Now here’s one with more humor in it – Digibody’s Caricature Maker. Caricature Maker lets you create caricatures from a preset selection of facial parts …Continue reading →

Firefox Quick Tip: Keep Tabs Separate

Yes, another post on dealing with tabs. I really think tabbed browsing is heaven-sent, but the default behaviors still need a bit of tweaking. Also, in the later incarnations of Firefox, it’s a good thing you can drag and drop around tabs to reorder them. If you’re like me who group open tabs (e-mail tabs on one side then news …Continue reading →

Web Raid: Get Nostalgic with a Web-Based Command Line Interface

Aaah, the days of command line and that darned DOS floppy. I remember getting to use 286 PCs with CGA monitors and 5 1/4 floppies back in the day (complete with clacky keyboards!). And yup, those where the days when the mouse was a luxury and everything was done using the keyboard (maybe that’s why I grew up to be …Continue reading →

Firefox Quick Tip: FishEyeTabs

Here’s a follow-up on the tab scrolling issue. So a good number of us share that same irk (a lot of my friends, Firefox fanatics at that, also hate it). How about an option that somehow makes tabs a bit more bearable, if not, solve that darned tab scrolling? FishEyeTabs creates that fisheye effect where tabs zoom in as you …Continue reading →

Web Raid: Another Color Tool for Design

A while back, I featured ColorJack Sphere – a web tool for picking colors. IMHO, it’s one of the best tools out there especially for graphic artists and web designers as it has a lot of features and options to export schemes to swatches. For those not so well-versed in design, well here’s what I think is a handier tool …Continue reading →

While I love tabbed browsing, I do hate scrolling tabs. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a useful feature. But I’m a control freak and I love seeing all my opened tabs for easy picking. Here’s how to tweak tab scrolling: Open the about:config page Find the key browser.tabs.tabMinWidth To allow smaller tab widths before scrolling, you can set the number …Continue reading →

Firefox Quick Tip: Need Keywords? Try KGen

Keywords, they say, are overrated. As for me, I get to use them for bookmarking and tagging. In any case, if your mental dictionary meets that occasional bump where you can’t think of a good keyword to describe a page, then better use a keyword generator. Yeah, yeah. So here I am suggesting another add-on and write about how great …Continue reading →

Firefox Quick Tip: Load Google Talk in Your Sidebar

Since I’ve consolidated all my contacts in my Gmail account, it has become more efficient for me to use GTalk as IM client. Too bad I have to have the client installed and running. Since I also do a lot of my work through my browser, why not load GTalk in my browser? Sure, Gmail already offers a solution by …Continue reading →

Firefox Quick Tip: How to Remove the Search Bar’s Magnifying Glass Go Button

Okay, so maybe I was too harsh with the Go button. But I do have to apologize to people who find it useful. It’s just that my circle of friends who are really advanced users never use it (being keyboard ninjas all). Seems like some people over at Forever Geek love the Go button. In any case, Micah (a poster …Continue reading →
