We all want a quicker, better and faster way of searching for things. Thankfully there is more than one way to becoming a searching master from within Firefox. Now you have the default search box in the upper right corner, but sometimes that just does not do the job. What if you want to search a term you see on a Web site? That is where SearchWith comes into play.
Ever find yourself wondering what the keyboard shortcut in Firefox is for opening a new tab? What about the keyboard command to jump to the search box? If you (like myself) have found yourself in this situation, you might need to study the Mozilla Firefox Cheat Sheet. This is a great list of keyboard commands and shortcuts to make any novice look like an experienced Firefox user.
The folks over at Small Business Pipeline have put together a nice extension list for small businesses.
Enter Networking Pipeline’s crack researcher (that is, yours truly). He braved the toughest of the Web, scoured extension sites, and crawled through the underbelly of the Internet to find for you the absolute coolest collaboration and communication Firefox extensions around.
Sure you can hit the F11 key to get Firefox to go to full screen mode. For some folks, it might be easier to just hit a toolbar button. With the Full Screen Firefox extension, you get a ‘Full Screen’ toolbar button and context menu command. No keyboard keys to memorize, just one button right in your face letting you know how to do it and what to hit.
None of my Firefox extensions really have a “witty but overweening manner” except for one. Uppity helps folks out by making navigation of a Web site just a little easier. It allows you to navigate up one level (directory). It will remove an in-page anchor, the query string, the file, and the last directory in that order, whichever is first found.
Sure, the Firefox Extension Backup Extension might be a long name. I am sure it didn’t take a market team any time at all to come up with that one. To make things simple though, let us just call it FEBE.
FEBE is another great backup solution for Firefox. FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up – It will actually rebuild your extensions individually into installable .xpi files. Now you can easily synchronize your office and home browsers.
Every single day there is a new resource out there that makes searching better. This place says it is better than that one. That one says it is better than this one. How can you make a simple and easy job out of searching them all? You blast them away with termBlaster. As far as searching in Firefox goes, this is the number one way to go.
It has been a while since a Firefox theme shot out at me with some originality. iPox is a Mozilla Firefox theme loosely based off an iPod and Apple GUI. Now I know what you are going to say, “Yeah, so is every other theme that comes out for Firefox!” but I promise, you should give this one a shot. This theme doesn’t slap you in the face with the common Apple look. Instead it really does something different, as far as Apple inspired themes go.
