You are on your favorite set of forums on the Web and everybody is sharing their favorite Firefox extensions. Being the Firefox lover you are, you want to join in on the fun. How can you share your full list of extension goodness though without a lot of typing? You need the Extension List Dumper to do all the heavy lifting for you.
SeoQuake is a very neat extension available for Firefox that is a search engine optimizer’s best friend. It has been developed for the look-see of site’s parameters in search results of Google, Yahoo, MSN, Yandex, Rambler search engines and any other pages as well.
I like being organized and having multiple things available to me at a moment’s notice. When you also add into the equation that I do a lot of tech support, then there is only one extension I should be looking at. The Text Complete Firefox extension makes quick and easy work out of saving text to use at a later time and date.
The folks over at CyberNet News have posted a very detailed look at where microsummaries are going in the new Firefox 3 and what they are exactly. I have had a few people E-mail me and they all seem to be confused by it. Here is the best definition you can find on the Internet.
By default, Firefox’s toolbar layout is a little bulky. Time to take it to the gym and get it turned into a sleek mean browsing machine!
Everyone loves Firefox, it’s the browser of browsers. I need not explain why, one would think the reasons for switching were obvious. However, the default interface for it is rather, lets say, bulky. I’m a minimalistic person; I like everything on my computer to be organized and simple. My desktop consists of three icons, my music is located in one folder. In fact, you could say my whole hard drive is like a carefully sorted filing cabinet. It’s not OCD, I hope, I just like it that way.
We all want a way to get more information about the Web sites we know and love, right? Even if you don’t run one yourself, it is always nice to go out and find out something you did not know. That is where the About This Site Firefox extension comes in. It will hand you a plethora of details all in one context menu.
If you use either the Greasemonkey or Stylish Firefox extensions, I have the perfect extension for you when it comes to getting a little more browsing room while using Google Reader.
Just load this bad boy up via either one of those extensions and you should be good to go.
So where does it save you the room? Well for the most part it looks like it just cuts off the Google stuff from the top and gives you the “full view” of the reader. This is nice if you just hate seeing that Google Reader logo at the top every time you login.
It looks like the folks at Mozilla are taking a bite out of
crime phishing. Personally I don’t care too much for phish. I am a bigger fan of phicken.
The Washington Post announced today the availability of a new report by consulting firm SmartWare on Firefox 2 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 anti-phishing features comparison. The bottom line: “Firefox 2 Phishing Protection is more effective than the Microsoft Phishing Filter in Internet Explorer 7.” Numbers are shown below and based on 1040 tested known phishing web sites.
Keeping your Firefox bookmarks in sync across multiple machines is a little difficult. Sure there are a lot of extensions that promise to give you what you need, but some of them fall short in the features.
One of the latest ones that has caught my eye is Bookmark Sync and Sort.
Not too long ago, I shared the fact that my bookmark toolbar menu doesn’t have any text on the bookmarks I have listed there. Text takes up too much room, and why is it needed when you have a favicon for the Web site? The only problem to that is that not every Web site has a favicon to pick. That is where Favicon Picker 2 comes into the picture.
