Hope you had a good Thanksgiving holidays if you are in the US. We sure did. We had a great time with a bunch of friends and a lot of good food.
Let’s look at a few Firefox extensions I came across since my last post.
- FireStatus: You can update your status messages in Twitter, Facebook & FriendFeed rigth from Firefox with this extension. Also displays status updates from these services in notification popups.
- UrlBarExt: Extends your Firefox Location bar to do other things such as : Make Tiny URL, Copy URL, Search site, Go up, Tag pages, Navigate sequential url’s, unblock filtered websites, surf anonymously, etc.
- autoHideStatusbar: Hides the status bar when you are not hovering over it to give you added real estate. You can also set it to show on page load, when hovering on links, or via a icon in the tool bar. [experimental add-on]
- Flash Game Maximizer: A god-send for any flash game addict. With this extension, you can resize any Flash content to full window size. You can even play your favorite Flash game in full-screen mode. [experimental add-on]
- Lazarus Form Recovery: If you enter and submit a lot of forms everyday, you probably get annouyed when a form fails and you end up typing everything again. This extension saves everything you type and lets you restore all form data in one click should teh form crash on hitting the submit button. Could be a lifesaver for a few of us.
- Screen grab to WordPress!: A must-have for WordPress bloggers. It let’s you taek screenshots of any web page and upload it to your WordPress blog. Options include whole page, visible area or custom area and save as a local image or publish it to a WordPress blog.[experimental add-on]
I am looking forward to the final release of Firefox 3.1 beta 2 that will be released sometime this week.
Theme of the Week
This theme is for those who like the iTunes software look. iTunes Firefox theme trys to mimic just that look and it does a decent job at it.
