I just learned about AllPeers – another Firefox extension. This lets you create a list of contacts who you can then share files, webpages, photos, and any other files you have on your computer – or you find on the web. My husband and I are installing it so that we can play – but the tour looked pretty nifty.
Are you reading Download Squad? If you’re not, you’re missing out on all kinds of neat tools.
I just read about – a Firefox Extension that changes your cursor based on the type of link you’re about to click. So if you’re about to click a PDF link it will add the PDF icon to your cursor.
I have made edits to the CSS here on this blog so that you can see what type of link you’re about to follow – but since most of you are probably reading through your aggregator this extension might be a handy addition to your browser.
I just stumbled upon a list (it’s a bit old) of the 50 Best Firefox Extensions for Power Surfing – I haven’t finished the list but I have already found 4 or 5 new extensions that I want – so I wanted to share the list with you in case you missed it the first time around.

For those of you web designers with Windows (sorry MAC users) this is a new tool that I just learned about that will make your life easier. As you know you have to design for the popular browser resolutions – but if you’re like me you have your resolution set as high as it will go – so this requires a plugin or a script like interactivetools.com, which is what I’ve been using for the last year or so. But today Lifehacker pointed me to something so much better! It’s called Sizer and it’s a windows file that makes it so that you can resize any window to one of three sizes with the click of the mouse.from

I know the title is What I Learned Today… but there is something I’d like to learn. How do you get Firefox to notice that there is an RSS feed available on a page? I see the icon show in my address bar for some sites – but not for the library’s site – even though we have a feed.
