Firefox makes a great companion when it comes to e-learning. No matter if you are taking Online classes or just doing a little self teaching, you need a good set of tools to help you in the experience. Over at e-Literate they have listed some very helpful extensions to make your e-learning even better.
Google Bookmarks allows you to create bookmarks you can access anywhere. You can bookmark your favorite Web sites and add labels and notes to them. Your labels and notes are searchable later, and you can access your bookmarks from any computer by signing in. You know what can make it even better? A Firefox Google Bookmarks menu.
Ever felt the need to change Mozilla, Firefox or ThunderBird’s window icon? You can make your browser just a little more different if you head over to the Firefox and Mozilla Icon Packs Web page. There you will find dozens of beautiful icon packs you can install.
Want to take a sneak peak at what the future holds for your favorite browser? The folks over at mozilla links have posted an in-depth review (with pictures!) of the new alpha 2 release of Firefox 2. I really like the new feed handling. What is your favorite new feature?
Some people like for programs to look pretty. For those people (who like Firefox as well) there is CuteMenus. CuteMenus adds an icon next to just about every option and menu inside of Firefox. There is no extra functionality here. This extension just makes Firefox look better.
I always like to see interesting views from both sides of the fence. In my own opinion, I think a lot of folks haven’t switch from Internet Explorer to Firefox because they just don’t see the reasons for it. They both surf the same Web right? Well, over at H3RALD.com they have an interesting article covering an IE lover’s view of the Firefox browser.
Portable Firefox is the popular Mozilla Firefox web browser packaged with a PortableApps Launcher as a portable application, so you can take your bookmarks, extensions and saved passwords with you. What better way to impress your friends and family than to pull out your USB thumb drive and show them the way to use the Web with Firefox. If you get lost along the way, check out the support Web page for some help.
Yes, they are back and more “macish” than ever! The attack is on, and I have a few more Firefox themes that look like they came from the land of Apple computers. Once again, none of these are my number one favorite. However, they are better than the ifox themes.
This tutorial is by far the best one out there today at teaching you how to create a toolbar extension in Firefox. It provides an easy to understand “big picture” of how extensions are developed, the tools required to create an extension, and details on how toolbars are created. Even if you have never done this sort of thing before, I can promise you that you’ll “get it”.
There are way too many Firefox themes out there that have that “mac” look or “mac” name. Now when looking for a Firefox theme that delivers a new look, this isn’t always the best thing to find. Since there are so many “macish” themes out there though, I figured I would point out a few of the better ones.
