Grid Preview in Chrome

A while back I wrote about my dream RSS feed reader. This plugin does nothing to get me there, but it’s kind of cool so I figured I should share it with you all (in case it gets you closer to your dream reader). This from Lifehacker: Google Reader is still one of the best ways to get through your mass of blogs, but it’s never been the prettiest way  [ Read More ]

Delete individual autofill entries

Today I did some clean up of my data on my computer. I created some groups in LastPass and did some site title clean up. I also did some research on how to get rid of autofill entries that aren’t right or got added without me realizing. I found this handy article on Lifehacker on doing just this. For example, I visit TripIt a least once a week and one  [ Read More ]

Find Plugins Used on a Site

I wrote a little while back about a plugin for Chrome that lets you find out what WordPress theme a site is using, now I have one to find plugins! Thanks to WordPress Jedi for pointing out SpyBar for Chrome and Firefox. It helps you find out what WordPress plugins and themes a site is using. Once you install SpyBar, you will be able to analyze websites and find each  [ Read More ]

What’s that theme?

Have you ever visited a website and wondered what theme was being used? I have! And now there is a way using Chrome to sniff out the WordPress theme being used by a site you’re looking at. Chrome Theme Sniffer is a add-on for Chrome that will detect the theme or template being used on current site for several major open source CMS’s, including Drupal, Joomla and WordPress.

Browser Security Articles

In the news recently were a series of articles about the Pawn2Own hacking contest. The results of the contest were not surprising to me, with Internet Explorer and Safari falling to security hackers in the first day and Chrome and Firefox standing strong. This lead me to put together a series of articles and web pages on browser security to share with those of you who have libraries that are  [ Read More ]

FF More Popular Than IE7 – Woo Hoo!

This news from Download Squad makes me very happy We’ve all been watching the browser share trends for quite some time now, wondering when the day would come that an alternative finally shoved Internet Explorer off its perch. It’s finally happened – at least when we’re talking about the most popular single version of a browser. You can see it all in the bar graph above: Firefox 3.5 has dethroned  [ Read More ]

Firefox Add-On Collections

I vaguely remember seeing mention of Firefox adding collections a while back, but I didn’t pay it much notice. Today I was doing my research on Firefox and saw what a collection really is! Firefox collections are lists of add-ons put together by Firefox users! I did a search for library to see what librarians were recommending as Firefox add-ons and found a bunch I hadn’t heard of before. What  [ Read More ]

New Gmail Feature – Merge Contacts

I just read about this great new feature for Gmail that lets you select multiple contacts and merge them into one – I could really use this to clean up my contacts – but for some reason I can’t get my contacts page to load in Firefox. Whenever I click on Contacts I get this popup. I can’t get it to go away – it keeps coming back so I  [ Read More ]

Ads in Firefox

I always tell people that if they have Firefox (and they should) they need to install AdBlock Plus. Today I learned about Add-Art: Add-Art is a free FireFox add-on which replaces advertising on websites with curated art images. The art shows are updated every two weeks and feature contemporary artists and curators. Neat – but if I get to choose between removing ads or replacing them with other images –  [ Read More ]

ALA Recommends IE?

I just read my latest issue of American Libraries Online Direct and found out that the ALA MidWinter Meeting Itinerary Planner and Messaging System is now up and ready for use. Only one problem … apparently this site is best viewed in Internet Explorer. No librarians that I know use Internet Explorer … not unless they’re forced to by their IT staff … so why the heck isn’t this page  [ Read More ]
