Guide Review - Reivew of "Firefox Hacks", by Nigel McFarlane
Again, I don't think that this book is a good fit for anyone looking to merely learn more about using Firefox. This book is a serious Firefox power user Bible. Good resource for anyone who wants to do any development using Firefox, or anyone who wants to get into the nuts and bolts of the Firefox system.
Also, one more thing: Firefox Hacks is written in a numbered style, with hacks from 1 to 100. This means that you don't have to necessarily read each Firefox hack in order to get the most out of the book; you can just fast-forward to what you're most interested in. All the O'Reilly Hacks books are written in this fashion and it's a great way to find what you're really interested in fast.
