Your Firefox Can Do That? Podcast

Listen to this podcast while you watch the PowerPoint presentation by Rachel Bridgewater of Washington State University Library - Though it does have the libary 'slant', it covers the range from why you would want to use Firefox, the characteristics, and various extensions.


Some of my favorites:

  • Answers - Just point at any word, hold the Alt key and click.  Upon letting go, an Answer Tip in the form of a bubble pop-up will appear with more information explaining the term. 


  • Book Burro
  • Clipmarks - With Clipmarks, you can clip the best parts of web pages. Whether it's a paragraph, sentence, image or video, you can capture just the pieces you want without having to bookmark the entire page.
  • Cooliris Previews - Cooliris Previews gives you the power to browse and share Web links and rich media faster. Just mouse over any link, and the Cooliris preview window immediately appears to show you the content. To email it, just click.
  • del.icio.us - Keep, share and discover all of your favorite things.  This official extension integrates with Firefox to increase your social bookmarking pleasure!
  • Fast Video Download - Fast Video Download can save embedded video files from video-hosting servers, such as You Tube, Blip.TV, Google Video, etc.


  • Forecast Fox - Get highly customizable weather forecasts from AccuWeather.com, and display it unobstrusively in any toolbar or statusbar
