Mozilla Podcasts

Here is an interesting story that I found from Mozilla Links. Mozilla + Podcast = Good Stuff.

The Mozilla Digital Memory Bank has announced the launch of a new weekly podcast featuring snippets from the memory bank’s audio content.

Organized a few years ago by the Center for History and New Media, the MDMB “is a permanent, open, peer-produced digital archive of Mozilla history” that “collects and permanently preserves digital texts, images, audio, video, personal narratives, and oral histories related to Mozilla, its products, and its community of developers, testers, and users”.

The first one launched, an interview with Ben Goodger, I have not had the pleasure of listening to yet, but I have a feeling it should be interesting.

A Firefox Never Forgets

The folks over at Download Squad have a nice little write up about Reminder Fox, the scheduler and to do list extension for Firefox.

I like what they had to say so much – I figured it wouldn’t hurt to share some of it here.

I’m somewhat of a productivity zealot and I love any application that helps me stay on task. Reminder Fox is designed to do just that. One of the better Firefox extensions I’ve found, Reminder Fox sits quietly in the bottom left corner of the browser and lets you manage a to do list and schedule reminders.

Better PDF Downloads in Firefox

I hate it when a PDF opens up inside of my browser, no matter which one I am using. It wastes my time and I would rather not have Adobe get it’s mitts all over my beautiful Firefox interface. Now you can either poke it back with a stick – which is not the easiest thing to do Online – or you can pick up the PDF Download extension fore Firefox. This extension allows to choose if you want to view a PDF file inside the browser (as PDF or HTML), if you want to view it outside Firefox with your default or custom PDF reader, or if you want to download it!

PDF Download

I hate the fact that I have no control when it comes to loading PDF files in the browser. That is the reason I picked up the PDF Download Firefox extension. This extension allows to choose if you want to view a PDF file inside the browser (as PDF or HTML), if you want to view it outside Firefox with your default or custom PDF reader, or if you want to download it! This is how PDF controls should have been done in the first place.
