No mater what your way of doing things is, there always seems to be a better way to do it. When it comes to saving links and images on the Web, I have two extensions that will make your life on the Web a heck of a lot easier. With both the Save Link in Folder and Save Image in Folder extensions, you will become a browsing master.

For those three people who might not know, Fark.com is a collection of interesting links from all over the Web. With something as old and popular as Fark, you would think somebody has written a Firefox extension to help you master your farking, right? That they have, and its name is Farky.
The folks over at Small Business Pipeline have put together a nice extension list for small businesses.
Enter Networking Pipeline’s crack researcher (that is, yours truly). He braved the toughest of the Web, scoured extension sites, and crawled through the underbelly of the Internet to find for you the absolute coolest collaboration and communication Firefox extensions around.
I want to thank Joe (sorry, no URL mentioned) for sending this link in to me. Fire up the Fox looks to create a starting point for anybody that might be new to the Firefox interface or ways of doing things. Extensions, themes, help, and more are all covered with a few examples for each. Now what I want to know is where is the link to the free Firefox Facts eBook?

Us power surfers need a good way to open multiple links at the same time. Clicking on each one (one my one) can be a tedious task. That is where the openselectedlinks Firefox extension comes into play. This extension adds a menu item to open selected links. Lets say you wanted to open five links. All you would have to do is select those five links, right-click and hit “Open 5 selected links”. Give your clicking finger a rest!
WebCrumbz says that they, “Refind links you never knew you’d need, to those you never knew”. So what does that really mean? They keep track of your history, and serve you up your own version of the Web. If you want to travel outside the box, you can also check out what other users have been visiting as well.
Here is another neat way of watching what everybody else is browsing:
Swarm is a graphical map of hundreds of websites, all connecting to each other. It updates itself every second with where people are going and coming from. As sites become more popular, they move towards the center of the swarm and grow larger. Conversely, sites that lose traffic move away from the center and grow smaller.
Go grab the extention and join in on the fun!
Want to change the way you look at your bookmark toolbar? I have had mine dragged to the top (by the file menu) for some time now. Did you know you can get more toolbar room if you remove the bookmark’s name? All you see is the favicon. Now you have more room to put your favorite Web sites!
Gnafi sounds like something I would say when I sneeze. There is no sneeze guard here, though. The Gnafi extension keeps track of any changes made to your links and does necessary updates for you. Think of it as a brain behind your browser that you don’t have to worry about.
