The Offline Page Validator is a neat tool for any Web designer to carry around in his or her tool belt. This extension submits the current open page to the W3C validation tool, even if the page is on a non-public server, a local file, or requires a login.
He is a robot the comes from the future, no wait. That is the Terminator, not the Translator. The Translator Firefox extension comes from the present day and time to help you figure out what words in foreign languages really mean.
Want to have your say in the planning of the Firefox 2006 Party? If so, go check out this thread over at spreadfirefox.com:
We’re still working hard to get the Party Tool up. We’re also putting together Firefox 2 Party Packs — a small kit including t-shirts, stickers, and other Firefox swag that we’ll make available to party-goers. (You all are planning to host or attend a Firefox 2 party, right?!)
This extension for Firefox is pretty straight forward. It gives you the ability to have a little calculator in your sidebar for all those times you need to crunch some numbers on the Web. Sure, I haven’t ever had to do that either – but it is nice to know it is there.
When it comes to shopping Online, there are plenty of places for you to choose from. Which one has the best deals though? At which Online store are you going to find the cheapest price? This is an age old question that will be answered by the Firefox extension, Pronto.
NewsFox is an RSS reader for folks who like Thunderbird’s built in RSS reader, but they don’t use that E-mail client. Think of it as taking the RSS guts out of Thunderbird and putting it instead into Firefox. Now for the most part, I don’t like many of these “built into Firefox” feed readers. On the other hand, NewsFox does show promise.
Yeah, I thought frames on Web sites went out of style a few years back as well. This Firefox extension ads the ability to split your current “one Web page view” into two! Through the magical power of frames, this could be really handy to keep track of two Web pages at once.
Backup Firefox, Thunderbird, and Gaim profiles with the click of a button. Then restore them just as easily. Backzilla. Net is perfect for backing up all these profiles. No need to install. Once the profiles are backed up, you can transfer the folder to a new computer and use the restore feature to apply your profile to the new computer. If, for some reason, the restore fails, there is an undo feature. Version 2.1 has Backzilla.
Picking Firefox’s best feature is like asking what is your favorite part of a vanilla ice cream scoop. It is all good in my opinion. One person at least thinks that Firefox’s “Quick Search” feature beats them all.
Before I began using Firefox, I used a IE mod called Avant Browser. Avant was fantastic at the time, it added Tabbed browsing, themes, domain aliases and a little thing called quick searching. If if you are all familiar with Firefox, you are probably familiar with Quick Searching. In my opinion, it eliminates the Search box, which is by default, turned on, in Firefox.
When I first heard about LinkWad, I thought it sounded a little gross. I don’t want my links in “wads”. I want my links in organized lists and helpful clusters that help me find what I need. Even though the name is a little disgusting, I learned that with Firefox it does provide you with better organization.
