Share Anything Online Anonymously

Hikkup is an interesting web site where you can send things out to folks anonymously. It was ment to ask those secret type of questions or make those hidden comments just to kind of get it out of your head and maybe get an opinion or two about it.

Well now they have a Firefox extension that only helps the sharing love.

Have you ever come across something on the Web that you wished you could forward to someone anonymously? Now you can. Just highlight the text, right-click, and choose “Send Anonymously!”. The recipient will get the text, a link, and any comments you add without knowing its you (you can reveal your identity if you want to).

Send Anonymous Stuff

Give it a shot and see what type of fun stuff you can figure out to send or that you can get from others. Might not seem like it would be, but it is slightly addicting and entertaining.

Turn Firefox into a Screensaver

How many times have you said to yourself, “I really wish Firefox was a screensaver too!”. Come on, tell me – I won’t tell anybody else. Well ok, I haven’t ever wondered that myself but just in case you ever have, there is now a solution to use. Tryout the FoxSaver extension for Firefox.

Here’s a link to the offical web site for more information:
http://www.foxsaver.com/

Overall I’d say this is a neat idea for a Firefox addon, but not sure if it is useful just yet. They do have a big selection of neat photos – but i would really like to add my own – or have it pick up on my Flickr account (or insert your favorite photo host here.) Do you think this extension shows promise too?

Make Firefox Family Friendly

Glubble - Family Friendly BrowserUnlike most parental software you can put on your PC, I think Glubble might stand a chance to really do some good. Glubble is an attempt at making a kid friendly version of the Firefox browser. To get it up and running, all you need to do is to install an extension. Its just that simple

Glubble Trusted Surfing for children under 12 years of age enables families to be sure they only see the best of the web they choose to allow.

Glubble Altered Search makes Google and Yahoo show results from childrens trusted Glubbleworld instead of the world wide web.

Child friendly look and feel with interfaces for pre-reading and reading age young children.

I have two nephews and a niece, and I think they really should get started pretty soon with being used to the idea of getting on the Web. I might have to give Glubble an official kid test with them to see if it is a keeper or not.

Give it a shot, and for more information check out this article about it via the TechCrunch crew.

Firefox Got Your Back

I Got Your Back!No, I’m not talking browser ghetto slang, I am talking about the new project I found out about on Spread Firefox. It is a pretty neat concept. Here is how they put it, as I am afraid my explanation of it might confuse some.

Our page is set-up so that users can come and ‘fill in’ the Firefox logo by claiming a pixel. They can use their spot on the logo to express themselves and to shoutout to the world about anyone who has got their back.

Join in on the fun! I’d like nothing more than to bring these people a few more pixels in. Also see if you can find me (I’m the guy with the coconut and hammer) – and include as the guy that “told you” about Firefox. Just type in Mitch.

Chat in Your Sidebar

Want to use the Gabbly chat service in your browser’s sidebar?

Well first, I guess I should tell you what Gabbly is about. It is a free service that allows you to chat in real time with folks that are on the same Web site as you. Now you can get your chat in a new way – via your sidebar in Firefox. I like this a lot better than the default “floating window” that the chat usually comes in.

Firefox Calendars

I always hate this time of year because I wait till the last minute to find a new calendar.

I like to have a less than digital one so that I can write dates and important information on it. With time management, I am still a little behind the times old school. One set of calendars that caught my attention yesterday were these on and about Firefox.

Now you can promote Firefox all the new year long with this 2007 calendars created by yours truly. They are available as PDFs in A4 and Letter sizes in two colors: Dark and Fire. Hopefully, some more will come soon.

I have to say these are pretty neat and I might have to save one for myself.
