Right now there are not many options when it comes to opening Web sites in Firefox. The OpenBox Firefox extension gives you a few more options when opening up a new Web site. You can choose to open it in the current tab, a new tab or a new window.

I often find myself surfing from Web site to Web site looking for something to do. If you have found yourself in this place more than once, than give the Xultris Firefox extension a shot. When clicked, it launches you into an adictive game of Tetris. This is the ultimate answer to time killing.
I have been a big fan of digg.com for a long time, so I was happy to see this extension. The diggbar Toolbar extension for Firefox gives you a new way to navigate through digg’s interface. You can search the entire Web site. You can submit a story with one click. It also adds a few RSS feeds for the top digg stories. If you are a fan of digg, then you must “dig” this extension.
The Grocery List Generator Firefox extension helps you with making a list of things you need to get from the store. This just seems a little strange to me. Maybe I am a little “old school” but then again, the beauty of Firefox is there is an extension for everybody.
This extension does a good job at creating an organized list of things you might need to make your grocery shopping as easy as possible. Give me an extension that will watch my undies, then we will talk.
Sometimes we want to browse a little bigger. Maybe the Web page looks better that way. Maybe you just like to think big. No matter what the reason is, this Full Screen Firefox extension should get the job done.
InfoLister is an extension for Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird and Nvu that gathers various information (such as themes, extensions and plugins) about Firefox/Thunderbird and saves it to a file. Now where the interesting part comes in, is the ability to upload that list as an XML file so you can share what extensions you are using with your friends Online.
Thanks goes to Douglas for this very interesting tip. Here is how you can find out a little more about using the output of InfoLister to fit your needs:
Reading the source code from a Web site can be really confusing if you don’t know what you are looking at. Thankfully for those of us who get mixed up with all the code with no fluff, there is the View Rendered Source Chart extension for Firefox.
It allows you to view the source of a Web site with color coded boxes around all the important parts. It might sound a little silly, but it is a great way to clearly see what the code is about and to learn what it does.
According to this Market Share Web site, Firefox is now enjoying 10% of the browser market. That puts Internet Explorer at 85% and everybody else in that other 5%. Firefox is gaining steam and I don’t know what could happen to make them fall off the track. Want to read some more debate on the topic? Check out the digg.com comments to this news.
At CyberNet Technology News, they have a nice article about Firefox’s memory usage and what extensions you can get rid of to lighten the memory load. Some of the memory leakers are: IE Tab, Session Saver, and Forecast Fox.
Memory leaks will slow down Firefox’s performance. However, if you don’t see a problem and you like browsing the way you are browsing, just keep doing what your doing. The sky isn’t falling just yet, but it is good to have this information handy.
