Check Multiple Checkboxes with Ease

checkboxmate

Nobody likes having to click on checkboxes, in our e-mail or on the online forms we might need to fill out.  It is a pain in the rear process, that I wish sometimes I did not have to do.  With that said, I have found one experimental add-on that promises to make the pain go away.

CheckBoxMate, an add-on for Firefox, allows you to check multiple checkboxes with ease by drawing a box around them to automatically select them all.  Here is what the developer of the extension had to say about it:

This tool is great for sites that use lots of checkboxes like a registration form or your Hotmail or Yahoo! inbox. Imagine this: Your Hotmail inbox has 10 spam messages and you don’t want to click on 10 separate checkboxes just to select them all. Now you can select them all just by drawing a box around them! To begin drawing a box, your mouse MUST first be positioned over one checkbox. Then drag to activate this tool.

Learn more about the CheckBoxMate add-on on it’s official site, or download it via the Firefox Add-ons web site.

ErrorZilla Plus

Taking a look at some of the “experimental” add-ons for Firefox, this one caught my eye.  ErrorZilla Plus looks like it is a refreshed version of the original ErrorZilla with a few more perks.

Here is a little more information from the developers…

This extension is a mod of the ErrorZilla Mod extension. I added a “Proxify” function into it. When error page shows, you can choose a web proxy from a list and browse the unreachable network address via it.  From Chinese users, it is especially useful because of the GFW’s cutoff. When hit a blocked website, just click “Proxify” and you will surf the forbidden area.

To use ErrorZilla you will need to register and login to the add-on’s specific page to gain access to it.
