Twitter has worked together with Mozilla to create the official Twitter Address Bar Search add-on for Firefox. Today, Twitter is announcing the add-on which enables users to have a better tool for searching Twitter.
Upon installation of the Twitter Address Bar Search add-on, you can start searching Twitter for #hashtags and @usernames right on the Firefox Address Bar aka Firefox Awesome Bar. Searching will take you straight to the search results page on Twitter.
It looks like the hard work of the Firefox community is starting to pay off as the number of the Firefox web browser users have increased considerably in a year’s time. It’s not much of a good news to Microsoft since their web browser, the Internet Explorer, has suffered a declined in usage.
I still see a lot of room for improving the percentages here. For one thing, I see a lot of people still using Internet Explorer version 6.0. This IE version is just way too big a problem with all the holes it has (and all the problems it brings to web site developers). If these people would just start using the Mozilla Firefox web browser instead, I think we can see more substantial increases in the Firefox’s market share. (statistics provided by NetApplications.)
If you are still an Internet Explorer v6 or earlier user, switch to the Mozilla’s Firefox web browser. It a lot more secure than what you’re using right now!
