Ah, the good old Firefox extensions. Let’s see what kind of extensions I have been able bring to you in this week’s picks.
- No-NSFW: Ever accidentally click a link just to see a Not Safe For Work picture with blinking banners around it? This extension is set to help warn you if you are about to view a page not safe for work or all ages. You can help other folks by voting on an unrated page as you come across it.
- Unplug: Unplug creates links to flash videos, pictures, videos in a separate page so you can easily download the ones you want. It is similar to Download Helper extension and looks pretty good.
- AutoSlideshow: I have been a long time fan and user of the famous PicLens Firefox extension for viewing pictures from Flickr. Another worthy mention is this AutoSlideshow extension, that creates slide shows from various sources on the Internet like Flickr, Google Image, Facebook, 23hq.com, sxc.hu, wikipedia, yahoo images, etc.
- Auto Shutdown: Are you the kind of person who religiously shutdown your computer every night? What is you were downloading something that’s going to run past your bed time? Or if you were leaving town but you really don’t want to cancel that big download? This extension let’s you shutdown your computer automatically as soon as the downloads are complete.
- ReminderFox: This is an extension that brings me warm memories as I had used it in my new to Firefox times. Before I started using an online to-do-list like Remember the Milk. Very useful for managing date based tasks, birthdays or anniversaries. Perfect for thos whoe don’t need a full-blown calendaring application.
- ScribeFire: Not a new one again but one that has seen some cool improvements. This full featured in-browser blog editor has added support for Flickr images, YouTube videos and improved social network sharing capabilities. Posting to major blog platforms are supported.
Hope you enjoyed this week’s picks and if you’d like to see my past picks, check out any of the links in this series listed below. I am sure you’ll find something that you can use.
I would like to apologize to my readers for my light posting this month. I have been completely swamped with personal work with my parents visiting us this summer. They will be here this Friday and we are so excited as it’ll be their first visit abroad.
Also, I would like to extend my welcome to you, if you have recently made ShanKri-la part of your read. It would just make my day if you dropped by to say hello. Plus, watch out for some cool webapp reviews coming up shortly.
