Firefox Extensions: Picks of the Week 08-10-03

So, the much awaited Biden-Pail debate is over and the news analysts are tearing it apart to see who got the lead after it. And thankfully the Google Chrome fever seems to be over too. Let’s show our beloved Firefox some love with this week’s edition.

  • WiseStamp: The name gives away nothing. But, this little extension brings HTML signatures to your all your web-based email accounts. We have been smitten by Gmail HTML signatures add-on Black Canvas beofre but this goes one step further. It supports Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail & AOL mail. You can create signatures in a rich HTML editor as well as create links to your favorite social networks. Try them both to see what fits your needs.
  • Omnibar:  If you haven’t tried Google Chrome yet and don’t care about it, you can move on to the next extension in the list. This extension mimics the Omnibar in Google Chrome by merging the search box in the location bar. It still can’t show the search results in Omnibar but it’s close.
  • FlickrSender: if you are Flickr user, you will love this. You can just right click on any image in the web and send to Flickr in just 3 clicks. You have to be logged in to Flickr ro use this. [experimental add-on]
  • TwitBin: It’s a Twitter sidebar extension and works nicely. You can send and receive tweets right from your browser and still continue to browse as usual. You can follow me on Twitter too.
  • GTalk Sidebar: I have shown how you can GTalk gadget in your browser sidebar by using a specific url. But, if you don’t want to go through all that, you can simply install this add-on and get done with it. Use Alt+G to open/close it. Need Flash installed in your browser.
  • Flixo: This extension is for the developers who love working with API’s. Netflix recently opened up it’s API to developers and now you can interact with it using this extensions. You can automatically OAuth signs requests to API requests and it prompts for parameter values in resource GET requests.

I have been featuring Firefox extensions all along but haven’t shared any themes with you. That’s gonna change and here’s the first one.

Firefox Theme of the Week

Heaven Cube: It is a dark modern theme and you will love it if you have a similar dark theme for your OS as well. Here’s what mine looks like.

    I didn’t know that Netflix opened up its API. That should be great news for us Netflix lovers!

    TwitBin is a great extension and saves a lot time. Hopefully this one lasts. I love my Facebook extension which basically does the same thing.

    Thanks for letting me know about TwitBin. I’ve become a Twitter nut recently and this is a godsend.

    An example such as Flickrsender is quite appealing to a Flickr user as it saves time. It would appear that a majority of Firefox extensions are about saving time that would have been spent performing a repeated activity.

    Man you don’t even know how long I’ve waited for this since disabling my own Movable Type widget (that doesn’t work since Haloscan bypasses that code).

    WiseStamp is frickin awesome. I stumbled across it about a week ago and I’ve been using it for every email. The signatures it generates are sleek…
