Bought this book to get some understanding of what Thunderbird was like and whether or not I'd want to use it in my current edition of Firefox? I did try & load it into my OS Lubuntu but it didn't work. Maybe I didn't understand 'how to' do it properly. I just don't know. So now the book is in a bookcase and not used.
Thank you.

There are many things to like about this book. For one, the Garage series is an irreverent style of writing that conveys a lot of information in an entertaining, conversational fashion. In addition to the regular text (that is well illustrated), there are useful sidebars like Tool Kits and Fridges that go slightly off-topic but add some really nice tricks to your computing repertoire. The material on Firefox and Thunderbird is extremely practical without getting bogged down in geeky details that are of little use to the normal user. You could probably figure out a lot of this information on your own if you plugged away long enough, but by taking a little time to read this book, you'll become much more proficient with little effort.

I personally liked the sections on themes and extensions. The extension concept is one of the most powerful features of Firefox, and knowing that you can add functionality to your browser with a simple download will change the way you surf the web. The authors cover a wide array of extensions, so you should find at least one or two immediate "must have" additions that you'll want to investigate. Granted, the world of extensions and add-on software is constantly changing, so what you see in the book will change over time. But still, it will at worst give you an impression of what's available out there.

An excellent book for the new Firefox or Thunderbird user, and one that will give you enough new material to keep you learning for quite awhile. Highly recommended.

Ever since software stopped shipping with printed user manuals, users new to a software package typically look for an introductory text to familiarize themselves with the program if that program is not self-explanatory. For those new users to FireFox and Thunderbird, this title provides just such an introduction. For the most part, this title overviews the programs from the perspective of the user, covering the basic interface and dialogs spawned by toolbar and menu items. Readers should not expect to get any deeper into the applications than what is immediately available within the Options dialogs.

In regards to the FireFox section of this title, showing the information they do in a straight-forward manner would have resulted a text one third as long as what they printed. To flesh this out, the authors have both taken the position that readers are not only new to FireFox, but new to internet browsing in general, and have added both very remedial information as well as a huge amount of filler. For instance, an entire chapter appropriately titled "Websites to Waste Your Time With" does nothing more than provide you eight solid pages of links to web sites that you can - waste your time with. Another chapter appears to be a dedicated advertisement for a blog managing extension download. And as a last example, one chapter has a two page table that covers what each toolbar button does, including a picture, name, and description (such as "New Window: Does the same as the File | New Windows command").

For the Thunderbird section, much of the same fluffed up information as presented in the FireFox section can be found. However, as an email client is a more complicated application than a browser, this section can serve as an excellent Wizard (if you will) for guiding the user thru the often difficult task of account setup and migration, as well as learning how to use the Thunderbird interface instead of your current email program.

Only those that are looking for a beginners guide for FireFox and Thunderbird should consider this title. The book definitely covers the basics of the applications and does so in a way that is easy for the reader to understand and follow. Those that just want the facts and would prefer not to have to sift thru fluff and personal opinion may find this text trying at times, but will get the information they need. Much of the information presented in the book is also presented for free in the on-line help included with both applications, but readers will find value in the extra programs and links presented throughout the chapters.
