How to Handle your Browser

Jan 25, 2008 by     2 Comments    Posted under: Firefox

Update : This post is for Firefox User

Do you want to know some interesting facts about your browser ( protocol Links ) ? Well I think mozillaZine could help you with regards to this things. You can see their post here,

And for ease of reading I have copied their post below :

There are a few special URLs, which begin with about:, that you can type into the Location Bar.

  • about: — The same page as “Help -> About”.
  • about:about — Lists all these about: URLs (Mozilla Suite only).
  • about:blank — A blank page. Useful for setting as your homepage.
  • about:bloat — Displays BloatView output (disabled in release builds).
    • about:bloat?new
    • about:bloat?clear
  • about:buildconfig — Reveals details about your Mozilla build options.
  • about:cache — Displays cache statistics and disk cache directory location.
    • about:cache?device=memory — Lists memory cache entries.
    • about:cache?device=disk — Lists disk cache entries.
  • about:cache-entry — Shows information about a cache entry. Used in about:cache links. Requires parameters.
  • about:config — GUI for modifying user preferences (prefs.js).
  • about:credits — The list of contributors to the Mozilla projects.
  • about:logo — Displays the Mozilla logo (Mozilla Suite only).
  • about:kitchensink — Was never included in Mozilla for the reasons listed in Bug 122411 (“Mozilla does not have a kitchen sink”). You can install an extension that adds it though 🙂
  • about:license — shows the Mozilla Public License and the Netscape Public License for the piece of software. ( Only in products based on Gecko 1.8 )
  • about:mozilla — The famous Book of Mozilla.
  • about:plugins — Lists all your plugins as well as other useful information.

Today I am using “about:blank” as my default page. It is cool to see, only white screen when I open my browser. 🙂
