Get the Most Out of StumbledUpon

The folks over at Pronet Advertising have posted a wonderful guide to using my favorite Firefox extension, StumbledUpon.

That makes it a valuable traffic source, so lets see how StumbleUpon works and how you can use it to get traffic to your website.

Using Firefox 2 with CMS

Firefox 2 is coming along really nicely. I just downloaded the RC1 yesterday, and things are looking about as good as they can get. I could see how this newest version would help people get things done a lot faster than in the past as well. Need a good example of this in action? I found one over at CMSReport.com.

Over the past few months I found that Firefox 2 is a browser that has change my browsing style and it will likely do the same for you.

Mozilla Firefox 2 RC1 Released

Well it is finally out, up and running. What is the big deal about release candidate one of Firefox 2? Well, this will be the next nearest thing to the official Firefox 2 browser that we will get. I don’t suspect that many more things will be changed under the hood at this point. There will be some tweaking here and there, but this is pretty much the same browser you will get when Firefox 2 becomes the norm.

Once again, CyberNet News is all over this with multiple download links. He even has a portable version up, so you don’t have to mess with your current Firefox setup on your computer.

Firefox Showcase

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.

CrossFTP

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.

Secure Google Calendar

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.
