Wow, that sounds a lot dirtier than I thought it would.
Anyway, SEB regular ***Dave has an entry up about his favorite Firefox extensions that is worth reading if, like me, you’ve not bothered to make much use of that particular aspect of the browser.
One of the cooler aspects of the Firefox and Mozilla browsers is the ability to add more functionality via the extensions, but the only one I’ve made a habit of installing has been the excellent Spellbound spell checker (which is also on ***Dave’s list). I keep meaning to sit down and play around with a few of the other extensions out there, but just never seem to get around to it so seeing what other folks are making use of is always enlightening and useful. Out of the list on ***Dave’s site I’ve already installed the ForecastFox extension that puts a little icon on the status bar showing the current and future weather as reported by the Weather Channel folks and the BugMeNot extension that makes use of the service provided by BugMeNot to login to news sites that require “free registration” before they’ll let you read their news articles. ***Dave lists quite a few handy extensions so if you’ve been thinking of trying some out and could use a suggestion or two then go check it out.
