Firefoxies – Model Search

Ever wanted to known to the public for the love of your browser? Over at Firefoxies, they are trying to find a spokesmodel. The submission that gets the most votes will win the spot, pretty easy right? Here is what to do.

1. Send them a photo (less than 2 megs). It would be great if it had something to do with a computer or using Firefox. (download Firefox – it’s free)
2. Include a nickname
3. A quick blurb on why you use Firefox (optional)
4. Check out the site www.firefoxies.com in a few days and have your friend vote for you!
5. They will post your picture for voting within the next few days. The site will be up and live with a potential for a lot of traffic. Get seen!

This should be interesting to watch over the next few weeks.

Cooliris – Google Search Previews

Ever wanted to know what was under those search result links in Google? With Cooliris, all you need to do is hover your mouse over the link and you get a preview of where it leads. This Firefox extension also works with Google image searches as well. Think of this as a sneak peek before you click.

New Google Toolbar

Do you want to “take the power of Google” with you? Google’s Firefox toolbar now comes with a some neat new features. These features include: an enhanced search box, feed subscription management, set Gmail as your default E-mail client, and Google Safe Browsing. It has been a while since I ran the Google toolbar, but this one might be worth trying out.

FirefoxFacts.com Search Plugin

I had a little free time to spare today, so I thought I would write up a search plugin for FirefoxFacts.com. It is really easy to drag and drop search engine plugins into Firefox, but just in case anybody doesn’t know, I’ll walk through it with you.

1. Unzip the FFSearchPlugin.zip to your desktop

2. Navigate to your “searchplugins” folder (Usually found in Program Files > Mozilla Firefox > searchplugins)

3. Drag and drop firefoxfacts.src and firefoxfacts.gif into the searchplugins folder

4. Restart Firefox, and have fun searching FirefoxFacts.com!

There might not be too much to search through just yet, but in the future this should become a very helpful resource.
