Review @ Lifehacker

“Firefox: If you hate having to search through your folders every time you change the type of file or directory you’re saving to—and we certainly do!—Save File To helps you make custom context menus for file saving bliss…”

Add-On Compatibility Reporter

Posted: Friday, February 19, 2010 by gareon in Add-ons, Browsers, Firefox

“Maybe you’ve seen your favorite extensions fall behind when new Firefox releases roll out, but you haven’t known what to do about it. A new-ish Mozilla add-on not only enables technically incompatible extensions for testing, but makes reporting actual incompatibilities easy…”

When I started this blog nearly 5-years ago I would have no idea how much it would grow. I spend a lot of my time breaking testing Firefox and many of the posts lately have been more technical or release news related. I am still quite active over on Go Firefox! and have been seeing a lot great news items being posted over there. I keep making notes to myself to post those articles on the blog, but just either get too caught up working on something else or just don’t have the time.

I’ve known Gareon for some time now and he is usually the one who is posting all the great Firefox related articles over on Go Firefox!. So, I have added him as a contributor to the blog, so look for more posts in the future.
