Get More BBC Goodness

I like some of the television the British Broadcasting Company puts out there but I have not really gotten myself in a trend of checking out their Web site that often. When I do remember to do it though, I have seen that the BBC is an interesting source for news and information from the other side of the pond. To help my remember how useful it can be, I downloaded and installed the BBC bar.

Find Toolbar Tweaks

One of my favorite features inside of Firefox is the find toolbar. Just by hitting Ctrl and F at the same time unlocks an ability to find anything one a Web page no matter where it might try to hide. Sure, other browsers have done the find bar before, but none are as good in my opinion.

Swiss Knife Toolbar

Don’t you love how swiss knives seem to have a tool for every occasion? Well the WebSwissKnifeToolBar is a Greasemonkey script that does the same for your browser.

Brought to my attention by its creator, this user script adds a lot of functionality to Firefox. Here are just a few things it can do.

  • Easy an fast search for: Google, YouTube videos, and Wikipedia (Spanish and English)
  • Translator English<->Spanish, with just a click
  • Spanish dictionary (RAE), with just a click
  • Convert a long URL to a tiny URL, with just a click
  • Put and save sticky notes on the Web

You can install the Greasemonkey script here or check out the blog for more information on it.

Another MySpace Toolbar

Yes, even I have a profile on MySpace! The question is who doesn’t these days? If you want to be able to have a little more usability built into Firefox while browsing the MySpace Web site, this is the extension made for you.

Googlebar Lite

Everybody loves the Google Toolbar, right? Well not everybody. I will admit I used to use it back when it first came out, but now it just feels a little bloated. I would still like to use some of the Google features, but I don’t want the official toolbar. What am I to do? Googlebar Lite offers you the great taste of the Google toolbar, but is less filling.

diggbar Toolbar

I have been a big fan of digg.com for a long time, so I was happy to see this extension. The diggbar Toolbar extension for Firefox gives you a new way to navigate through digg’s interface. You can search the entire Web site. You can submit a story with one click. It also adds a few RSS feeds for the top digg stories. If you are a fan of digg, then you must “dig” this extension.
