Reframe It in Firefox

Want to be able to comment on any web site out there on the Web, without the permission of the web site in question?  Reframe It opens up a new portal of communication, by allowing you to communicate through specific comments next to the web site you are referencing. 

Why just send a simple text-based note, when you can send that and the web site you are talking about all in one swift, easy to access movement?  Here is the extension in action:

It also supports sharing via Facebook, Twitter, RSS, HTML, and direct email so you can quickly share your comments.

Reframe It allows you to simple say what you want to where you want to.  This extension would be perfect (as an example) if you were working on a web site re-design, and wanted to show your boss the areas you wanted to work on.  Another example, would be citing research, when working on an article.

You can learn more about Reframe It via the Reframeit.com web site and pick up the Firefox add-on for the service on the Firefox Add-ons site.

What Firefox Features Could You Do Without?

firefox features Everybody and their grandmother has done a list of Firefox features you would like to see come to the browser, but what features could you do without?  There is no doubt that fans of Firefox like a light browsing experience, so could Firefox do with a little house cleaning of features not used or loved by many? 

Security Zone Policy Errors – This seems to be more of a problem than most people realize.  From this one blog post, I see people coming in every day having issues with it.  So, should Firefox be relying on Windows security settings for downloading applications and other potentially unsafe files from the Internet?

Descriptions for Bookmarks – Have you ever right-clicked a bookmark, Went down to properties and typed in a description about a page you had saved?  No, I haven’t either – so this might be another Firefox feature ready for the junk yard.  Name, Location, and Keyword is good enough for me.

Now it is your turn, what Firefox feature could you live without?

intensedebate-logo Firefox Facts Bonus!  This morning I installed Intense Debate for FirefoxFacts.com.  I am really excited to see how much better this makes the commenting system here on the web site.  No registration in necessary, but if you do – there are some cool extra features you will get, such as reputation points, comment voting, and tons of other cool things.  (Learn More!)

Firefox 2 Unstable?

I found this random snipit from the Center for Citizen Media.

Running the latest version of Firefox is a huge drag — repeated freezes that require a forced shutdown of the application on my MacBook Pro. Growing pains for the Mozilla folks or just sloppy coding?

That’s it. Now why go Online, post a totally random comment and not back it up with any proof? Now, I have never used Firefox on any Apple product, but these sort of cheap shots just make me a little angry. If this is “citizen media” I think I favor the older kind best. ;)
