Twitkit for Twitter in your Firefox browser June 17, 2008

Yet another Twitter app.

Twitkit is in beta right now but it’s working pretty well.

I like the keyboard shortcut to get it to open and the fact that it’s not open all the time (a la Digsby et al).

When Twitter works of course 😉

Download it here

Now all they need to do is make it work for Firefox 3…Experimental only (so you’ll need to log in) for Firefox 3 right now


FireNES lets you play Nintendo games for free in Firefox June 16, 2008

This is super cool.

Play any one of 2,500 (that’s right, 2,500) Nintendo games in Firefox (even Firefox 3) for FREE with this add on.

I couldn’t seem to get the Firefox extension from the add-ons tool, instead I went to Softronic to get it.

Some of the games don’t seem to load – like Tetris, or Pacman 😦 -, the graphics are really basic and the music is super annoying, but you can turn it off in options. Still, for a freebie that doesn’t require you to do much more than add a browser extension, I’ll take it.

Here’s to a productive afternoon…



Make text AND pictures bigger in Firefox 3 June 9, 2008

OK. I’m getting into this Firefox 3.

I’ve just realised I don’t need to mourn the my loss of my ‘No Squint’ add-on because FF3 has a built in ability to zoom in and out. And not just the text either, which was always a problem with No Squint. It also increases the size of the pictures. Very nice.


How to?

Simply press CTRL and + to increase and CTRL and – to decrease. Easy peasy.
