Search to Tab

Going into the “should have been in there by default” pile of extensions I have grown to enjoy since Firefox 2 came out, we have searchOnTab. This simple and small extension allows you to select that new searches always appear in a new tab via the browser.

It is a pain in the neck to have to open a new tab before I start a new search (if I do not want to have my current tab changed or surfed away from). I just have to believe though that there must be an easier way to do this. Has anybody else been able to find an about:config hack to get it done?

If not – then at least we have this extension to get the job done.

Add Favicons to Del.icio.us

I have just recently given del.icio.us a second shot.

After being kind of disappointed the first time around, I do have to say that I am becoming a little more hooked on the idea now. The whole process is easier, but there was just something missing from the interface.

I needed favicons on these links!

Well, I had a look around and I hunted down a Greasemonkey script that did the job. This script, fav.icio.us2, does one simple job and it does it well. It adds favicons to all the links you see that have been saved to del.icio.us.

Now all I need is more time to save all my favorite links.

Temporary E-mail Address Creator

Need a temporary E-mail address creator? The Tempomail Firefox extension might be right up your ally then. There are a handful of these types of extensions out there, and this one is as handy as the rest.

As an anti-spam solution tempomail allows you to create a temporary email address redirecting each message to your mailbox for a given period of time.

When this period of time expires, you will not receive any spam from the web sites on which you gave your temporary email address. Tempomail is not commercial and your email address will be stored in our logs only for legal archiving.

To create a temporary E-mail address, just right click on a text field and select “tempomail” in the context menu. Then you’ll be asked for your real E-mail address to which messages will be redirected during the time you selected.

Firefox TV Ads

So you want to see which Firefox ads are showing in select markets, right now? Well some of these ads grew in popularity when Firefox was going through the whole Firefox Flicks contest. They are available to watch anytime by visiting this address:

http://www.firefox.com/tv

I am excited to see what type of attention this new advertising avenue brings the folks at Mozilla. More attention equals more users? We can only hope.

Firefox the Super Hero

So what if Firefox was a super hero and not a browser? Would it be able to leap over buildings in a single bound? Kill popups with it’s “lasso of truth”? Well, I might not know what the Firefox super hero might do – but I do have a good idea of what he might look like.

The thing that I love most at Firefox community marketing is viewing the galleries. You can share your photos. To me, that is the fun part. Here are a few of my pictures. The first picture is a Firefox superhero.

The second picture is about Mozilla’s Thunderbird Email at mozilla.com. The last picture is a Firefox ring. I used a 3d figure design software to create most of my pictures. I love art!

Very interesting indeed. What are your thoughts on the Firefox super hero?

RankQuest SEO Toolbar

Search engine optimization (or otherwise known as SEO) has always been a mystery to me. Never had understood it, and I do not think I would ever want to understand it.

Rankquest SEO(Search Engine Optimization) Toolbar provides you quick access to more than 30 intuitive SEO tools. Once you download and install the SEO Toolbar you are only one or two clicks away from carrying out most of your day to day SEO operations.

Netscape’s Digg Tracker

Now I know this must sound like some match made in Web 2.0 hell, but stick with me because it really is a pretty nice tool if you enjoy the popular social news Web site, digg.com.

Netscape’s Digg Tracker extension helps you keep tabs on what stories your Digg friends are digging, submitting, and commenting on. A new toolbar button (shown in the preview image) features the Digg digger.

When there is new activity by your friends (i.e., a new comment or a new story submission), the button will be activated and the digger will be shown with his trusty shovel. Clicking on the activated button will open a list of your friends’ activity in the sidebar, allowing you to easily browse the stories they’ve submitted, commented on, and dugg.

Better PDF Downloads in Firefox

I hate it when a PDF opens up inside of my browser, no matter which one I am using. It wastes my time and I would rather not have Adobe get it’s mitts all over my beautiful Firefox interface. Now you can either poke it back with a stick – which is not the easiest thing to do Online – or you can pick up the PDF Download extension fore Firefox. This extension allows to choose if you want to view a PDF file inside the browser (as PDF or HTML), if you want to view it outside Firefox with your default or custom PDF reader, or if you want to download it!

PimpZilla Theme for Firefox

PimpZillaPimpZilla is probably the best looking ugly theme I have ever seen created for Firefox. They have updated the style yet again – this time for Firefox 2. Oh yes, it is as unique as it has ever been.

Probably the most tacky & overdone piece of GUI design ever. Accept no less: Surf in style and browse like a king!

I would say that is an understatement for sure.
