Thanks Jill for letting me know about this Add On for Firefox. TinyUrl brings the http://tinyurl.com functionality into your browser. It takes a long URL as input, and gives you a short URL to use in it’s place. Installed! Technorati Tags: tinyurl, firefox

So, I read on TechCrunch and Lifehacker about Windows Live Community Builder and I want to poke around a bit (because I’m trying not to be prejudiced) – but the link takes me to a very minimal looking page. I tried a few different links and then thought … hmmm … this is Microsoft, I wonder if it will work in IE – and low and behold it does. How [ Read More ]
I just learned about Todoist – an online task manager. Nothing fancy there, but Lifehacker also points me to a Firefox extension that will allow me to integrate Todoist into Gmail. That would work if I actually used the Gmail page – what I’d like to see is a to do list integrated into Google Calendar – when is that coming?? Technorati Tags: todoist, gmail, firefox
Thanks Paul for pointing out that you can run Meebo as a Firefox sidebar. Neat!
As anyone who’s done a presentation on Firefox knows – it’s always been pretty hard to create a list of your favorite extensions. Enter Extension List Dumper. This little add-on lets you dump your list of extensions and format it based on several options. Here’s my list: Application: Firefox 126.96.36.199 (2006120418) Operating System: WINNT (x86-msvc) Adblock Plus 0.7.2.4 BugMeNot 1.3 Cite Bite 0.0.3 Colorful Tabs 1.9 ColorZilla 1.0 del.icio.us 1.2 [ Read More ]
I seemed to have lost the function in FireFox that makes it so that when FireFox restarts itself it keeps all of the tabs open. I’m sure it’s because of an add-on that I’ve installed – I’m just not sure when it happened and which add-on is the culprit. Any ideas?
How can you ever user 200 Firefox extensions? And what resolution do you need your computer set at to actually see a web page in a browser with that many toolbars?
So I head over to the Apple Store (online) to drool over the iPods I can’t afford and what happens? The CSS doesn’t load up for the page so I have a full text version – actually it looks like a mobile version of the page. It’s very difficult to navigate and there are no images anywhere – so I thought – maybe I should try this in IE (I [ Read More ]
That’s how Downloadsquad explains the newest add-on in my Firefox toolbox – How’d I Get Here: This is an innocuous little add-on that does one thing only: Tells you how you originally found the site you’re looking at. It has an elephant’s memory, so even if you bookmark the site and come back to it six weeks later, it will still be able to send you back to where you [ Read More ]
At work I use IE – mostly because our library site was designed pre-Firefox and doesn’t looks so great in Firefox (redesign coming – 2007). One of things I miss when using IE at work is the handy Firefox inline search feature – well thanks to Lifehacker I have found a solution. Inline Search for IE makes it so that you can use Find in Page with a similar interface [ Read More ]
