Nobody likes having to click on checkboxes, in our e-mail or on the online forms we might need to fill out. It is a pain in the rear process, that I wish sometimes I did not have to do. With that said, I have found one experimental add-on that promises to make the pain go away.
CheckBoxMate, an add-on for Firefox, allows you to check multiple checkboxes with ease by drawing a box around them to automatically select them all. Here is what the developer of the extension had to say about it:
This tool is great for sites that use lots of checkboxes like a registration form or your Hotmail or Yahoo! inbox. Imagine this: Your Hotmail inbox has 10 spam messages and you don’t want to click on 10 separate checkboxes just to select them all. Now you can select them all just by drawing a box around them! To begin drawing a box, your mouse MUST first be positioned over one checkbox. Then drag to activate this tool.
