Firefox Movie Remake

Did you know there was a Firefox movie?  Yes, there was – it was about jets and Clint Eastwood.  What I want to know is when will we see a modern day remake about Mozilla?

I know I’d pay good money to see it.  Maybe insert some covert Google Chrome or Microsoft spies into the mix?  We have next summer’s blockbuster in the making.

Do We Really Need an Add-on for That?

Pardon me as I put on my fake surprise pants on… wait a minute, you mean clicking on Firefox’s close button actually closes the tab your on?  After you have looked at as many Firefox add-ons as I have some of them really catch you off guard. Yes, Captain Obvious – a fast way to close your tabs is to hit Firefox’s close button!

Reading a ‘bit more about the extension for Firefox, it starts to make a ‘bit more sense:

Do you find it annoying to have to click on the small cross to close a tab ? Now with Fast Close Tabs you can just click on the upper right cross from the window to close the active tab. No more need to precisely point at the tab close cross.

Thank you Fast Close Tabs for allowing me to start my Monday off with a giggle.

Firefox 3’s Colbert Bump was Real!

Not that I had any doubts, but it turns out the Colbert Bump for Firefox 3 was real! For those not knowing what we are speaking of check out the definition of the Colbert Bump for more information.

Here’s what we did:  we looked at downloads of Firefox 3 by users within the U.S. – and then we drilled down to a minute-by-minute view to see what, if anything, could be detected.  At minute 23 of the broadcast, Colbert said, “Firefox 3 just got the Colbert Bump.”  What happened next?

Check out the timeline graph and just in case you missed the plugtastic segment, here it is again:

Firefox 3’s About:Config Warning!

Well I have finally switched over to using Firefox 3 – RC1 and found this warning very amusing…

Firefox 3's about:config Warning

Now I just wonder how many people will really think Firefox has a warranty? :)

6 Best Oddball Firefox Extensions

Since today is Friday, I figured why not lay back – kick my feet up and just look for some really wacky and maybe even useless Firefox extensions for you to play with? Here’s what made the list for this round up of oddball extensions.

Secret Word Grabber – Inspired by the “secret word” off of Peewee’s Playhouse. Yeah, that’s enough of that one already. As long as it doesn’t expose itself to me we will be alright.

OfficePoltergeist – Turn your web browser into a web server… of terror!

Anti-Paranoia – No, this extension will not spy and destroy your personal data, remember: Everything is good! Don’t panic!

Firesomething – This extension will give Firefox an identity crisis by generating a new randomized browser name every time you open a new window. Who doesn’t want to use Firetoad?

RandomMessage – For those of us out there who really do like to be bugged with random messages with no real purpose behind them. Excellent tool for those people who want to look busier than they really are.

STOP! Hammertime! – You can never get enough MC Hammer. Yeah, I had the baggy pants when I was young and you know you did too.
