Setup Reminders in Firefox

ReminderFox in Action

I love any add-on or web site service that helps me organize my day to day life and duties.  Being somewhat of an organizational nut, I do have to say one of my favorite Firefox add-ons out there is ReminderFox.  This add-on for Firefox remembers things, so you don’t have to.

Firefox 3, We Will See You in June!

firefox-release I have never been one for doing a lot of news but I’ll wear the suit and tie any ways while writing this quick post.  According to Wired’s tech blog the final release of Firefox 3 is due in June of this year.  This was disclosed to a roundtable discussion of tech bloggers (I wasn’t invited to!*) on Wednesday. 

To give you a timeline to work with, right now we are at Firefox 3, beta 4.  Firefox 3, beta 5 is expected to be released the first week of April (hopefully not on the 1st!). That should though be the last of the beta releases for Firefox 3.

In May we should be seeing the first release candidate hit the streets, and then most of the work will go into kicking extension developers in the pants to try to get them to officially update their code to work with Firefox 3.

Quick Add to Google Calendar

Are you searching for a way to quickly add appointments to your Google Calendar? Well if you are using Firefox then you are in luck. If you are using one of those other browsers, then you are beyond saving.

The extension is very simple. It adds a new shortcut (CTRL + ; [semi-colon]) to your browser window that launches a simple text dialog. In the text box you can enter whatever you would in the Google Calendar Quick Add feature and if you hit ENTER it will create the event for you in your default calendar. Remember, you must be logged in for it to work, if not, I’ll remind you anyways. The icing on the cake, is that it will find any Google Calendar window that’s opened and reload it for you so you can see your new appointment.

The Google Calendar Quick Add Firefox Extension is the thing you need to pick up to get the job done.
