Working Online without distractions might sound easier that it is. I am about to start a new job next week, and I know I am probably going to be a little distracted with other things going on. So what is the solution? Create a new profile in Firefox that is only used for work.
What you can do is create a separate profile just for work. Here is the list of some advantages:
+ No “play” bookmarks
+ No “play” usernames/passwords (I let Firefox remember mine)
+ Install only those extensions needed for work (Firefox works faster)
It is never too early to start celebrating Halloween. Heck, most of the Wal-marts out there already probably have Christmas stuff out by now. How can you bring a little wicked Halloween cheer to your browser?
Navigating through our browser should be a customizable and enjoyable process. The last time I tried to use the Opera browser, I got lost in less than five minutes. Thankfully for Mozilla fans, Firefox gives you more room to customize than anybody else out there. One example of this at work is the Sidebar Icons extension.
I like any tool that can help me see where I am going. You wouldn’t walk into a haunted house without a flash light, right? Well, think of the Internet as your haunted house, and Floating Link Preview as your flash light. This Greasemonkey script gives you a nice thumbnail image whenever you hover over any link to let you know what is behind that link.
Torpark is a browser based on Mozilla’s Firefox that promises to give folks anonymous Web browsing. Why is this something new? Well, it is the first anonymous browsing tool that doesn’t require you make a dozen changes to your browser or jump through anymore hoops past installing to work.
Torpark uses the Tor network of internet routers set up by the Electronic Frontier Foundation that already has tens of thousands of regular users.
Whenever any computer connects to the net it freely shares information about the address it is using. This is so any data it requests is sent back to the right place.
The Tor network tries to stop this information being shared in two ways. First, it encrypts traffic between a computer and the Tor network of routers – this makes it much harder to spy on the traffic and pinpoint who is doing what.
Now living in the dusty plains of northern Texas, I don’t do a lot of surfing. Actually, I can honestly say I have never surfed before. For those of you who do surf without a keyboard, WindFox is an extension to take with you to the beach.
Have you updated your version of Firefox yet?
Mozilla Corp. Thursday updated its Firefox browser to fix 7 flaws, including 4 pegged by the open-source developer as “Critical.” Of the four critical vulnerabilities patched in Firefox 18.104.22.168, none are currently being exploited, Mozilla said in detailed descriptions of each fixed flaw. In fact, Mozilla said in several of the descriptions that it was not sure whether the specific vulnerabilities could be exploited, but had issued patches just in case.
Easter eggs hidden away inside of programs is nothing new. What I didn’t know till this morning was that even Firefox has a few tricks up it’s sleeves.
It was a lot of fun to read but one thing that really struck me as interesting was this about:mozilla “Easter Egg” that they mention. The Book of Mozilla has been something that even the first version of Netscape has had in it. You can pull it up in Firefox/Netscape by typing in about:mozilla into the Address Bar and pressing Enter.
With pumpkin season close upon us, and with Halloween only a few weeks away, it may be time to start making plans – and maybe some stencils.
Can you beat this jack-o-lantern from last year with one of your own? Better start practicing now.
