Hello all, I have a short and simple personal message to toss in with our regular scheduled postings. I know for a few months back there, the number of posts here really fell a little flat while I dealt with a number of personal issues and triumphs.

Want to remove all the clutter from your favorite site to read, and get right to the text? TidyRead, an extension for Firefox, removes all the extra stuff from a web page or article that can make reading on the Web difficult at times.
This browser add-on does a simple, yet effective, job of stripping away the extra content from news or blog article pages, leaving you with nicely formatted text to enjoy. Since the new version is overlaid on top of the old version, switch between the two is very easy. You also have the options to customize it to suit your own reading style too (white on black, black on white, white on green, ect).
Well worth trying out, if you find some of the content on the Web a little hard on your eyes. You can pick up TidyRead on the Firefox Add-ons web site.
I got to go through the fun of getting a splog shut down this weekend because they were copying every post made here on Firefox Facts almost word for word and post for post.
I know a lot of folks have a problem with getting this done – so I have posted what I went through to get it done on my own personal blog (no splogging there!) to hopefully help others in need.
Now when it comes to MySpace, general navigation is usually thrown out the window. Well, that is before you see the huge “I want to be a gangster” images and bouncing hearts all over the place.
If you want to gain some control back when it comes to viewing MySpace profiles (and you have Greasemonkey) I would suggest picking up the MySpaceHax user script.
This allows you to have a neat menu on the right over every profile that gives you quick access to: Add, Add to Group, Block, Blog, View Comments, View Pictures and View Groups. This is the Greasemonkey script that every MySpace addict needs to pick up to make MySpace kind of usable.
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.
