Robert Ollenbuttel wrote me and said he’s using the ESBN Firefox Extension to try to make it harder for people to wholesale copy his blog posts. I’ll have to try that out and see how it works but he says if you use it you’ll always be able to tell who originally wrote the content you’re looking at (if it was generated using the ESBN extension).
Yesterday at Northern Voice we had a panel discussion called “geeking out.” My part of the panel was spent talking about Firefox extensions. Here’s an audio recording that Kevin Marks did. Huh? Hey, I’m interested in the topic and wanna know which Firefox extensions people find useful. Face-to-face with 100+ geeks you learn a lot that you can’t learn by reading random blogs. Mack Male took notes. “some of which include: Session Saver, Fangs, PDF Download, Download Status, Signature, Fasterfox, Web Developer, Firebug, etc.”
My favorites? Greasemonkey (lets you add all sorts of new behaviors, required for the cocomment greasemonkey script), IE Tab (lets you put IE inside Firefox), Performancing (lets you blog pages you visit), and Del.icio.us (lets you tag your pages and add them to Del.icio.us)
What are your favorite Firefox extensions? Here’s a list of the most popular ones.
