Dummy Text Addon for Firefox

lipsumgen Many designers, when they are in need of some dummy text to fill in a layout won’t do what I do.  Personally, I like just to write random sentences such as, “The duck likes to party with the midget at Wrestlemania.” over and over.

The dummy text they use has a name though – it is called Lorem Ipsum.  While it does resemble classical Latin, it (much like my sentence before) has no real meaning.

Dummy Lipsum, a Firefox extension, does the hard work for you and will auto generate this text for you.  After installing you can setup how it starts, you can show HTML tags and you can also set how much text it generates and how it is formatted.

When your done, you just hit the generate button, and then copy it to your clipboard.  From there, you can paste it any place you might need it.  As a bonus tip, I’ll also share this little tidbit of information.  You can do the same without an extension by just visiting the lipsum.com web site.  The Firefox addon though does make this auto generation a little more handy to have when your in a hurry to generate some text that really means nothing at all.
