Mozilla Social Network?

If the Web can be a more social experience, then why shouldn’t the Web browser follow?

Enter “The Coop”, a Mozilla Labs project to experiment with adding social tools to the web browser. We want to create a fun and easy way to share links with your friends, and to browse the set of links that friends have shared with you. We also want to make it easy to “subscribe” to a friend in order to make it easy to keep track of the pictures, movies, blog posts and status information that they might be posting on a variety of services.

The Coop sounds pretty interesting and might just be that next big step in the social Web experience.

Firefox Facts on MyBlogLog

Want to help me out with a social experiment?

Go add yourself as a reader (or in their terms, “member”) of Firefox Facts via MyBlogLog. I have been seeing this pop up on all my favorite Web sites, so I thought I would jump in on the fun and see who comes up as a reader here.

If nobody interacts, it will probably be gone soon – but if I see a lot of members coming up then I might have to keep it around. I’d like to see who reads Firefox Facts and see what other Web sites you find interesting.

Also feel free to add me as a friend as well.

Add Favicons to Del.icio.us

I have just recently given del.icio.us a second shot.

After being kind of disappointed the first time around, I do have to say that I am becoming a little more hooked on the idea now. The whole process is easier, but there was just something missing from the interface.

I needed favicons on these links!

Well, I had a look around and I hunted down a Greasemonkey script that did the job. This script, fav.icio.us2, does one simple job and it does it well. It adds favicons to all the links you see that have been saved to del.icio.us.

Now all I need is more time to save all my favorite links.

Simpy

There are dozen and one different places that act as a place to store your bookmarks. There is nothing new here. Depending on the ones you like, Simpy might be the choice for you. If it is, I have a Firefox extension I know you are going to love.

Folkd and Firefox

Yes I have yet another social news and information service for you. Before you roll your eyes and head on though, give me a few more seconds of your time. This new service from folkd.com is finally one that doesn’t seem like a direct ripoff of Digg.com.

Unofficial Myspace Toolbar

Social networking is what the world is all about these days. If you launch anything that doesn’t have a social networking aspect to it, you are so back in 1999. Myspace.com is one of the industry leaders in the social networking revolution. With that said, wouldn’t you like a Firefox extension that would help you use Myspace.com a little better?

New Digg, Old Style

Are you upset with the way Digg looks now at version 3? Well, with a little scripting and some CSS skills you can roll yourself back to a more pleasing version. Personally I like the new look, but I have seen others that do not. Here is the fix for your problem.

Digg This! Firefox Extension

Due to how popular Digg is, you would think there would be more Firefox extensions related to it. I just have not seen too many become too popular. The Digg This! Firefox extension hopes to change all that.

The Digg This! toolbar adds two buttons to your main Firefox toolbar and one menu. With the toolbar buttons you can quickly goto to Digg or Digg the page you are viewing. The menu allows you to goto your Digg profile or any of the top Digg categories.

If you do a lot of digging, then this extension is right for you.
