WebMynd for Google

WebMynd What is WebMynd?  It is all about personalizing your search – with colors.  Ok, now before you think this is some new age hippy thing, hear me out.  This add-on for Firefox will help find and keep track of information from a number of different sources.

What sources does it support?  We have:  YouTube, Wikipedia, Flickr, Twitter, Amazon, Economist, CNN, LinkedIn, TechCrunch, Hacker News, Digg, Reddit, Google Books, Fluther, Delicious, Yahoo! Shopping, Scribd, Backtype, and Youlicit.

The easiest way to explain WebMynd is that it makes Google better by personalizing it with information and resources that you value.

Here is a little more about how it works from the developers:

After installing the WebMynd plug-in just search and browse the web as you would regularly.

When you search on Google, WebMynd will add results from your own browsing history and the top sites that you visit. And you can configure it to search many of your favourite sources such as Twitter, Wikipedia and Flickr amongst many others. If you use Twitter, you can ask your Twitter network for help while searching, right from Google.

When you are using WebMynd to record your history, a copy of the sites you visit is kept on your computer’s hard drive and the text is sent to our servers so we can index the information to make it easier for you to retrieve later. You can turn WebMynd on and off with a single click and you can set it to never record particular sites, you have 100% control.

Here it is in action:

WebMynd currently supports Firefox 3 on Windows, Mac and Linux.  You can pick up the Firefox extension via the Firefox Add-ons site or WebMynd.com.

DejaClick – Manage Repetitive Tasks

Record Your BrowserDoing the same thing over and over again sucks. Being repetitive sucks. If the Web is all about making my life better, why do I have to keep doing the same things over and over again? DejaClick, an extension for Firefox, looks to end my repetitive ways.

Here is a little more about the extension from the developers:

DejaClick is a web recorder and Super Bookmark utility designed exclusively for Firefox. You can record and bookmark your browser activities, then with a single click, replay the entire sequence all over again.

Now where does this come in handy? Well think of the tasks on the Web that you must do where you have to click through several links to get to the spot you need. DejaClick can record your browser’s actions and replay them as many times as you need.

Some of the other features include:

  • One-button recording and bookmarking
  • Toolbar with full record/replay controls
  • Sidebar with replay results and property editing
  • Statusbar with record/replay status information
  • Action and Event keyword validation
  • Optional AlertSite Business Transaction Monitor integration

So if your wanting to cut down on your clicks and let the browser do some of the work for you – this is definitely a neat extension to at least try, to see if it will do the job for you… literally!

Record Your Firefox Tasks

Do you find yourself doing the same thing over and over again? Do you always have something to say in a certain place, or would you like to test Firefox by setting it to do a number of tasks automatically? If any of this sounds interesting, go and get Selenium IDE.

Selenium IDE is an integrated development environment for Selenium tests. It is implemented as a Firefox extension, and allows you to record, edit, and debug tests. Selenium IDE includes the entire Selenium Core, allowing you to easily and quickly record and play back tests in the actual environment that they will run.

With that said, I also found a helpful tutorial on how to set up automated tasks with this extension as well.
