Greasemonkey is one of my favorite extensions to ever come out of the Firefox browser, and it seems to be the first thing I install whenever I am setting up a new installation of our favorite browser. To help with some of the details with Greasemonkey, I have found a neat Web site. All you need to do is read, and then click the page to get something new. Very innovative indeed.
You know you want to be rich and famous. Well, I can not help you with the money side of things, but I can point you in the direction of getting your name on TV.
So here’s your chance to be a part of history by joining in on the first test run. Our first TV test will work like this: With help from you all, we selected 4 ads to send to television. The first 72 sponsors to partner with Mozilla by adding $10 dollars to our Flicks ad fund will have their names appear on the air as part of actual ads.
I just hate it when a Web site tries to resize my browser window.
There’s a simple little fix that prevent webpages from resizing your Firefox browser that I put in every time. There’s nothing I hate more than a website that resizes my whole browser to the size of a 40×40 ad, forcing me to expand it back to my regular 1024×768 size.
I figured I would try something a little new and different this week. Since top five or top ten lists seem to be so popular when it comes to Firefox, here are your top 5 most popular posts of the week.
Have a favorite that I might have missed? Leave a comment and let me know about it.
Here is a nice comparison between Firefox 2 and Internet Explorer’s RSS functions.
In general, we felt that RSS reader was a very personal choice to be made by the user, and that we did not want to compete with existing RSS readers that exist, which are very competent in a variety of ways. Rather, we wanted to allow users to easily subscribe to feeds using their favorite reader.
The UI presented is not intended to be one for consuming the content, but rather previewing the content before subscription (since many feeds have non-descriptive titles). I think this is where the confusion arises, because the presentation is similar to Safari’s and IEs and so people may expect reading functionality.
Personally I kind of like what Microsoft is doing more right now – but I have a feeling that by the time Firefox 3 rolls around, they should be beating them hand over fist.
Remember the Firefox crop circles that got a lot of attention a few weeks back? Well it looks like it is now turning up on Google Earth. So was this really a Firefox project or are the aliens trying to tell us which browser we should really use? You tell me.
Now all this stock talk just makes my head hurt. I don’t understand it, and I am not sure if I want to understand it. I understand though that some of you might – and this is the reason I hunted down and found the Stock Charts Firefox Extension.
We’ve just put the finishing touches on an extension for the Firefox web browser. It lets you select one or more ticker symbols on a web page and open new tabs for them all in stocktickr, stockcharts.com, Yahoo! Finance, or Big Charts – all in one fell swoop without any typing. Is your favorite stock web site not on the list? That’s ok because you can easily add it to the list.
Ever felt the need to get rid of Google’s boring white background? Well I have run across three really neat styles that somebody has created for Google via the Stylish Firefox extension. To use these, you will have to have Stylish installed.
I think I may have found one of my new favorite extensions for Firefox. I use and I love the Google Reader. It handles all my RSS feeds well, and thanks to it I never miss a beat. This firefox extension shows you how many unread items you have in your Google Reader account.
If you use the Google Reader a lot, this is a priceless pleasure to have in your browser.
We all like to stay clear of things that might be bad for us Online. McAfee’s SiteAdvisor has done a great job in filtering the Web and letting us know what is safe and what might not be so safe. Is there an alternative out there though? Yes there is, and the name of it is WOT.
