When I first heard about LinkWad, I thought it sounded a little gross. I don’t want my links in “wads”. I want my links in organized lists and helpful clusters that help me find what I need. Even though the name is a little disgusting, I learned that with Firefox it does provide you with better organization.

Working Online without distractions might sound easier that it is. I am about to start a new job next week, and I know I am probably going to be a little distracted with other things going on. So what is the solution? Create a new profile in Firefox that is only used for work.
What you can do is create a separate profile just for work. Here is the list of some advantages:
+ No “play” bookmarks
+ No “play” usernames/passwords (I let Firefox remember mine)
+ Install only those extensions needed for work (Firefox works faster)
Navigating through our browser should be a customizable and enjoyable process. The last time I tried to use the Opera browser, I got lost in less than five minutes. Thankfully for Mozilla fans, Firefox gives you more room to customize than anybody else out there. One example of this at work is the Sidebar Icons extension.
I took a look at the blueorganizer Firefox extension a while back, but the folks behind the nifty tool dropped me an E-mail and said I should give it a second look. I did, and I have to say I am pretty impressed with the progress.
With the blueorganizer Firefox extension, your browser becomes smarter. The blueorganizer helps you personalize your web interactions based on what you already like. It harnesses your experiences to help you discover relevant new information and save time.

Sometimes you do not need to keep a bookmark forever. You might be working on a small project or just keeping a few handy for research. No mater what your reason is, the Tark Firefox extension will come in handy for these types of projects.
Now you have probably heard of the idea of setting multiple start pages via Firefox before. Did you know though that you can set your throbber to open up several bookmarks as well? It will take a little editing in about:config, but I promise it is not that hard to do.
Want to spruce up your bookmarks, but you don’t want to select each one, hit “Properties”, edit and all the rest of those boring steps? Well, if you find yourself in those shoes, then you need the Flat Bookmark Editing extension for Firefox. This extension allows you to edit bookmarks in the bookmark manager, without opening the properties window.
The folks at adaptiveblue are promising a new and different way to surf through the Web. It works with Firefox as an extension to the browser interface. Now the organization and the collection of items are pretty neat. Think of it as finding things you watch, listen to or read Online and saving them to a list. This is like your bookmarks in high definition.
One nice feature is tagging, which is always a great finding tool. Now as far as finding items, that is easy to navigate through as well. You can sort your collections in various ways. The key here is that it helps you personalize your web experience based on what you already like.
Check out the flash tutorial explaining how you use adapitiveblue to get a better idea of how it works. I’ve signed up for the beta, so hopefully I’ll get to play with this a little more in the future.
How many bookmarks do you have? Do you have so many that finding one is a three hour task you do not want to tackle? Ok, maybe three hours might be a little long, but you get my idea. Some of us have way too many bookmarks and not enough time to find what we are looking for. We need an enhanced bookmark search. Funny enough, I just ran across an extension that has that very name.
