* 2 - malware protection to be protected against unwanted downloads such as viruses and trojan horses
Better browsing, with thousands of improvements
* 3 - Awesome bar, so that you can find places you’ve been before with a couple of keystrokes
* 4 - “Save on exit” so that when you launch Firefox, you’re immediately ready to surf, with last windows and tabs open
* 5 - Remember passwords without a dialog box, so that you decide to save the password after you’ve logged-in
* 6 - New download manager, users can pause a download and resume it later, with a search box to easily retrieve previous downloads
* 7 - Customizable: change the look and feel (themes) and add features (extensions) to Firefox through the built-in add-ons manager. More than 5,000 community-built extensions are available for free!
* 8 - Fastest on complex Web applications, such as GMail so you are more comfortable, even on old machines
* 9 - Uses less memory than any other browser, so you’ll get more mileage out of your computer
* 10 - Moving the Web forward by supporting advanced Web standards so that the Web keeps evolving and benefits users in the long term.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via "natural" ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results for targeted keywords. Usually, the earlier a site is presented in the search results or the higher it "ranks", the more searchers will visit that site. SEO can also target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, and industry-specific vertical search engines.
As a marketing strategy for increasing a site's relevance, SEO considers how search algorithms work and what people search for. SEO efforts may involve a site's coding, presentation, and structure, as well as fixing problems that could prevent search engine indexing programs from fully spidering a site. Other, more noticeable efforts may include adding unique content to a site, ensuring that content is easily indexed by search engine robots, and making the site more appealing to users. Another class of techniques, known as black hat SEO or spamdexing, use methods such as link farms and keyword stuffing that tend to harm search engine user experience. Search engines look for sites that employ these techniques and may remove them from their indices.
The initialism "SEO" can also refer to "search engine optimizers" or "Search Engine Optimizician", terms adopted by an industry of consultants who carry out optimization projects on behalf of clients, and by employees who perform SEO services in-house. Search engine optimizers may offer SEO as a stand-alone service or as a part of a broader marketing campaign. Because effective SEO may require changes to the HTML source code of a site, SEO tactics may be incorporated into web site development and design. The term "search engine friendly" may be used to describe web site designs, menus, content management systems, URLs, and shopping carts that are easy to optimize.
