This site is very good to learn somethings about Technologys

Thanks for the intro to Firefox. Do you know of anything that deals with the Firefox for Mac? No need to answer. Just thought there might be vid for it also. Some things are different.

Hi Marty, great first video! You've done a grand job - I remember how nervous I was using a mic for my first videos (to be honest - it still gets me 16 months later!).

You come across clearly and you cover a heck of a lot in this video. I'm impressed that you cover how to download Firefox, pros and cons versus IE, tabbed browsing, blocking pop-ups and extending FF through add-ins. Grand stuff!

It is good of you to offer email-support too. Viewers can contact you by leaving a comment here (you'll get a notification) and fingers-crossed people will Vote on your video to show appreciation.

Looking forward to the next installment,


Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
