Folks, sorry for the site being down since this morning! We exceeded our bandwidth due to our iPhone blog getting very popular this month! We are now back in business..
It’s been a while since we looked at some cool new Firefox extensions. However, I did completely revamp the Top Firefox Extensions listing I maintain and added some much needed new categories so it makes it easier to find the extensions you need.
Let’s look at some more new extensions:
- FoxTab: FoxTab is a Windows only extension that makes switching tabs via Alt+Tab a visual treat. If you are used to Apple’s coverflow or PicLens picture views, TabFlow will be right up your alley. You can choose from one of 5 different layouts for tabs.
It is an experimental add-on, so you will need a login at AMO to download it. Plus, a version for Ubuntu and Mac OSX is coming soon.
- BugMeNot: BugMeNot is an awesome service for those websites that require you to register to see their content. BugMeNot has hundreds and thousands of usernames and passwords for those sites you don’t want to register. This extension makes it even easier to get those. Just right click on username and password field to get those. Sorry, no porn sites!
- Email This!: You have probably used the Gmail This! browser bookmarklet or other bookmarklets we have reviewed. Email This Bokmarklet Extension brings this feature not just to Gmail but to plenty of other email services such as Google Apps Gmail, Yahoo and even apps like Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc.
- Find In Tabs: Search text across all your tabs with this extension. Clicking on the search result will take you to the tab with the search text in it. Very useful for those like me with dozens of open tabs.
- Google Preview: Shows thumbnails of websites in the search results in your Google and Yahoo searches. This add-on can be very helpful in identifying a search result if you are looking for a website you have been to before.
- TinyUrl Creator: I have used the TinyUrl bookmarklet to create TinyUrls but now this extension makes it even more easier to create short easy to share urls.
Firefox 3.0.2 Released
If you are on Windows, you might already have been prompted to update to Firefox 3.0.2. But, looks like Firefox 3.0.3 will be out hot on the heels of 3.0.2 fixing a bug.
Have a great weekend everyone!
