    I find Firefox to be pretty awesome.

    Agreed but I see with the latest version of FF I suspect that it has a Chrome engine in the back end as some stuff at work won't work any longer. Get the same error messages that I get with Chrome and Opera 28.

    Firefox is still using the Gecko engine.

Note turbo can cause problems with adobe flash and some other situations but can be turned off easily should you strike problems.
    x2 Opera Turbo should help on dialup. And definitely use adblocking of some kind!

    My wife has just informed me that she is looking at purchasing a smart phone. Now the questions have completely changed. I know I have 3g coverage where I am so I assume the smart phone can be used as a hotspot so that I can tether my machine to it and onto the net? What do I need to watch out for. I am a broadband novice except for the odd occassion using free wifi in town (very seldomly). TIA Spooky

    Big mobile data usage and the big bills that come with it is what I'd be watching out for!

    Your wife would be advised to look at all the different phone plans that are available and consider her data usage options. I know that 2 Degrees have some good deals going, as does Skinny Mobile ( devision of the old Telecom). 2 Degrees do roll over data which is very handy when using the web browsing features that come as standard with iPhones and Samsungs, Nexus's and Moto G phones.
    Working on a few different projects.
