Back from San Fran, and tag, I'm 'it' -- Firefox add-ons

2007-04-29 22:18:00

I just got back from two weeks out in San Francisco at the OSAF offices. It was a great trip, and as always I really enjoyed the wonderful OSAF hospitality -- something that I always try my best not to take for granted.

This time around, with the exception of a couple of nights in a hotel, I crashed at Adam's place. That was great fun, although it was a bit of work trying to keep up with those younger dudes. :) Just don't have the stamina I used to have. We drank a decent quantity of beer, and I got my feet wet with Python and Django.

Now I'm back here in Houston, trying to work through the inevitable pile of stuff that accumulates while you're gone -- but I figured I'd take a quick sec to respond to Mikeal's tag. The topic is "Firefox add-ons you can't live without." Here are mine:

  1. Firebug -- I'm a Web UI developer, 'nuff said.
  2. Adblock -- Makes browsing the Web bearable. Even Yahoo doesn't induce seizures anymore.
  3. Web Developer -- See number 1, above.
  4. Foxmarks -- This add-on actually got me using bookmarks again. (As an aside, I used it at my wife's family's place in Japan, and the localized Japanese-language install was perfect.)
  5. Sage -- I have fairly modest feed-reader needs, so I love that it just uses my bookmarks, and that I can use a custom stylesheet.

That's the lot. I'm scratching my head trying to figure out who to tag here -- I guess it might be cool to tag Travis with the "Firefox add-ons" question. Maybe that will give him a reason to get off his sorry ass and make a blog post. :)

“Web Developer”? An add-on? purrrrrk!

cough I see no links in there … (I use my blogspot bookmarklet for generating stuff like this, even when I’m writing in my wiki … block-select, click, HeyPresto.)

p.s. once upon a time (NS3 Gold!!) History was really useful. I hope someday someone at Moz returns that functionality.
