Well, I have always heard that there is no such thing as a bad idea. No matter if you think that is the case or not, there are more than a few bad Firefox extensions. Now I do not mean bad as in they will hurt you, I mean bad as in they are pretty lame ideas. So let us celebrate these bad ideas all at once, with the 100 worst Firefox extensions.
It seems like every time I turn around there is another news story about Firefox’s general statistics out there in the world. Here are two stories that have a lot of good information packed into them.
Now don’t get me wrong, a lot of the photo sharing Web sites out there give you a lot of options when it comes to putting content on the Web site. My problem is that I do not really like any of the choices I have so far. So what is a guy to do? I just found the Pickup Photo Uploader the other day, and it has solved my photo uploading problems.
CyberNet does it again by delivering the easiest download links for you to pick up the latest release of Firefox 2. You have to think that by RC3 we have to be pretty close to the final version, right? I would like to think so. I am about tired of downloading a new version every two weeks so I can say I am “on the edge”. Just kidding Mozilla – I still have much love your you and your quick releasing ways.
When Asa makes a list, everybody listens. I have seen this post linked all over the place this morning. Since it does list some quality downloads, I have to point you in his direction as well.
I’ve had this post in draft for about 3 months now and just can’t seem to finish it. I can’t finish it because I honestly haven’t found 10 add-ons that I’ve kept installed for any length of time. Now that Robert’s posted his list, I feel like I should get mine up.
If you’re a Firefox user, Highlight grabs anything on the web you think is news. One click gets your story started, and connects you to our worldwide network of eyewitness reporters. And if you have a blog, Highlight sends you readers.
When it comes to saving things from the Web, it has been a long time since I have seen a good tool that allows you to save images. Everything pretty much does the same old stuff. There is nothing new, exciting or different under the sun. Well, that was the case till I checked out the Save As Image Firefox extension.
This Firefox Fact comes from Lifehacker.com:
Reader Jerry points out that Firefox 2’s suggest-as-you type Google search box is an instant calculator. Simply type your mathematical formula into the search box (Alt-K Cntrl-K to get there quick) and you’ll get your answer even before you hit the equals sign. Awesome.
Well I am happy to say that we are less than 1,000 downloads away from the Firefox Facts eBook hitting the 20,000 downloads mark. Once again I’d like to thank Lockergnome for setting this whole project into motion for me.
I’d also like to thank each and every one of you for downloading it this many times. So tell your neighbor, tell your family, tell your dog to go download the best free eBook on Mozilla Firefox and lets get that download number even higher!
The new Firefox 2 tips are already starting to roll out. I found six of them listed over at ZDNet that I didn’t know about. If I didn’t know about them, you might have not either.
Here are a few simple tips I’ve found helpful to improve the tabbed browsing experience in Firefox 2. These have been tested in the RC2 version on Windows. Ctrl+W closes the tab you are looking at right now.
