How to use firefox, and LOVE it, as I do

I have long been a fan of mozilla’s firefox web browser, and with its recent popularity has come some great extensions to make it even better. I thought that i would take the time to share with the rest of the world what extensions and tweaks i use with firefox that cause me to love it as much as i do.

GET FIREFOX:
If you don’t already have firefox then you can get it here (don’t worry it is free!).

BROADBAND TWEAK:
There is broadband tweak for firefox users on cable, dsl, or faster connections that will make it load pages quicker. This is for the more advanced user, but it is very easy to do if you follow the directions. There are complete step-by-step directions posted here on hackaday.com.

EXTENSIONS:
The extension feature is what makes firefox so flexible. Extensions are .xpi files that add additional fuctionality to your browser. You can find all the available extensions here, but this is a listing of the extensions that i use:

Foxylicious – Integrate your del.icio.us bookmarks into firefox

Tabbrowser Preferences – More control over the tabbed browsing feature

Copy Links – Allows you to copy more than one URL to the clipboard

Dictionary Search – Get definitions for words on webpages

Forecast Fox – Receive weather updates on the bottom of your browser

StumbleUpon – StumbleUpon website you would never find otherwise

Googlebar – Google search bar for firefox

InfoRSS – Displays RSS feeds on the bottom of your browser

GreaseMonkey – Allows the use of users to customize websites

Platypus – Allows the editing of website, greasemonkey extension needed

Mozilla Calendar – Calendar based on the iCal standard

Download Manager Tweak – Improves upon the download manager in firefox

Customize Google – Improves googles results and gets rid of the ads, greasemonkey extension needed

Last Tab – Improves tab navigation

Book Burro – Compare prices on books, greasemonkey extension needed

Bug Me Not – Extension for bugmenot.com

Pub Sub Sidebar – Sidebar for feeds from pubsub.com

THEMES:

If you don’t like the default appearance of firefox you can download a theme. All of the available themes are listed here, personally i use the PlastikFox Crystal SVG Theme.

GREASEMONKEY:

As already stated greasemonkey is an extension that allows users to alter the look of websites. If you would like more information on the script and how it works click here. For a listing of ready-made greasemonkey scripts for popular websites visit: http://dunck.us/collab/GreaseMonkeyUserScripts

I hope this information is enough to get you excited about firefox and to STOP USING INTERNET EXPLORER!

Poking fun at the more fortunate

As a nobody there is nothing I like more than making fun of the somebodies! Celebrities leave themselves open to this by making some very odd clothing choices. My favorite site for visiting for this purpose is Go Fug Yourself. Daily, Go Fug Yourself posts pictures of somebodies in crazy crazy outfits.

Some of my favorite Fugs are:

Couldn’t have said it better myself

I belong to various tech help groups and sometimes I see the laziest people asking questions. For example today someone sent an email to my Windows Server Support Group asking how to burn a cd (yep, how to burn a freaking CD!!). In writing my smart-alecky response I came across this website: http://justfuckinggoogleit.com/

My favorite part about the site is this image:

I hope they were wearing clean underwear

Car-accidents.com is a website that shows pictures and stories from hundreds of car accidents. Most of the stories are cautionary and the fatal ones are very sad.

Here is one that is amazing and not a downer:

The driver was waiting in line at the toll booth on I-294 in Chicago when he was rear ended by a delivery truck.
The driver of the pickup truck suffered a broken nose and some bruises.

For the really lonely and pathetic

Imaginary Girlfriends is an online service that for $45 for a 2 month period will set you up with a fake girlfriend. The for-hire girlfriends will call, email, send pictures, chat, and even send you snail mail…all so you can gloat to your friends about your non-existant love life.
Currently there is only one girlfriend available for hire, but they are accepting applications for 18 or older “models” that would like to be a potential imaginary girlfriend and “writers” that would be willing to write material for the “models”.
