Google enhances search for Firefox users -ZDNet:
Google has added a new feature to its search engine that allows Firefox users to obtain search results more quickly. The search engine's preloaded link feature is supported by Mozilla browsers, including Firefox, but because Microsoft's Internet Explorer and other browsers do not provide such functionality, they will not be able to use the feature.

When you do a search on these browsers, we instruct them to download your top search result in advance, so if you click on it, you'll get to that page even more quickly.

There are some potential issues, however. "You'll run into trouble if the first match is a porno site and your company's proxy logs it-you get all cookies of the first match without seeing the page",one Firefox user said. Another user adds,people may unknowingly download illegal content.
