November 9th, Firefox turned 1 (1.0 to be exact). To celebrate, I’m featuring some essential extensions including some you won’t find on Mozilla’s site. Of course, to enjoy these you’ll need to get Firefox 1.0
- Spellbound – Spell check for text boxes
- ForecastFox – Get weather icons in your status bar
- Calendar – An iCal based calendar application
- fireFTP – Transfer files via FTP from inside Firefox
- FoxyTunes – Control iTunes from your status bar
*All of these extensions are 1.0/Mac compatible
For those of you not browsing with Firefox, here are a couple other nice free applications based on Mozilla’s Gecko engine.
This free application is a robust planning/scripting tool for film and video projects. An online feature allows you to maintain these projects online through celtx.com. This tool is as feature rich as many commercial suites.
This spawn of Mozilla is a WYSIWYG HTML editor that supports CSS. The suite includes an FTP site manager and more.
Thanks for stopping by. Have fun with this week’s gang, and meet me back here next week for more.
