Netscape or Internet Explorer.  In fact, you can leap right in and start browsing with little orientation whatsoever, following many of the conventions you're already used to.  At its most basic, Mozilla behaves just like the other browsers:

Type a web address into the Location Bar at the top of the screen.  Click the Back and Forward buttons as needed to retrace your steps.  Select the Reload option to refresh the current page.  A Personal Toolbar keeps your favorite sites a click away.

But to truly take advantage of Mozilla's ease and flexibility, you'll want to learn how to browse with tabs and keep your surfing clutter-free.  You'll also want to learn how to manage your security settings to cut down on nuisances such as popups and intrusions like cookies.
