Firefox 2.0 and must have blogger extensions

Firefox 2

I’ve been playing with Firefox 2.0 today. What a great upgrade to an already great program. Of course what makes Firefox so great are the free extensions and how you can create the perfect browser to fit your needs.

Here is a list of extensions I’ve added that I think are must haves for any blogger.

Delicious Bookmarks: Love the feature where you can put tags on your bookmark toolbar. A great way to organize a lot of links

Performancing: I’ve been singing this extension for a long time now. Blogging is just easier with it.

OakFlickr4PFF: This is a new extension to me, but one I’m going to love. Basically you can now drag and drop pictures from your desktop into Performancing as you are writing an article. OakFlicker will auto upload the pictures to flickr and update the links in the post for you. How cool is that!

Download Statusbar: Keep that pesky popup from interrupting you and keeps the stats of your uploads in the status bar at the bottom.

FireFTP: Haven’t played with this one to much, but a built in ftp client is always a good thing to have.

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.

    My students love it. See their reflection responses on my blog.

    Hey Jeff, how easy is managing WordPress on the school server? Learnerblogs is a nightmare of outages these days, unfortunately. Should I take the plunge and go local?

  2. PS. I like CoolIris also. Xray vision for links w/o clicking.

    Aren’t Firefox add-ons great? It’s like free Christmas toys for geeks 🙂
