RSS Ticker

Ever wanted an extension that would turn your Firefox installation into a news room interface? Love them or hate them, tickers on some of the big news stations can be pretty helpful. If nothing else, it gives you something to read. Now lets bring that ticker to the browser and toss RSS into the mix. RSS Ticker scrolls your live bookmarks (also known as news feeds/RSS feeds) across your browser, a la a cable-news style ticker.

Image Assistant

Looking at pictures and graphics through our browsers is one of the small joys in life that many of us take for granted. There are other ways of viewing those graphics, and you don’t have to keep them in the browser to do so. Image Assistant helps you bring those pictures into another program.

LinkChecker

I just launched a new Web site not too long ago. One of the annoyances of setting up a new Web site is checking all the links to make sure they all go somewhere. This Firefox extension takes all that hard work out of the equation. LinkChecker does just what the name implies; it checks links.

Froggr

I haven’t really understood or liked a lot of the games that have been built in as extensions for Firefox. For those folks out there who actually like to break out into a random game or two, there is Froggr.

Froggr is a clone of the classic Frogger game. The thing that is different here is they took the last vowel out of the name, which makes it ten times more fun.

Greasemonkey

This is one Firefox extension that I can’t belive I haven’t talked about before. For the five people who don’t know about Greasemonkey, I’ll try to be informative and cover all the bases. The best way to sum it up is that Greasemonkey delivers you tiny extensions inside an extension.

Forcing Extensions to Work on Bon Echo

If you just can’t wait till the Bon Echo version of Firefox is finalized, then I have found a good tutorial for you. The Web site explains how you can get your current list of extensions working with the new Bon Echo Alpha 1 release of Firefox. I don’t know if I would recommend this for the novice user. If you feel comfortable sticking your hand in Bon Echo’s guts though, feel free to try it out.
