It seemed like such a small difference. So harmless. . . Tabitha Moon possesses an astonishing, though inhuman, feature that sets her far apart from everyone else. Yet, whilst truly remarkable to look upon, she feels that her appearance is also the wellspring of her loneliness; a burden that only ever seems to attract stares, cruel words, intimidation and even harm... So Tabitha hides and dreams of release from her torment, completely unaware that she has an ancient ancestry founded far from the unhappy place she grudgingly calls "home." Nor is she aware that the mysterious lineage is not only responsible for how she looks but also for an incredibly powerful gift she has unknowingly inherited from them. Then, one night, without warning, everything changes... Ignited by a particularly violent and cowardly attack upon her, Tabitha's latent, arcane power erupts into life from deep within - and with it a bizarre, yet wondrous, entity also awakens...

Mozilla Firefox fait partie d'une nouvelle génération de navigateurs. C'est un logiciel libre et gratuit, un produit communautaire, conçu pour être parfaitement adapté à la réalité actuelle du Web. Disponible en plusieurs langues et sous différents systèmes d'exploitation, Firefox fournit l'essentiel pour consulter efficacement les pages Web, rechercher des informations sur Internet et télécharger des documents. Firefox est entièrement personnalisable en modifiant les barres d'outils, les thèmes et les profils individuels, mais aussi en ajoutant des extensions. Il offre de plus, des fonctionnalités intéressantes en matière de sécurité (aucun logiciel ne peut s'installer automatiquement en arrière-plan, par exemple). Ce livre présente de façon claire et détaillée l'ensemble des fonctions proposées par les versions 1.0.x de Firefox sous Windows et sous Linux : l'installation, la navigation, l'utilisation des onglets qui permettent d'ouvrir plusieurs pages dans une même fenêtre, les moteurs de recherche intégrés, les marque-pages dynamiques, le contrôle des popups et des cookies, la personnalisation de l'interface, le gestionnaire de téléchargements, l'installation dirigée des plugins, les outils de gestion des extensions et des thèmes ainsi que les procédures de mise à jour du navigateur Firefox.
La collection " Repère " couvre les principaux logiciels bureautiques ; elle a été conçue pour vous donner des explications claires, très détaillées, à l'aide de termes simples et précis sur les fonctions du logiciel... Chaque commande est illustrée par un écran d'exemple selon la règle "un titre - un écran" ; la mise en page, volontairement très visuelle (texte à gauche et illustrations à droite) convient particulièrement bien aux débutants. Les ouvrages sont organisés en chapitres correspondant à un thème (la mise en forme, le texte, les images...) et se terminent par la liste des raccourcis-clavier. Pour certains logiciels (comme Word ou Excel), deux ouvrages sont proposés : le premier décrit les fonctions à connaître pour démarrer avec le logiciel, le second permet de découvrir les fonctions plus évoluées. Ce guide pratique détaille les fonctionnalités de cet "autre navigateur". Firefox 2 ; il a été conçu pour vous présenter de façon claire et détaillée les fonctions qu'il faut connaître pour surfer sur le Web, effectuer des recherches variées, gérer vos marque-pages et flux RSS.

Vous choisirez de conserver ou non l'historique de navigation, le texte des formulaires et les mots de passe. Vous découvrirez aussi ce que sont les cookies et les outils à votre disposition pour contrôler l'accès à certains sites, vous protéger du phishing et des fenêtres non désirées (pop-up). Et vous pourrez personnaliser le navigateur en lui ajoutant des modules complémentaires. Chaque commande est illustrée par un ou plusieurs écrans. Vous trouverez en annexe un glossaire et une liste d'adresses Web utiles.
