It looks like Firefox 3.1 is going to be delayed in it’s release until the second quarter of this year.
We still have some exciting new Firefox extensions to look at this week.
- VideoSurf Videos at a Glance: As the name implies, this extension is a great one to have for those who watch a lot of online videos. For eg. you can make HD-compatible videos to play in high quality by default.
- Moonlight: Missing out on running Microsoft’s Silverlight powered apps on Linux? Moonlight is an open source implementation of Silverlight for Unix systems.
- LinkExtend: Consolidates a slew of web site information services into a single extension – you get quick data on Pagerank, company ethics, malware checks via Web of Trust, McAfee SiteAdvisor, Google Safe Browsing, etc.
- Xmarks: The popular Foxmarks Firefox extension has been rebranded to Xmarks. The new add-on gets site suggestions, smarter search with results on top of Google search and the bookmark sync between other computers as always. (more on Foxmarks)
- Facette Delicious Connector: MITs Haystack group has come with an innovative way to view your delicious bookmarks by organizing tags in your account into facets. It also provides an enhanced version of a tagging tool.
As always, check your installed add-ons and remove the ones you haven’t used in a while. You can keep adding new and fun add-ons as well as keep your Firefox running zippy!
