Another Great Firefox Product

This Was Brought To My Attention By Reader Jake Wilhite

First I brought you Cache Fixer now I bring you Firefox Preloader. If you use Firefox then you know that the load time is LONG. You click the icon on your desktop and 15 seconds later it finally opens, depending on how many extension you have. Well, Firefox Preloader will cut that time way down. Just like with IE, Firefox will now load as soon as you click it. This is nice. It's not an extension, it's a program that sits on your desktop. It stores Firefox in your computers memory rather than having to go out and look for it. There's two files on the site, the .exe and setup files. You don't need the setup files. After you install it make sure you chose to have it startup with your OS because it has to actually be running to work. It's just easier than having to open it then open FF. 800KB, go download it.

Oh, I forgot to mention one thing in the email:

When you're not going to be online (for dial-up users) just unload the preloader (right-click the icon in the system tray) otherwise it will try to dial out every few minutes. That's the only downside to this program. :-) Just start the program back up before you attempt to get online though, like Chris said.
