Most “What You See Is What You Get” or WYSIWYG editors aren’t worth much. Sure there are a few that break that rule, but for the most part I have always said you are better off ignoring them. What if you could edit other people’s Web sites in this way? As long as it is for your own private use, I don’t see a problem with that. That is what the Mimulus Firefox extension brings to the dance.
Here is a neat Greasemonkey script that I ran across the other day.
The Digital Inspiration blog shows how to construct a URL that will play any MP3 file with Google’s player, which is nice, but it seems like a lot of work. So I’ve modified the auto inline MP3 player greasemonkey script to embed the Google Player in case you prefer the look and feel of Google’s player to the Musicplayer.
I looks like a lot of people either love or love to hate the new Firefox 2 Beta 2 theme. I wouldn’t say that I hate it, but I think I like the older one better. Well, if you have something to say about it, Asa Dotzler wants to hear from you.
I’m reading a wide variety of opinions on the latest iteration of the Firefox theme. Some people really like it; others, not so much. I haven’t had the time to look for opinions outside of the regular watering holes, but so far it looks like the nos are outnumbering the yeas. What’s your take on the beta 2 theme?
I love to see Firefox extensions that really add neat and cool features that I might have not thought of before. The MileWideBack extension makes the left side of your Firefox window a really big “go back” button. All you need to do is click on the left border of the window, and you are back to where you were before.
I like getting a hint on what I might be seeing when I click that next link. Sure, there are a couple of different thumbnail preview tools out there, but the Thumbnail Link Preview Browser Tool might be my favorite.
Daily when you are surfing the web, you find lot of links on your favorite search engines and web directories. Then you try some of these links by reading the title or description about the link. Here comes the role of Link Preview to help you find what you want in faster and cooler way.
This helpful tool is available as both a bookmarklet and a Greasemonkey script. To pick up either one of those, make sure you check out Thumbnail Link Preview’s Web site.
When it comes to elegant looking themes, none can beat the Glowy series. Think I am full of it? Just check out the screenshots and be amazed by the royalty of it all. After installing them, I feel like the rest of my computer’s applications are just servants to the king.
You should have the power to block any Web sites you want to block, right? The Internet browser is your window into the Online world. It should be your right to filter out what content you do not wish to see. Firefox may not come built in with too many content blocking features, but the BlockSite extension more than makes up for that.
Here is something you don’t get to do everyday. The folks at Mozilla are asking for you to name their mascot that will be used in Japan. Will you name him Frank? Maria? Sparky? The choice is up to you. He is pretty darn cute though, I must say.
Everybody loves Gmail, but some of us love it too much. Do you ever find youself switching between Gamil logins just to get all your E-mail checked? Moving the mouse around, logging in, logging out – it is all a lot of work. Why do all that work though, when there is an extension that will do all of that for you? Gmail Manager has come to your rescue!
You have not earned your Firefox “street credit” if you haven’t ever messed with your userChrome.css file. Come on, all the cool kids are doing it.
Edits to your Firefox profile’s userChrome.css file can make all sorts of fun and useful changes to the fox’s chrome, menus, dialogs and toolbars.
