Scuttle

Scuttle is another social bookmark and link sharing Web site, such as digg.com and del.icio.us. From what I have seen of Scuttle, they aren’t reinventing the round ball in that department of Web 2.0. One thing they have done right is put out a Firefox extension that is worth picking up if you are a fan of the services Scuttle provides.

Redirect Remover

Redirects on links are usually more annoying than helpful. Some are put there to act as “click counters” while others really have no point at all. Can we just get rid of them so we can travel on to the next Web page? That doesn’t seem like a big problem to me.

If you want to do just that, pick up the Redirect Remover Firefox extension.

Digg Coral Cache

Don’t you hate it when you find something interesting on the front page of digg.com and it is already down due to the high traffic demands? So do I. Some people belly-ached over my last digg-related Firefox extension pick. Digg Coral Cache should be a winner with everybody. It turns those links into Coral Cache links or a user-specified cache-server link.

Submit Your Firefox Tips, Tricks and Links

Find something interesting on or about Firefox today? I’m always looking for more submissions. If you fit into that category, send them in to me! You can send me the basic information, or do a full write up like you see here on the Web site. I’ll pick the best, and get them posted as soon as possible. Also, if you do a longer entry (one or two full paragraphs) be sure to leave your name and a link, so I can give you the proper credit.

Link Dragging

Links don’t have to be such a drag. We all use links on Web sites in different ways. Some of use might be happy with clicking our day away and staying in one tab. Did you know that in Firefox you can drag any link on a Web site to the address bar to open it up in that window?

Another quick tip is dragging the link to an empty space on the tab bar. If you do that, it will then open the link up in a new tab. Now go out and change the way you drag your links.
