Some of us do a lot of content sharing via Facebook. You like to share news, links and interesting stuff with your friends and family members via Facebook too, right? If so – you might want to check out the new LikeJournal add-on for Firefox. This add-on (plus website service) will create a searchable database of all the links you like via the Facebook like button.

Looking to make Amazon a little better? Look no further, because I have found the perfect Greasemonkey user script for you to use.
Better Amazon promises to make your Amazon shopping even better in a number of ways. If you shop on Amazon a lot, this is a great companion to the browser.
For years now, I have been highlighting the best Firefox add-ons out there for you all to check out and use, if needed. However, not often do I go that extra mile to help you replace an add-on that I don’t think is that handy to have. Amazingly enough, ImTranslator is an add-on that have enjoyed a lot of popularity (3,875,310 downloads to be exact) however I think there is a better solution out there, that doesn’t even need an add-on for Firefox to be used.
Using what they call cutting-edge artificial intelligence, the Pluribo add-on of Firefox promises to deliver you instant summaries of any Amazon.com web page you are viewing on the Web. Why read the entire review, when you can get the proverbial cliff notes this way?
How does Pluribo: Instant Summeries work?
Well, essentially Pluribo does exactly what you’d do if you had the time: it reads every word, learns what people liked and disliked, and then figures out the key lessons. But, unlike a person, Pluribo does this automatically. So it can fetch you the bottom line at light speed– freeing up your day to enjoy the finer things in life.
This plugin shows a lot of promise. I too, like many of you, do a lot of shopping on Amazon and most of the review are usually pretty handy to have when it comes to comparing products. Of course you take it with a grain of salt, but there is no doubt that it helps and this add-on just speeds up that process of skimming over reviews.
Pluribo: Instant Summaries shows a lot of promise, but I would like to see the tool work on more than just Amazon. I want to see it work everywhere!
Need another eBay helper? Feedbackfox helps you find out a little more information about that guy who owns the Gumby blow up doll that you have been searching for since your childhood.
A sidebar integrated feedback filter for ebay users. Input a user name and get a colored list with up to 5000 feedback comments (by enter button ‘GO!’) or alternatively get only the positive, neutral, negative or withdrawn feedback. In this case Feedbackfox gets all comments that are available for the last 12 months.
The folks over at Download Squad have a nice little write up about Reminder Fox, the scheduler and to do list extension for Firefox.
I like what they had to say so much – I figured it wouldn’t hurt to share some of it here.
I’m somewhat of a productivity zealot and I love any application that helps me stay on task. Reminder Fox is designed to do just that. One of the better Firefox extensions I’ve found, Reminder Fox sits quietly in the bottom left corner of the browser and lets you manage a to do list and schedule reminders.
Firefox 2 RC2 has only been out a little while, and it seems like the reviews are so far all positive. The only disappointment I have seen across the board is the way it handles RSS feeds, but hey – I am sure they will get better with time. If not, that is the beauty of Firefox, somebody can write an extension to fix it if they don’t like it. With that said, I figured you would all enjoy taking a look at the side by side comparisons arstechnica did of RC1 and RC2 of Firefox 2.
The browser wars are getting better and better each and every day. It seems like all of the big three (Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer) keep trying to out perform the next one. Now we have seen dozens of reviews looking at all three. This time around though I want to point you to an article on Firefox 1.5 versus Opera 9. The author makes a lot of valid points, and there is a lot of good non-bias information within.
