    New to Mac, just bough Mac Pro 17". First I installed Firefox. In PC I hit control + T and I open up a new tab or I right click on a link and I can choose to open it in a new tab or window. How do I do this with Mac.

    Also the Mac came with a two prong plug and a three prong. Whats the difference.

    Most shortcuts you use at Windows with Control, you use Command on a Mac instead.
    Examples:
    Control-T --> Command-T -- Open new tab.
    Control-C --> Command-C -- Copy.
    Control-V --> Command-V -- Paste.
    etc...

    Command key is this at your keyboard, just right between the ALT/Option and spacebar: ⌘

    Also, Google says this about your plugs:

    I can't relate to it since I have an European charger. It's different.

    Use cmd, not ctrl. Remember that clicking the red X doesn't close the application, only the window. To properly quit, hit cmd-q.

    The two prong isn't grounded and is shorter. The 3 prong is grounded and longer. That's it.

    I came from Windows so I was overjoyed when I discovered command+tab was like alt+tab. Took me 6weeks of owning a MBP to discover it.
