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.

The Fox Tales

This is just something you don’t get anywhere else but Mozilla.

Spread Firefox has been a great place to meet and discuss ideas for spreading Firefox, but where do you brag once you’ve executed them? In honor of the 200 million milestone, we’re pleased to announce The Fox Tales, which tells the stories of other famous underdogs who were challenged, ridiculed and doubted and invites you to contribute to our own underdog story—the Firefox story.

I wish I could say that after breaking both my legs in a wrestling match against Triple H, Firefox fed me chicken noodle soup and taught me how to walk again. I can not. There are some interesting posts up there already though, so go check it out.

Digg This! Firefox Extension

Due to how popular Digg is, you would think there would be more Firefox extensions related to it. I just have not seen too many become too popular. The Digg This! Firefox extension hopes to change all that.

The Digg This! toolbar adds two buttons to your main Firefox toolbar and one menu. With the toolbar buttons you can quickly goto to Digg or Digg the page you are viewing. The menu allows you to goto your Digg profile or any of the top Digg categories.

If you do a lot of digging, then this extension is right for you.

Morning Coffee

Do you find yourself doing the same thing every single morning? I know I do. As soon as I sit down, I usually fire up Firefox and launch my Yahoo! Mail, a few Web hosting forums, and a few other miscellaneous Web sites. Instead of having to open each Web site by hand, wouldn’t it be easier to have this automated for me? The Morning Coffee Firefox extension does that job and it does it well.

The Firefox gBrain extension gives me a “Googlized” version of a second brain, as far as my browsing habits go. I guess beggars can not be choosers.
