Users Guide to the Firefox 2

Another great Firefox 2 guide has been released. This time around Kyle’s Cove gives you the best rundown about the newest member of the Mozilla family.

An overwhelming share of the web browser market has been held by Microsoft’s Internet Explorer for close to a decade now, but for the past two years their market share has been steadily declining in favor of the upstart web browser Firefox. This guide is designed to give you everything you need to know to get the most out of the Firefox 2.0 web browser.

Firefox Showcase

Firefox Showcase is a Firefox add-on that enables you to navigate open tabs as thumbnail views of the actual Web site. It can run as a sidebar or in a special Showcase tab. You can configure it in various ways, view zoomed versions of the thumbnails on mouse over, close or activate a tab by clicking on the thumbnail, and quickly switch between Web pages.

Paste and Go 2

I have yet another extension that allows you to do something quick and easy inside of a quick and easy extension. It is a perfect match, don’t you think? Paste and Go 2 allows you to cut or copy a URL, and then launch it as soon as you paste it into the address bar.

Get the Most Out of StumbledUpon

The folks over at Pronet Advertising have posted a wonderful guide to using my favorite Firefox extension, StumbledUpon.

StumbleUpon is a popular social site that over 1 million people use. It is not as popular as digg or del.icio.us, but it drove 17,209 visitors in the last 25 days to this blog. That makes it a valuable traffic source, so lets see how StumbleUpon works and how you can use it to get traffic to your website.

Another MySpace Toolbar

Yes, even I have a profile on MySpace! The question is who doesn’t these days? If you want to be able to have a little more usability built into Firefox while browsing the MySpace Web site, this is the extension made for you.

ToolbarMS is a Firefox toolbar created to provide a quick navigation menuing system for the MySpace website. It not only provides quick links to the most popular features of MySpace but also has a dynamic menuing system that can expand and adapt as MySpace changes.

Preview Your Links

I like getting a hint on what I might be seeing when I click that next link. Sure, there are a couple of different thumbnail preview tools out there, but the Thumbnail Link Preview Browser Tool might be my favorite.

Daily when you are surfing the web, you find lot of links on your favorite search engines and web directories. Then you try some of these links by reading the title or description about the link. Here comes the role of Link Preview to help you find what you want in faster and cooler way.

This helpful tool is available as both a bookmarklet and a Greasemonkey script. To pick up either one of those, make sure you check out Thumbnail Link Preview’s Web site.

Link Alert

Wouldn’t you like to know what type of file you are about to visit just by hovering over the link? That is what the folks who wrote this next extension must have had in mind. The Link Alert Firefox extension changes the cursor when you hover over a link to show you what type of file it is. If it is a .txt file, you get a little notepad icon. If it is an image, then you get a little picture icon. Such a simple idea, but it works and works well.

Folkd and Firefox

Yes I have yet another social news and information service for you. Before you roll your eyes and head on though, give me a few more seconds of your time. This new service from folkd.com is finally one that doesn’t seem like a direct ripoff of Digg.com.
