Content Handling

Posted: Wednesday, July 25, 2007 by El Guru in Firefox, Fx 3.0

The other day sim asked on the Weekly Update 2007-07-23 post “what’s content handling”.  This was in reference to the report that “content-handling is not going to make Fx3”. So what is content-handling? It is a neat feature that would let you setup Firefox on what to do when it came across certain types of content. Technically, this feature already exists if you go under Tools, Options.., Content tab and then under File Types click Manage…

However with Firefox 3, it was more of a user-interface (UI) type change. The blog article, Fx 3 User Interface (UI) Redo shows an example of what the new UI would have looked like. So Firefox 3 will still have content-handling just it will be handle by the old styled dialog boxes.
