Turn Firefox into a Screensaver

How many times have you said to yourself, “I really wish Firefox was a screensaver too!”. Come on, tell me – I won’t tell anybody else. Well ok, I haven’t ever wondered that myself but just in case you ever have, there is now a solution to use. Tryout the FoxSaver extension for Firefox.

Here’s a link to the offical web site for more information:
http://www.foxsaver.com/

Overall I’d say this is a neat idea for a Firefox addon, but not sure if it is useful just yet. They do have a big selection of neat photos – but i would really like to add my own – or have it pick up on my Flickr account (or insert your favorite photo host here.) Do you think this extension shows promise too?

Firefox Themes Directory

Need to find a new Firefox theme, but don’t want a new way to browse through them all? There is no doubt that there are a lot of themes out there to pick from – and the folks at Learn Firefox have put together a really nice way for you to navigate through them.

Welcome to Firefox Themes presented by Learn Firefox! Here you will find screenshots of all themes that are compatible with Firefox 2.0. The link located above each screenshot will take you to the download page on the Official Firefox Addons site.

The new theme directory on the Web site gives you screenshots of each theme and a link to get to the Firefox Addons page about that said theme. This takes a really simple idea and just makes it that much better. Browse through the selections yourself and be sure to let them know you appreciate the time it took to get this all put together!

Best of the Links – Firefox Edition

Firefox Bank CardYeah how would you like to be able to whip that out at your local mall? You’d have them gazing in awe of the awesomeness that if Firefox. Either that or they’d just say, “what’s that, your dog?”. Either way – you make a good impression.

The same kind of impression all these links left of me.

Have a suggestion or link to toss my way? Drop in a comment or E-mail it to me.

Firefox Got Your Back

I Got Your Back!No, I’m not talking browser ghetto slang, I am talking about the new project I found out about on Spread Firefox. It is a pretty neat concept. Here is how they put it, as I am afraid my explanation of it might confuse some.

Our page is set-up so that users can come and ‘fill in’ the Firefox logo by claiming a pixel. They can use their spot on the logo to express themselves and to shoutout to the world about anyone who has got their back.

Join in on the fun! I’d like nothing more than to bring these people a few more pixels in. Also see if you can find me (I’m the guy with the coconut and hammer) – and include as the guy that “told you” about Firefox. Just type in Mitch.

Automatic Photo Slideshow

When viewing photos or pictures Online, there has to be a better way to do it. I don’t want to have to scroll down the page looking at thumbnails.

That is so 2001! There has to be a more efficient way of getting this simple job done.

There is and it’s name is AutoSlideshow. The AutoSlideshow extension for Firefox allows you to view graphics on a Web page in a little “photo player”. Here is what the author of the extension has to say about it.

AutoSlideshow allows you to view slideshows of images of web pages or images linked to from web pages. This is mainly useful for viewing images of a page with no possibility for image browsing.

Auto Slideshow

Right now it has special support for: wikipedia, google, yahoo, facebook.com and studivz.net. As time goes by I could see a lot of areas where this simple extension could expand and get even better.

Floating Link Preview

I like any tool that can help me see where I am going. You wouldn’t walk into a haunted house without a flash light, right? Well, think of the Internet as your haunted house, and Floating Link Preview as your flash light. This Greasemonkey script gives you a nice thumbnail image whenever you hover over any link to let you know what is behind that link.

Book Of Mozilla Easter Egg

Easter eggs hidden away inside of programs is nothing new. What I didn’t know till this morning was that even Firefox has a few tricks up it’s sleeves.

It was a lot of fun to read but one thing that really struck me as interesting was this about:mozilla “Easter Egg” that they mention. The Book of Mozilla has been something that even the first version of Netscape has had in it. You can pull it up in Firefox/Netscape by typing in about:mozilla into the Address Bar and pressing Enter.

Firefox in the Stars

Now I am not a big fan of posts for the sake of posting, but this photo just seemed a little too weird. I had to spread the word about it. The picture is of a nebula recently discovered in deep space around the time that Firefox 0.8 was released. It looks like the Firefox logo.

Then again, if you look at anything long enough, it will look like the Firefox logo. I could have sworn I saw it this morning in my cereal too!

More Firefox 2 Coverage and Pics

Is Firefox 2.0 a slam dunk? Well, the folks at eWeek don’t think so. I am still happy with how things look, and so are the folks at Lifehacker. Go check out Lifehacker for some more pictures of the guts and soul of the newest edition of browser in question. I think we are reaching the point where some folks in the media Online almost want Firefox to fail. I guess they think we can’t let our idols get too powerful.
