Discovering New Firefox Add-ons

ScribeFire Blog Editor :: Add-ons for Firefox I was perusing the latest issue of Laptop Magazine (July 2009) and there was an excellent article in it on “10 Indispensable Firefox Add-Ons” by Kenneth Butler.  Since I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser of choice, I was quite interested to see what the article’s author would recommend.  ScribeFire is one add-on that is touted as helpful to the blogger.  It sits as an icon on your taskbar and then, as you are surfing the Web and you find interesting things that you want to blog about, you can bring up ScribeFire and be writing a post about what you are viewing and then you can post it to your blog without leaving the website.  It would appear that you can add pictures and do all of the normal editing that you would be able to do in Dashboard mode within WordPress (just as an example, since I use WordPress for my blogging).  I know that there are plenty of times when I am surfing the Web and come across things that I think might be of interest to my blog readers and this seems like it will be a good tool to use to fire off a quick blog post as I’m doing my surfing.

Read It Later: Save Your One Read Wonders The other tool that I decided to add to Firefox was Read It Later.  This handy little app gives you the ability to simply click on a little check mark on your address bar when you find something that looks interesting but you don’t have the time to really look it over right then.  The add-on saves the link for you and later, when you have more time, you can click on an arrow beside a little “book” icon and a drop-down list will appear with all the links that you have saved.  As you read them, you can mark them “read” and then have the option of saving them to various places like Delicious.  You can add tags to your saved links, making searching for a particular topic easier.  You can also access your unread pages across different computers or devices, such as the iPhone.  Another neat feature is that you can arrange to read your saved pages “offline”, a nice touch if you know that you will be offline for awhile.

If these sound interesting to you, you can click on the links I’ve provided and read more about them
