Do you find yourself typing the same thing over and over again? Maybe you want to save something you have written so you can post it over and over again in E-mails to all your friends. If you have found yourself in that boat, then Clippings is the Firefox extension you need to install.
Need a quick and painless way to save flash files in Firefox? Well this one doesn’t even need the help of an extention, if you know where to look.
