FireNes – Nintendo on your Browser

A somewhat questionable Firefox addition, FireNes promises to deliver you more than 2,500 Nintendo games in your browser.  After doing some research, it appears this addon is fetching games from another online Java powered NES emulator.  Controls are limited to arrow keys, Enter, Ctrl, Z and X – but hey what do you expect?

They are just Nintendo games after all.

You can pickup the add-on via Mozilla’s web site (after registration) or via Softonic.  If your looking for the same thing though without the extension, try these sites:

http://www.nintendo8.com/

Enjoy it while it last, cause I am sure it may not last for long.  Ohh and when Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom police come knocking at your door don’t say I didn’t warn you!

NoScript Makes You a Little Safer

For those folks out there who are extra suspicious about the browsing they do Online, and want to really be safe – picking up NoScript might be a good idea. Once you install this, no JavaScript or Java will be able to run via a Web site without getting your permission first.

Extra protection for your Firefox: NoScript allows JavaScript, Java and other executable content only for trusted domains of your choice, e.g. your home-banking web site.

Of course it will take a while to train, as far as allowing the good Web sites you visit to run the code they need to run, but if you want to be extra safe I would recommend at least trying this option out.
