Firefox Facts has finally finished moving from our old sponsored hosting account from another hosting provider, to a brand new (and powerful) VPS hosting account. What is a VPS hosting account, and what does this mean for you, you and you over there? Check out the details on my fantastic other website, Mitchelaneous.com.

This year for Christmas, I am doing things a little differently. Instead of actually getting presents for the thousands of readers we have coming in here daily (or my favorite 5,000 or so that subscribe to the free RSS feed). I wanted to give you the gift of two of my other projects you may or may not know about.
This is my blog filled with geek candy. More personal and of the wall in nature, this is my personal spot to rant and rave about any miscellaneous thing that might cross my mind. From web development help to custom desktop icons – I am sure there is something for everybody to enjoy here.

Thanks to one and all for making Firefox Facts one of the most popular Firefox blogs out there in the world today. Hope you all have a happy holiday, and I promise to keep delivering you the best of the Firefox world day after day.
As if we all needed another way to backup or sync our bookmarks from computer to computer – there is now a Firefox extension that allows you to do it via Box.net and their free file hosting service.
Here are a few kind words from the creators of the Box.net Bookmark Synchronizer extension:
Backup your bookmarks! Use the Box.net Backup tool to save your favorite bookmarks online or to sync bookmarks between multiple computers.
Does this extension do anything that the others do not? No, not really – but if you have been looking for something to do with that Box.net hosting you have, this might be one way to put it to good use.
When it comes to using some of the Online hosting systems out there, sometimes the Web interface just does not cut the case. The Firefox Universal Uploader extension hopes to change that though by giving you a much better interface to work with.
Here is a little more information about the extension:
As the name says, this firefox extension allows you to upload/download files from any website using a friendly interface. Upload files/photos/videos to Flickr, Picasa, Youtube, Box.net(1GB of free space), Facebook, Webshots and OmniDrive in this version. Next versions would support other websites like Google Videos etc. You can add multiple files to the queue at a time. Extension will take care of uploading them for you.
I think the services themselves should be releasing tools like this. I don’t think that will happen though – so until monkeys fly out of a hole somewhere on me – this will have to do.
Now it isn’t very often that I interject any of my other projects here on Firefox Facts, but I hope this time around can be a small exception. I am very proud of the fact that I have been podcasting for two years now via my Web hosting podcast – the Web Hosting Show.
I just posted my two year anniversary show, and I would love it if you would listen to it and let me know what you think. Think of it like Firefox Facts, but it is about Web hosting and there is a lot more talking and silliness involved.
Web hosting company HostMySite.com (hostmysite.com) announced on Friday it contributes free, managed, dedicated hosting to SpreadFirefox, the online volunteer community devoted to promoting the Mozilla Firefox Web browser. To celebrate the two-hundred-millionth download of the Web browser, SpreadFirefox launched the Fox Tales Website (thefoxtales.com), providing users with a venue to share stories on how they promote Firefox.
