- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Nick Brazzi. Welcome to Up and Running with the Firefox Browser. Firefox is a web browser, an application that you can use to surf the web. We'll start by making sure you're comfortable with the basics of browsing the web. Then, we'll look at some of the common essential features in Firefox, including downloading files, browsing the web with tabs, and synchronizing bookmarks and other data, between multiple computers. We'll talk about creating and managing bookmarks so you can save web pages and go back to them later.
Then we'll talk about privacy. There are lots of pieces of information that Firefox saves, like your browser history, saved passwords and cookies. Things that you might want to monitor for privacy reasons. I'll get you familiar with how to work with all of these pieces of saved data and how to clear them. We'll finish up by taking a look at the version of Firefox that runs on Android phones and tablets. Many features work the same on the mobile version of Firefox, but we'll take a good look and see what works differently.
If you use Firefox and you're not sure how everything works, or if you just have some questions about the settings, I think this course will be very helpful for you. So please join me for Up and Running with the Firefox browser.
