Scuttle is another social bookmark and link sharing Web site, such as digg.com and del.icio.us. From what I have seen of Scuttle, they aren’t reinventing the round ball in that department of Web 2.0. One thing they have done right is put out a Firefox extension that is worth picking up if you are a fan of the services Scuttle provides.
Want to make a little cash and get folks to switch from Internet Explorer? That is the idea behind the Web site, ExplorerDestroyer.com. Using Google AdSense referral system and little scripting on the Web site, you can “persuade” your visitors to “upgrade” to Firefox. Want more information behind the project? Read what the folks at PC Magazine had to say about this rebel group of Firefox users.
The address bar is dead. What, did you miss the invitation to the funeral? It was a nice service thrown by the folks at RubNub.org. What killed the address bar? The folks at RubNub.org did. Now how is that for a murder mystery?
Angela Lansbury, eat your heart out.
There has to be at least a million reasons to use Firefox, right? That is the idea behind the Web site, The Million Reasons. Here are a few good ones:
#120: Time is money. Firefox is super fast – like a jolt of lighting compared to Safari and Explorer – both painfully slowwwwwww.
#49: Updated Frequently
#206: it makes ramen (I didn’t know about this one!)
Have a friend or family member that isn’t sure if they want to switch? Send them to read this list.
Ever wanted to create a developer’s profile in Firefox, but you didn’t want to get rid of your current profile setup? Over at tech.ablegray.com they have a five step solution to your problem. After the five easy steps, you should be able to access your regular profile for your stuff and your developer profile for any development needs you might have.
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.
