Firefox Tips

I decided to do a little series of posts I’ll call “Firefox Tips”. The goal isn’t to entertain or educate technical users. The goal is to be (mostly) quick little things that common users likely just overlook or never bother to explore. This will last “about a month” because I haven’t decided exactly how many […]

FishEyeTabs

FishEyeTabs is an interesting way to make the situation of having many tabs open more usable. It’s not without it’s flaws (gets rid of the red “X” for example). I wonder if this would be beneficial or just annoying to users. I think personally the effect would be better on a longer delay so that […]

More Tweaks

Just made a few tweaks/upgrades that should improve performance around here. Let me know if anything is acting strange or broken. Every so often I tend to do these, most are very minor.

mozPod 0.2a1

mozPod 0.2a1 is available. It’s alpha because it hasn’t been as well tested as of yet.

New Windows Media Plugin For Firefox

While disappointed at the lag, I’m thrilled to see support added. I wonder if they would be able to deploy with Microsoft Update to those […]

Wet

Damn you wet weather. Closing roads and making things a mess. 8 inches of rain in Central Park. The irony will be drought restrictions being posted later this summer.

Google Bouncing Checks?

On Friday I saw one of the more memorable Seinfeld Episodes “The Little Jerry“. The episode is most memorable for Kramer wanting a chicken and ending up with a rooster he names [Little] Jerry. It’s also known as the episode in which George dates a woman in prison, considering it the ideal girlfriend. Slightly less […]
