I was just reading on Blog on the Side that Firefox 2 is due on in October – a fact I must have missed along the way. In her post she links to an article in Business Week about what Firefox will have to do to keep its market share up. I love the fact that Firefox has 10% of the market which is more than Opera or Safari – [ Read More ]
Has anyone else out there been having problems is version 184.108.40.206 of Firefox? I have noticed that it is crashing an aweful lot lately and it’s starting to get annoying – thank goodness for whatever extension I have (I can’t seem to figure out which one it is) that is remembering my sessions.
Sometimes I find myself taking a screenshot and cropping the image just to find out how much space I have to work with – this is just silly! Download Squad has just pointed me to a new resource – Pixel Ruler. Know the exact size and position of any element with this screen ruler. Pixel Ruler features horizontal and vertical orientation, dynamic mouse measurement tracking in pixels, cool design. It’s [ Read More ]
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.

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 [ Read More ]
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. [update] I just saw that this thread is constantly updated – so it’s [ Read More ]
I just read on LibrarianInBlack about a list of Extentions specifically for Web programmers. I have some of them, but I did find some new tools. The one I was most excited about was Screen Grab, but its not compatible with the newest version of Firefox, so I’ll have to wait.
Okay, so I’ve read all over about Firefox 1.5 and I went to download it (a while ago) only to find out it wasn’t an official release … so I decided to wait. Today I went back to the Firefox site and what do I see? Version 1.5 available for download!! How come my browser didn’t give me the “New Updates” message? Oh well, who cares – I’m off to [ Read More ]
