Dive into Greasemonkey

When you think of free Firefox eBook, I would like to think that your first thought is Firefox Facts. I have found another one for you though, and this one has more to do with Greasemonkey.

Dive Into Greasemonkey is a book about programming with Greasemonkey, a Firefox extension for customizing web pages. Read it online for free.

It seems like lately I have been getting more interested in Greasemonkey scripts, so reading this book should be a lot of fun. Go pick up your own copy or read it online at DiveIntoGreasemonkey.org, or read it right here (check the box bellow).

ViewSourceWith

There hasn’t been anything new added to viewing a Web site’s source code in some time now. Personally I don’t like the viewer that comes built in with Firefox. I would rather use my own note program to view a Web site’s HTML code. What am I to do? I picked up the ViewSourceWith Firefox extension.

Firefox 2.0 Beta Fixes Tab Overflow

What the heck is tab overflow? I was confused as well:

By this point I think most people know the frustration that I had with how Mozilla handled the scrolling tab-bar in Firefox but it looks like they have found a good solution. By default I can now have a much more reasonable number of tabs open, in the area of 20-30, before the tabs start to scroll. Thank you Mozilla!

SiteSays Web Comments

Everybody has an opinion and many folks love to share that opinion. Every day it seems like there are more and more ways of leaving your opinions and comments for your favorite Web sites. SiteSays can be added to that list as well. Now you can pick up the Firefox extension that goes along with it.

BrowseAtWork

Need to do some browsing at work or school? This extension allows you to open the current page, or a link on the current Web page, anonymously with BrowseAtWork.com by adding a shortcut to the context menu. This is ideal for viewing webpages blocked by many corporate or school filters.

URL Fixer

URL Fixer corrects typos in URLs that you enter in the address bar. For example, if you type google.con, it will correct it to google.com (asking first, if you enable confirmation). This extension should help those of us who have a hard time finding the right keyboard keys every once in a while.

URL Shortener

Here is yet another Firefox extension that will give you a shorter URL for those long links you navigate to. For example, let us say you were looking at a Web page that was a few folders deep into the Web site. Now instead of having to copy that big long URL, you can now put it through URL Shortener and get something a little easier to handle.
