Social networks and Internet communities are becoming a big part of the life we live today. It seems like every other day there is a new one that pops up. Netmite says that they, “have turned any web page into a virtual community”. They also have a Firefox extension that helps you join in on the fun.
Reading the source code from a Web site can be really confusing if you don’t know what you are looking at. Thankfully for those of us who get mixed up with all the code with no fluff, there is the View Rendered Source Chart extension for Firefox.
It allows you to view the source of a Web site with color coded boxes around all the important parts. It might sound a little silly, but it is a great way to clearly see what the code is about and to learn what it does.

For those folks out there that are looking for another way to flip between browsers, I introduce you to Optool. I found this tool via Chris, and I do have to say for coming in such a small package (112 KB to be exact) it packs a lot of punch. You can switch between Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera by default.
You can plug your own browser into the mix, if it isn’t one of the big three. It is yet another good way to do a little quick browser switching.
Now if you have read any of my Firefox tips and tricks I have been posting the last few months, you have probably seen me talk about IE View before. IE View allows for you to easily open up any Web page from Firefox into Internet Explorer. So what does IE View Lite do?
Want to try to install those extensions on the new Firefox 2.0 “Bon Echo” release? Chances are that out of the box, Bon Echo won’t work with them. If you really want to see what Firefox “Bon Echo” looks like with some of your favorite extensions, try out the Nightly Tester Tools. This extension adds a few extras useful to those that regularly test nightly builds of Firefox.
Are you one of those people who has thirty framed photos on your desk of your family and friends? Well, then you might get a kick out of duimShow. It is a photo slide show Firefox extension that brings viewing random photos right to your browser.
