Updating the Better Extensions for Firefox 3.6

Updating the Better Extensions for Firefox 3.6

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Now that the Firefox 3.6 beta is available for download (portable version is here), it’s time to start updating the Better Firefox extensions. The most popular ones, Better Gmail 2 and Better GReader, are already 3.6-compatible; the rest will come in the next few weeks. As always, join the Google Group to ask questions or make comments about the Better Firefox extensions. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle...

Modify Firefox for Your Netbook

Modify Firefox for Your Netbook

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Finally gave into my netbook lust and got an Eee PC. (It’s for my better half, of course. Ahem.) But since it’s not the most minimalist browser on the market, I had to modify Firefox to trim down extra UI bits and make it more netbook-friendly. Over at Lifehacker this morning, I published my full list of userChrome.css tweaks that maximize Firefox 3.5’s viewing area on netbooks. (adsbygoogle...

How to Edit Wikipedia

How to Edit Wikipedia

The Wall Street Journal reports that only 13% of Wikipedia contributors are women. What the what? Ladies, obviously we need to step it up. Here’s my personal experience of becoming an editor, and how to contribute to Wikipedia. Excuse me while I hang my head in shame for not making any new edits since 2007.

August Recap at Harvard Business: Whiteboards, Business Cards, Google and Bookmarks

August Recap at Harvard Business: Whiteboards, Business Cards, Google and Bookmarks

Been wearing my virtual business suit over at the Work Smarter blog at Harvard Business Online, but been remiss in posting my articles here. Here’s a recap of what I covered during August: Instantly Transcribe a Whiteboard with Your Cameraphone — using Evernote and Qipit Forget the Business Card. Just Google Me — meant this post a bit more tongue-in-cheek than most commenters took it, but still a strong believer in the importance of your name Google-ability Should Your...

TWiG Tip: Click To: to Launch Gmail’s Contact Chooser

TWiG Tip: Click To: to Launch Gmail’s Contact Chooser

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. This week Gmail engineers added a richer contact interface for filling in the To:, Cc:, and Bcc: fields when you’re composing a new email message. While address auto-completion has been available for some time now, the new Contact Chooser lets you check multiple recipients off a list. Click on the To:, Cc:,...

Save Cash with Web-Based Money Managers

Save Cash with Web-Based Money Managers

My latest story for Macworld tackles one of the more interesting types of new web applications: it’s called Save money with Web-based money managers. Online banking is one thing, but third-party financial aggregators like Mint and Wesabe really push the limits of consumers’ willingness to take security risks for the conveniences of email notifications and simple budgeting capabilities. My research for this article is what inspired my post about why I stopped being paranoid...

Import Facebook Phone Numbers into Your Google Contacts

Import Facebook Phone Numbers into Your Google Contacts

Android users with Facebook friends who list their phone number in their profiles will love this: Brad Fitzpatrick offers a Greasemonkey script that exports those phone numbers to AddressBookr and offers to add/merge them into your Google Contacts. Even though this was posted last November, I just gave it a test run and it worked like a charm. Thanks, Nick!

Twitalytic Alpha Preview–Archiving, Curating, and Threading Tweets

Twitalytic Alpha Preview–Archiving, Curating, and Threading Tweets

Been hacking away at a personal programming project, tentatively named Twitalytic, a web application that archives your tweets and mentions and gives you useful data about your friends and followers on Twitter. (Here’s some background on why the heck I’d ever want to archive the ephemeral chatter that is on the Twitter.) Anyway, after a few months I’ve collected a teensy bit of data, so I wanted to make sharing replies to my lazyweb tweets easier. To that end, today I...

Free Tools to Back Up Your Cloud Data

Free Tools to Back Up Your Cloud Data

Cloud computing lets you store your data in web applications and access it from any browser, anywhere—but that doesn’t mean you don’t need a backup plan. Next time your favorite web site is down or you’re locked out of an account, make sure you’ve got the crucial info you need where you can get to it: on your computer. “But I don’t need backup if my data’s in the cloud,” you say. “Big companies with lots of servers are better...

New Tech Gets Deployed “the Web Way”

New Tech Gets Deployed “the Web Way”

Anil Dash makes the compelling argument that small incremental upgrades using easily-hackable technologies is the most effective way to get new features deployed across the web–as opposed to installing monolithic, multi-requirement software like Google Wave. When it comes to realtime-enabling sites, the Pushbutton web uses “the web way,” and Google Wave will go “the Wave way.” Which will succeed? Only time will tell, but these days I’m just as (if not...
