Have the need to rotate your tabs? No, I do not mean to turn them upside down. Tab Rotator, an add-on for Firefox, will automatically switch between the open tabs in your browser after a certain amount of time.
Want to be able to track your productivity?
RescueTime, an add-on for Firefox will give you tons of analytical data on how, when and why you browse so you can do exactly that.
Telling you what time it is seems like a trivial task for any modern browser, however many leave the job to your operating system.
However, if you have hidden your clocks and need a way to tell what time it is from Firefox, Statusbar Date is the perfect add-on for the job.
Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. The FoxClocks add-on for Firefox allows you keep an eye on the time around the world – or just your local time – by putting small clocks in your statusbar.
This has been one of Mozilla’s favorite featured extensions for some time, due to the fact that well… people like to know what time it is?
Here is a little more about FoxClocks from the developer:
You can set each clock’s colour, or even have a clock change colour during certain hours (perhaps green when it’s a good time to Skype your friends in Japan). Too much stuff in your statusbar? Move your clocks to a toolbar, or switch to ‘icon’ mode and hover over the FoxClocks icon to see your clocks. FoxClocks’ Zone Picker tree lets you browse virtually all the world’s time zones by country, region or city. Enable automatic database updates and you’ll always have the right time.
One more neat feature of FoxClocks is if you have Google Earth installed, you can right click on a region’s clock and it will take you right there. A simple addon to add a clock, or for travelers – to keep track of many clocks. If this is an itch you have to scratch, you can now do so with Firefox.
Right now I use my “downloads” folder as a catch all for all the things (audio, video, pictures and more) that I download from the Web. From there I sort it out to where it needs to go. If you want to add a few more favorite locations to save to from Firefox you can do so with the FavLoc addon.
FavLoc (short for favorite location) will let you set certain folders as favorite locations to easily download files to. For an example, lets say you subscribed to my podcast, the Web Hosting Show and you wanted to send all the mp3s you downloaded to your special podcast folder. With this extension, you would just add your podcast folder as one of your favorite locations, then you have instant right-click and save access to it. No more downloading and then sorting it all out later.
The FavLoc menus will appear on the File menu (for saving pages), the context menu (for saving images and links), and on the download prompt. Sure there are other ways to go about this, but this one was put in place to save us all a little time.
Sitting at the keyboard for hours on end, it is really easy to get off task, get distracted and get to where you forget to check what time it is and what time you started. Thankfully the TimeTracker extension for Firefox helps you keep track of how much time you browse.
Some of the features of this awesome addition to any Firefox install include:
- Tracks browsing time across sessions
- Pauses automatically when you stop browsing
- Reset counter
- Pause toggle per window
- List ‘work’ sites that should not count
- Tooltip showing total time today, since last reset and since installing.
TimeTracker is a great way to keep tabs (not the browser kind) on yourself and the time you are spending Online. For those of us who spend our days working within the Firefox interface it also is a helpful reminder to tell us we have worked enough and we might deserve a break.
Want to raise your productivity, but can not drag yourself away from the time sucking Web sites you like to visit on the Web? Do you spend more time customizing your MySpace page than working on that pile of articles you should be writing? We have all found ourselves having our time leeched away – and now we can do something about it.
LeechBlock helps you gain control back by allowing you to block certain Web sites that suck away your day. Here is some more information from the developers of the extension.
LeechBlock is a simple productivity tool designed to block those time-wasting sites that can suck the life out of your working day. (You know: the ones that rhyme with ‘Blue Cube’, ‘Hash Pot’, ‘Sticky Media’, and the like.) All you need to do is specify which sites to block, between which time periods, and on which days of the week. You can specify up to four sets of sites to block, with different times and days for each set.
Firefox 2 is coming along really nicely. I just downloaded the RC1 yesterday, and things are looking about as good as they can get. I could see how this newest version would help people get things done a lot faster than in the past as well. Need a good example of this in action? I found one over at CMSReport.com.
Over the past few months I found that Firefox 2 is a browser that has change my browsing style and it will likely do the same for you.
Are you keeping tabs on a Web site that you are expecting to change? The ReloadEvery Firefox extension gives you the ability to set a time interval for reloading a Web site. Now you can stalk the Web site of your choice automatically. Give the reload button a rest and try this extension out!
