Until now, every Firefox add-on that promises to give me awesome abilities to look things up when I highlight a word have been mediocre at best. The Apture Highlights add-on for Firefox really is a game changer. It allows you to highlight a phrase and get background information from Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter and more – on the same page. It also gives me this ability without looking tacky or sticking out like a sore thumb.

I have made no secret about the fact that the one feature I am looking most forward to in Firefox 4 is the new Firefox Panorama tool (formerly known as Tab Candy).

Your web browser history is something you should be able to take around with you, no matter the browser you use. Unfortunately it is not in any browser’s best interest to talk to each other, so you must rely on a third party to get the job done. Infoaxe does the trick.

Tired of having to take the “long way” when it comes to finding the images you want to see via a Google search result? View Google Images Full is a simple Greasemonkey userscript that will help.
