Love or Hate the Beta 2 Theme?

Firefox 2 - Beta 2I looks like a lot of people either love or love to hate the new Firefox 2 Beta 2 theme. I wouldn’t say that I hate it, but I think I like the older one better. Well, if you have something to say about it, Asa Dotzler wants to hear from you.

I’m reading a wide variety of opinions on the latest iteration of the Firefox theme. Some people really like it; others, not so much. I haven’t had the time to look for opinions outside of the regular watering holes, but so far it looks like the nos are outnumbering the yeas. What’s your take on the beta 2 theme?

MileWideBack

I love to see Firefox extensions that really add neat and cool features that I might have not thought of before. The MileWideBack extension makes the left side of your Firefox window a really big “go back” button. All you need to do is click on the left border of the window, and you are back to where you were before.

Preview Your Links

I like getting a hint on what I might be seeing when I click that next link. Sure, there are a couple of different thumbnail preview tools out there, but the Thumbnail Link Preview Browser Tool might be my favorite.

Daily when you are surfing the web, you find lot of links on your favorite search engines and web directories. Then you try some of these links by reading the title or description about the link. Here comes the role of Link Preview to help you find what you want in faster and cooler way.

This helpful tool is available as both a bookmarklet and a Greasemonkey script. To pick up either one of those, make sure you check out Thumbnail Link Preview’s Web site.

BlockSite

You should have the power to block any Web sites you want to block, right? The Internet browser is your window into the Online world. It should be your right to filter out what content you do not wish to see. Firefox may not come built in with too many content blocking features, but the BlockSite extension more than makes up for that.

Quick Add to Google Calendar

Are you searching for a way to quickly add appointments to your Google Calendar? Well if you are using Firefox then you are in luck. If you are using one of those other browsers, then you are beyond saving.

The extension is very simple. It adds a new shortcut (CTRL + ; [semi-colon]) to your browser window that launches a simple text dialog. In the text box you can enter whatever you would in the Google Calendar Quick Add feature and if you hit ENTER it will create the event for you in your default calendar. Remember, you must be logged in for it to work, if not, I’ll remind you anyways. The icing on the cake, is that it will find any Google Calendar window that’s opened and reload it for you so you can see your new appointment.

The Google Calendar Quick Add Firefox Extension is the thing you need to pick up to get the job done.
