Firefox 2 is coming closer and looking better every day. The “spell-as-you-type functionality for text fields” looks pretty interesting. It might keep me from typing words into the Google search box every time I’m not sure how to spell something. The “ability to manage the search plugins” is my other favorite new feature to look forward to. Right now there isn’t a pretty interface over this, and I really think there should be one.
Here are a few more related links about the future of Firefox:
Have you used Gada.be yet? It is one of the best search engines out there today, as far as metasearch services go these days. You can also add Gada.be’s functionality right into your Firefox searchbar. I can almost guarantee you that once you try it, you will be looking for reasons to use it again.
Want a theme that is light, small and easy on the eyes? Breeze is the Firefox theme for you then. It leaves less room for pretty icons, and more room for browsing the Web. I’ve been using it for a while, and I have to say it is one of the better minimalistic themes out there today. [View Screenshots]
Ever been to a Web site where you wanted more information, but didn’t want to give up your personal E-mail account? Creating a disposable E-mail address for those Web sites is a good way to protect the E-mail accounts you like the most.
Without disposable E-mail accounts, you are bound to run into endless amounts of spam and garbage. Minus the cape and funny tights, here comes the Create Disposable E-Mail Address Firefox extension.
It has been many moons since the last time I took a visit to a chat room. I do have fond memories of them though. Twelve year olds typing expletives they just learned aside, many folks are still chatting away in these social conversations. Now you can join in on the fun by getting ChatZilla. Make sure you read the FAQ first, then jump right into your favorite chat room with ease.
Feeling like you want a little more Bugs Bunny in your browser this morning? The Doodle Plastik Firefox theme gives you a real “cartoon-like” look and feeling. It is one of the more playful themes out there as well.
It is hard to find a good theme that isn’t an Apple ripoff, so pick this one up today.
Ever ran across some text on a Web page that you wanted to quickly translate? Now it can be as easy as highlighting the text in question, and using gTranslate. This Firefox extension makes reading another language as easy as pie.
The extension uses the Google translation services to translate the text. Pick it up, and find out what the French have really been saying about us all this time.
