I couldn’t be more blunt with the headline, and it pretty much tells the entire story here. Pixlr, a great online photo editor has now got an extension that will work with Firefox. With it, you have access to import and edit any picture you find into the Pixlr web site.
So who really needs Pixlr? It is a great alternative for us normal people out there who may not need the entire Photoshop suite of tools, just a simple and easy to use editor. Having it online and with easy access via Firefox makes it an even handier tool for the web developers out there to have access to. The only thing you need to have to make it work is Flash.
One more nice feature about the service is it is super quick. Just playing around with the editor on its own, it loaded up in under two seconds easily. To pick up the Firefox add-on for Pixlr, go check out the Firefox Add-on site. To learn more about the Pixlr editor, be sure to visit pixlr.com.

Just finished up putting together the first (of hopefully many more) web hosting eBooks for you to enjoy. The Best of the Web Hosting Show Guides is a collection of some of the most popular guides I have posted and talked about here on the Web Hosting Show podcast.
Unlike other eBook deals, you get an extra perk with this setup. You can download both the digital eBook version, or head over the the official page for it and pick up all five chapters as audio downloads too. I wanted to give to you the best of both worlds. The topics covered in the eBook cover all aspects of the web hosting world:
- Moving from Web Host to Web Host
- Getting going with your own Ecommerce Store Online
- How to Find a Job in the Web Hosting Industry
- Best Methods and Tips for Setting up a New Blog
- The Ever Popular Handy Guide to Domain Names
Download the PDF and let me know what you think. Also as far as distribution goes, please feel free to share the link to download it to anybody and everybody you know. This is a project of mine I have been working on getting together for some time now and I want everybody to know it is free of charge.
