1 It seems like I am always doing research on one thing or another, for a future article or a future project of mine.  There are not that many tools out there to help you collect your information and save it for later.  The ScrapBook extension for Firefox is one of the few.  It is simple and also allows to save web pages and organize them as you see fit.

Here are some of the features ScrapBook provides…

  • Save Web page
  • Save snippet of Web page
  • Save Web site
  • Organize the collection in the same way as Bookmarks
  • Full text search and quick filtering search of the collection
  • Editing of the collected Web page
  • Text/HTML edit feature resembling Opera’s Notes

Top 3 Mozilla Store Favorites

The Mozilla Store has been getting better and bigger ever since it’s launch. They have tons of cool Firefox or Mozilla themed merchandise for you to pick up. To help you with your shopping I though I would point out a few of my favorites that they have in stock right now.

#1 – Firefox Plushie – How is this not the cutest thing ever? You can get your own plush red panda (also known as firefoxes) then hug it, squeeze it and name it George.

Google Notebook

Maybe I just have not been paying attention, but this is the first time I have ever heard of Google Notebook. I saw it as a widget on Google’s personalized homepage. It looked pretty neat, so I checked it out and found out they have a Firefox extension for it as well.
