Firefox Images Helpers and Tweaks

Firefox Image ToolbeltWith Firefox and a few handy extensions, you can take any gallery of photos or images and get more out of them. Where other browser might fall a little short, Firefox knows how to treat the image loving freaks out there. Need some help with your digital images? Firefox has you covered.

Image Toolbar – get that old IE6 hover-over toolbar on Firefox. You know the one that used to let you save, coy, print and more? Yeah I try to block using Internet Explorer out of my mind too.

Image Zoom – Allows you to zoom in on images to get a closer look. Of course, you still face the eventual pixelation of the image, but nice to have if you don’t want to export the image to an image editor.

PicLens – This is my favorite of the “view your images in a new way” extensions. PicLens instantly transforms your browser into an full-screen slideshow experience. It also comes with support for Flickr, Facebook and Google Images right out of the box.

Open Image In New Tab – I bet you can’t figure out what this extension does. If you said “washes the car” you would be wrong my friend. Get a new right-click menu option to open your images in a new tab. Yes, it really is that simple.

Have any other image extensions that deserve my attention?

MySpace Hacks

Now when it comes to MySpace, general navigation is usually thrown out the window. Well, that is before you see the huge “I want to be a gangster” images and bouncing hearts all over the place.

If you want to gain some control back when it comes to viewing MySpace profiles (and you have Greasemonkey) I would suggest picking up the MySpaceHax user script.

This allows you to have a neat menu on the right over every profile that gives you quick access to: Add, Add to Group, Block, Blog, View Comments, View Pictures and View Groups. This is the Greasemonkey script that every MySpace addict needs to pick up to make MySpace kind of usable.
