About abouts


Shh... don't tell anyone, but you can use "about:" prefix in "URLs" to receive information which otherwise would have taken much longer to get to or simply would not have been available.

For example, to get information (probably more information than you need) about your browser's cache:

  • Press CTRL+L (or go to "Location" input box)
  • Type "about:cache" without the quotes
  • Press ENTER
You can retrieve information about your plug-ins by replacing "about:cache" with "about:plugins" in the above example.

Here are some other "about:" commands you can use in Netscape:

    authors
    blank
    cache
    document
    editfilenew
    global
    hype
    image-cache
    jwz
    license
    memory-cache
    mozilla
    plugins
    security?banner-insecure
    security?banner-mixed
    security?banner-payment
Oh, by the way, don't forget to checkout "about:mozilla"
