Digg Coral Cache

Don’t you hate it when you find something interesting on the front page of digg.com and it is already down due to the high traffic demands? So do I. Some people belly-ached over my last digg-related Firefox extension pick. Digg Coral Cache should be a winner with everybody. It turns those links into Coral Cache links or a user-specified cache-server link.

Cooliris – Google Search Previews

Ever wanted to know what was under those search result links in Google? With Cooliris, all you need to do is hover your mouse over the link and you get a preview of where it leads. This Firefox extension also works with Google image searches as well. Think of this as a sneak peek before you click.

Xultris – Tetris Clone

I often find myself surfing from Web site to Web site looking for something to do. If you have found yourself in this place more than once, than give the Xultris Firefox extension a shot. When clicked, it launches you into an adictive game of Tetris. This is the ultimate answer to time killing.

diggbar Toolbar

I have been a big fan of digg.com for a long time, so I was happy to see this extension. The diggbar Toolbar extension for Firefox gives you a new way to navigate through digg’s interface. You can search the entire Web site. You can submit a story with one click. It also adds a few RSS feeds for the top digg stories. If you are a fan of digg, then you must “dig” this extension.

Kaboodle

Have you ever had the urge to ask somebody if they want to Kaboodle? If they didn’t slap you, then they probably know Kaboodle is the easiest way to collect information from anywhere on the web with one click. Well, Kaboodle just got a little more simple with this Firefox extension.

RSS Ticker

Ever wanted an extension that would turn your Firefox installation into a news room interface? Love them or hate them, tickers on some of the big news stations can be pretty helpful. If nothing else, it gives you something to read. Now lets bring that ticker to the browser and toss RSS into the mix. RSS Ticker scrolls your live bookmarks (also known as news feeds/RSS feeds) across your browser, a la a cable-news style ticker.
