Mozilla has gone out and adopted two female Firefox cubs that make their home in the Knoxville Zoo. These red pandas (and newest Tennessee natives) are the two newest members of the Mozilla community. Now, you can watch these two Firefoxes play, frolic and be cute over at Firefox Live. Over the net few months, they will be streaming the red pandas live and around the clock.
Some websites, like Hulu for example, give you the ability to dim everything in the background on a page so that you can focus on the video you are watching. What if you could do that on every website? That is what the add-on for Firefox, Turn Off the Lights, brings to the browser.
Want to be able to download some of the best HD 1080p videos from across the internet, but missing that Firefox add-on that promises to get it all done in a simple way? KeepTube is the video downloading extension you might want to take a look at.
Are you in need of a screen recording device but don’t want to bother installing a bunch of extra applications or services just to get the job done? Capture Fox is the add-on for Firefox you need to pick up.
Think that Firefox’s internal download manager might need a few more bells and whistles? Then you really need to check out FlashGot. This Firefox extension will let you download all the links, movies and audio clips on a web page with just one simple click of the mouse.
It is known as one of the most popular, lightweight and reliable external download managers out there. The real benefit with the FlashGot add-on is being able to download multiple files from multiple links at the same time, all at once.
Now, I know what you are going to tell me before you even say it.
“Mitch, there are already a million and one video downloaders out there, why review another one?”
Number one, you are right – there are way too many. So what makes the 1-Click YouTube Video Download any different? It cuts out the useless junk, and gets right to the meat and potatoes.
Since Facebook is the king of the hill when it comes to social networks, there have been a lot of add-ons dedicated to making it better. Facebook is great, but is not without flaws. Thankfully, these Firefox add-on developers have worked out some of the kinks and have masterminded some of the best add-ons for Firefox to date.
Here are my top five Facebook add-ons you can add to Firefox.
Happy birthday wishes and big congratulations go out today to Firefox. Did you realize that Firefox is five years old? Some people are having a hard time thinking five years passed by so quickly, while others feel like it has been around even longer than that.
Here’s a great video that does a good job at telling the story of Firefox, from then to now:
The peeps over at Lifehacker have also written up a great retrospective that is well worth checking out. What birthday wishes would you like to send to the Mozilla team? Without Firefox, there would be no Firefox Facts – so as I enjoy three years of this blog, I’d like to thank Mozilla for the inspiration and all of you for reading it every day and making it one of the most popular un-official Firefox blogs out there today.
So happy birthday to Firefox, one of the best browsers out there on the planet.
