Got to make one last push on the link pile
Alvis has been gone on an out-of-state church-camp for the past week.
Lavie and I have been miserable.
She is due back in the next few hours so I have a range of things still do to.
More on Mozilla Weave.
Weave is basically Mozilla’s answer to provide unified “web-cloud based” synchronization of key Firefox components; history, bookmarks, cookies, and maybe even extension Add-ons.
Looks to be some neat stuff when released in the final form.
Here are some great other-blog posts on the details and progress so far.
First look: Mozilla Weave 0.2 puts Firefox in the cloud – ARS Technica
I haven’t had the time yet to get a test-system configured to give it a whirl. As soon as I do you can count on a post!
Removing bad about:config entries
If you have spent any time around this blog, you will know that from time to time I make recommendations of certain Firefox tweaks via the about:config settings.
What happens when you make a custom entry that you regret? How to you remove it?
In Firefox 3.0 it’s simple:
about:config, right click on the mistyped value and choose "Reset." Then, restart Firefox. The value will be deleted. Simple!
There you go!
NewsFox Next release
NewsFox – via Firefox Add-ons – is in my mind, simply the best RSS feed reader for Firefox integration there is.
New beta version has been released: NewsFox 1.0.2b3
This is clearly a beta version, so use only if you must be on the cutting edge. I have and the only issue with NewsFox 1.0.2b2 that I found was that the feeds didn’t auto-update upon NewsFox launch even though that is how the preference was set. Worked fine once I manually kicked off the feed check.
If you want a stable version, get it via the Add-ons page at the first link.
Now a word from Opera
Opera is got to be the fastest, slickest, sexiest web browser out there for Windows. Even over Firefox.
It’s very nice.
No, I’m not giving up Firefox…but I do reach for this when I need a rocket-fast web-surfing session for specific tasks (checking radar, looking up an unplanned Google search, etc.).
