Display Installed Extensions Online

InfoLister is an extension for Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird and Nvu that gathers various information (such as themes, extensions and plugins) about Firefox/Thunderbird and saves it to a file. Now where the interesting part comes in, is the ability to upload that list as an XML file so you can share what extensions you are using with your friends Online.

Thanks goes to Douglas for this very interesting tip. Here is how you can find out a little more about using the output of InfoLister to fit your needs:

New Google Toolbar

Do you want to “take the power of Google” with you? Google’s Firefox toolbar now comes with a some neat new features. These features include: an enhanced search box, feed subscription management, set Gmail as your default E-mail client, and Google Safe Browsing. It has been a while since I ran the Google toolbar, but this one might be worth trying out.

Stylish

Stylish is to CSS what Greasemonkey is to JavaScript. Stylish allows you to easily manage user styles for the application UI, all websites, or only certain websites. Stylish is better than using userChrome.css/userContent.css because styles are applied immediately instead of requiring a restart.

View Rendered Source Chart

Reading the source code from a Web site can be really confusing if you don’t know what you are looking at. Thankfully for those of us who get mixed up with all the code with no fluff, there is the View Rendered Source Chart extension for Firefox.

It allows you to view the source of a Web site with color coded boxes around all the important parts. It might sound a little silly, but it is a great way to clearly see what the code is about and to learn what it does.

Firefox is at 10% Market Share

According to this Market Share Web site, Firefox is now enjoying 10% of the browser market. That puts Internet Explorer at 85% and everybody else in that other 5%. Firefox is gaining steam and I don’t know what could happen to make them fall off the track. Want to read some more debate on the topic? Check out the digg.com comments to this news.

Kaboodle

Have you ever had the urge to ask somebody if they want to Kaboodle? If they didn’t slap you, then they probably know Kaboodle is the easiest way to collect information from anywhere on the web with one click. Well, Kaboodle just got a little more simple with this Firefox extension.

Reduce Firefox Memory Usage

At CyberNet Technology News, they have a nice article about Firefox’s memory usage and what extensions you can get rid of to lighten the memory load. Some of the memory leakers are: IE Tab, Session Saver, and Forecast Fox.

Memory leaks will slow down Firefox’s performance. However, if you don’t see a problem and you like browsing the way you are browsing, just keep doing what your doing. The sky isn’t falling just yet, but it is good to have this information handy.

Duplicating your Firefox Profile

When you reformat your computer or getting a new one, you always have to go through the process of getting Firefox back to the way you like it. Did you know, you could save yourself a lot of trouble if you would just make a copy of your Firefox profile? After making a copy, you can plug it into the new Firefox install and get back to browsing.

This morning, Mark submitted a link that would help you do just that. ForeverGeek.com has a nice tutorial on how to duplicate your existing Firefox profile. This is a nice way to make a backup of your profile as well, just incase things on your PC go bad.
