Sure, you have seen how to create a search plugin before, but have you ever been promised a two minute or less learning curve? The folks over at Digital Inspiration have produced a very handy tutorial giving you everything you need to know about creating a search plugin.
We have seen thumbnails for tabs before, that is not exactly new. The Firefox Showcase extension does a little more than just adding thumbnails though. It gives you several ways to check out those preview pictures and does so with style and class.
It might seem like more trouble than it is worth, but this tutorial will show you how to get Mozilla Firefox installed and running in your RAM rather than from your hard drive. After reading through the step by step process, it seems simple enough. I guess I’m not sure how much of an advantage you are really going to see though.
FoxyTunes is one of those old reliable extensions that just keeps getting better with age. Version 2.0 is now out, and I have to say it is better than ever. If you have used FoxyTunes in the past and passed, I encourage you to give it a second look. Listen to your favorite tunes without leaving your browser!
There is no secret about it, there are a lot of different FTP clients out there on the market. Which one is the best? That is almost like asking somebody what is their favorite flavor of ice cream. Everybody has a favorite for different reasons. Well I have another flavor to toss into the mix, and I promise it is anything but vanilla.
It might be a ‘bit of a work around, but there is a way you can get a secure login for Google’s Calendar application. If you use Google Calendar, I would suggest you give this a shot for more security.
In fact, even if you change your Google Calendar bookmark URL to https, you’ll often be redirected to a plain old http connection. boo, Google! That’s why I’ve found Mark Pilgrim’s GMail Secure Greasemonkey script invaluable. It’s built to force a secure connection for GMail, but the script itself is so generic that it works for other sites.
Are you keeping tabs on a Web site that you are expecting to change? The ReloadEvery Firefox extension gives you the ability to set a time interval for reloading a Web site. Now you can stalk the Web site of your choice automatically. Give the reload button a rest and try this extension out!
Working Online without distractions might sound easier that it is. I am about to start a new job next week, and I know I am probably going to be a little distracted with other things going on. So what is the solution? Create a new profile in Firefox that is only used for work.
What you can do is create a separate profile just for work. Here is the list of some advantages:
+ No “play” bookmarks
+ No “play” usernames/passwords (I let Firefox remember mine)
+ Install only those extensions needed for work (Firefox works faster)
It is never too early to start celebrating Halloween. Heck, most of the Wal-marts out there already probably have Christmas stuff out by now. How can you bring a little wicked Halloween cheer to your browser?
Navigating through our browser should be a customizable and enjoyable process. The last time I tried to use the Opera browser, I got lost in less than five minutes. Thankfully for Mozilla fans, Firefox gives you more room to customize than anybody else out there. One example of this at work is the Sidebar Icons extension.
