How Can We Improve Firefox Facts?

Firefox Facts has been around a long time.  As some of you might know, this website’s roots come from back when I worked at Lockergnome.  It was Chris Pirillo’s idea to create this website and the free ebook at the time and since then it has turned into one of the most popular Firefox tips websites out there today.  However, now I need your help.  I would like to hear your feedback about how I can improve Firefox Facts and make it better for you.

Do You Use the Home Button?

Firefox Home ButtonI have a very simple question for you this Friday.  Do you still use the home button in Firefox, or have you eliminated it to save yourself a little more browsing room? According to a recent study on the navigational hot spots within Firefox, Home is still ranks 37.6% as far as the most popular interface features go.

So leave your thoughts in the comments.  Is the home button still relevant in your day to day browsing, or have you ditched it?

Add a Dislike Button to Facebook

Adding Dislike to Facebook You can “like” things on Facebook, so why can you not “dislike” things too? If you use Facebook, and you have Firefox – you can now add the feature some have really been wanting. You get the ability to dislike things that your friends have posted.  These two add-ons (pick the one you like most) will get the job done.

Facebook Dislike – This is an extension for all the pro-dislike Facebook groups out there.  After installing, you can dislike posts, and each time you do, the author of the extension keep track of it for everybody.  So this way, if somebody else installs the add-on, they too can see all the stories that have been disliked.

Facebook Dislike Button – Now why feature two add-ons that do the same job?  Well with this add-on, a comment will also be posted on your friend’s page on your behalf notifying them that you disliked the story using the dislike button. 

While Facebook themselves mull over the idea of adding this to the user interface, you can add this functionality to your Facebook page here and now. 

Just do me a favor and don’t dislike me!

I am open to any and all suggestions so feel free to just start one big comment post here and give me all the feedback you have. This web site is for you – so I want to make sure you are getting what you want, what you need and what you love.

Thanks! As always I appreciate each and every one of our readers here and look forward to bringing in some more.

Merge MySpace and Firefox

Do you want to bring together the best of MySpace and Firefox? Sure Firefox is sleek and nice and MySpace is about as pretty as that Hungarian transfer student that wanted to take you to your prom. That doesn’t mean they can not get along though. The best tool to gain access to MySpace that I have ever found is the unofficial MySpace Toolbar.

Automatically login to Myspace, instantly access your messages, view hidden comments, create styled comments/bulletins and more with this intuitive and customizable toolbar!

One new feature they have added is notifications when important things happen. You know, like when that friend of yours posts the 101 reasons why you shouldn’t use your toes to pick your nose.. or something to that effect.

Slashdotter

Personally I never really got into the whole Slashdot thing. Sure, I read it from time to time. Most of the time though, it just confused the heck out of me. I guess some of it was a little over my head. Well, if you have ever used Slashdot and figured you wanted a few more tools to help you navigate the Web site, then you need the Slashdotter Firefox extension.
