Netscape’s Digg Tracker

Now I know this must sound like some match made in Web 2.0 hell, but stick with me because it really is a pretty nice tool if you enjoy the popular social news Web site, digg.com.

Netscape’s Digg Tracker extension helps you keep tabs on what stories your Digg friends are digging, submitting, and commenting on. A new toolbar button (shown in the preview image) features the Digg digger.

When there is new activity by your friends (i.e., a new comment or a new story submission), the button will be activated and the digger will be shown with his trusty shovel. Clicking on the activated button will open a list of your friends’ activity in the sidebar, allowing you to easily browse the stories they’ve submitted, commented on, and dugg.

Cache View

Having a problem viewing a Web page that is not there anymore? Maybe it got popular and now it is a little hard to pull it up. Well, that is why cache was created – you silly little person. Now with the extension Cache View you can make good use out of it.

Displays Google’s Cache, Coral’s Cache, Wayback Machine’s Cache, Dot Cache, Tech Guru’s Cache, and Cachebin’s cache of the current tab open via right-click or Tools menu. This was made so that if the site is down in any way, especially the Digg effect and Slashdot effect, you can hopefully view it.

Are you upset with the way Digg looks now at version 3? Well, with a little scripting and some CSS skills you can roll yourself back to a more pleasing version. Personally I like the new look, but I have seen others that do not. Here is the fix for your problem.

Digg This! Firefox Extension

Due to how popular Digg is, you would think there would be more Firefox extensions related to it. I just have not seen too many become too popular. The Digg This! Firefox extension hopes to change all that.

The Digg This! toolbar adds two buttons to your main Firefox toolbar and one menu. With the toolbar buttons you can quickly goto to Digg or Digg the page you are viewing. The menu allows you to goto your Digg profile or any of the top Digg categories.

If you do a lot of digging, then this extension is right for you.

Digg Coral Cache

Don’t you hate it when you find something interesting on the front page of digg.com and it is already down due to the high traffic demands? So do I. Some people belly-ached over my last digg-related Firefox extension pick. Digg Coral Cache should be a winner with everybody. It turns those links into Coral Cache links or a user-specified cache-server link.

diggbar Toolbar

I have been a big fan of digg.com for a long time, so I was happy to see this extension. The diggbar Toolbar extension for Firefox gives you a new way to navigate through digg’s interface. You can search the entire Web site. You can submit a story with one click. It also adds a few RSS feeds for the top digg stories. If you are a fan of digg, then you must “dig” this extension.
