Fun With Firefox

Maybe you've heard of or used the internet browser Firefox. But are you maximizing its potential by using add-ons?

Add-ons for Students:

Delicious Bookmarks: Delicious is a social bookmarking site that lets you bookmark and organize websites of interest; the add-on speeds up the process.

Facebook Toolbar: Use Facebook without leaving your current page.

Internote: Post "sticky notes" on web pages.

MeeTimer: Track, time and group your online activity...and eliminate procrastination.

Reminder Fox: Never forget important dates or tasks again.

Zotero: Collect and manage citation information from your browser.


Adding Search Engines: IMDB, Flickr, Webster's and dozens of other search engines are available.

Google Preview: See thumbnails of your search results.

Hyperwords: Highlight any online text (linked or not) and search for news, images, definitions, translations, photos, videos, blog entries, maps or shopping links.


Cool Iris: Save and share photos and video using a gorgeous interface and cool "3D wall" effect.
