Portable Flash player in Portable Firefox

firefox-portable-edition

Yes, you have your own set of portable applications – your secret super portable software weapons. I understand, it’s like click and run, your cyber veins are screaming to forget native installation. No more to installation cycles!

You got your portable Firefox, Firebird, Ccleaner, KompoZer, UTorrent, VLC, Gimp and a host of other apps like portable games. Then you fire-up your portable Firefox with your custom set of bookmarks, plug-ins and settings. Continue reading

H33t Torrent Site down

———————————————————————————–

The popular website h33t.com had been down since January 2, 2009 and has never been back up until now. Some members expressed concern that the famed torrent site might have been hijacked. Apparently, according to some users it was only temporary since it was a router issue and it’s on the way to being fixed.

———————————————————————————–

———————————————————————————–

UPDATE: H33t is now Up

As quoted on downtime
  • H33t is down for the first time in almost 3 years. It happened because the server payment didn’t make it due to the holidays.
    LD has addressed the issue and it will be up as soon as the host clears the payment.
    I’ve had direct contact from LD and the issue should be resolved shortly.

    There is no problem with the servers. The server is new and purchased by the membership. A brand new server was recently
    purchased and put online. The forums and other items run on a second server. Thats why both sites went down. It was due to hosting rather than server. H33t actually owns it’s servers rather than renting them.

The Top 10 Golden Rules of safe Internet surfing

Are you a World Wide Web lurker? Ok, no offense meant. You are a light-saber wielding Internet wanderer. Better? Here are my personal guidelines so that you’ll be in a much safer zone when browsing the net.

  • Lose IE (Internet Explorer) and use Firefox, K-Meleon or Opera instead
    • Forget about unfixed bugs, worms, and unpatched holes. I prefer Firefox and it’s better equipped due to the tons of plug-ins. It also lets you handle phishing and harmful javascript with ease.
  • Use a Firewall
    • Ever used ICS Firewall for Windows? Whew. Trash it and use Comodo or Sygate firewall. Keeps hackers and unauthorized intruders at bay.
  • Use an Antivirus, Antispyware, AntiAdware, AntiMalware, AntiKeylogger, Trojan and Worm remover
    • Its a cruel world out there. Without the necessary security measures, you are left defenseless. Like a lamb led to slaughter. Use AVG for real-time defense, and install Avast and NOD32 (but don’t activate them automatically) handy for manual scanning. AVG antispyware and Spybot Search and Destroy for those bots. Ad-aware cleans-up your PC from those pesky adwares. Threatfire is great for security threats and malwares. For CWS worms use CWS shredder. Continue reading

Google Notebook in your Firefox sidebar: Cool!

From Wikipedia: Google Notebook is a free service offered by Google that provides a simple way to save and organize clips of information when conducting research online. This personal browser tool permits a user to write notes, and to clip text, images, and links from pages during browsing. These are saved to an online “notebook” with sharing and collaboration features.

Gnotes

Google Notebook is an interactive scratch pad for any visited web pages, offering to collect web findings within the browser window.”

I really like Google Notebook. It’s like a scrapbook, bookmarker, GTD-lister, clipper and organizer all-in-one. The main problem with it is that it consumes too much browser space. The notebook extension for Firefox is pretty pale for minimalistic purposes. Solution? Try this:

googlenotebook

All you do is bookmark this link, then open the Properties for the new bookmark and check the box labeled “Load this bookmark in the sidebar.” Now, when you open the sidebar and click the bookmark, voila: your favorite scratch paper and post-it will now be lurking in your Firefox sidebar.

Darkhorse Firefox add-ons for 2008

ff

Last year I named the top Firefox add-ons for 2007. This time around, I have accumulated several add-ons which I believe should have been included in that list but which I had not bumped into last year. Why darkhorse? Well most of them I did not notice at first glance, but whew! What a blunder. Check this list, these extensions simply rocks!

Fission: Fission combines address bar and progress bar (Safari style). Very nice eye candy indeed.

Fancy Numbered Tabs: Replaces the close tab graphic with numbers to help with quick tab navigation via CTRL + [1-8] or Alt + [1-8]. Easy swapping by using the ctrl key. Looks great too.

Googlepedia: Shows you a relevant Wikipedia article along with your search results. Clicking links in the article will trigger new Google searches, making it a very useful research tool… When you start using it, browsing google will entirely be in a new level.

Disable XPI delay: Disables default delay when installing… Yeah, those delays suck big time!

QuickRestart: Ever needed to restart Firefox after enabling or disabling an extension, switching to a new theme, or modifying configuration files (such as userChrome.css or user.js)? Finally the best way to restart.

Split Panel: Open panel to left, bottom or right (left,middle or right click) with current URL from Split on context menu (right click on page) of the tab’s page. It lets you focus on one page and still gives you the reason to check on other tabs. Continue reading

Top 15 Mozilla Firefox Add-ons

Not using Firefox? Go back to the ancient times! Firefox is the trend-setter and industry standard in today’s internet browsers. It is user-friendly, a thousand times safer than IE, free, open-source, multi-platform, highly-customizable and a webmaster’s partner. Use it and be empowered over the web.

The full potential of Firefox is actually released through the numerous add-ons available for free use. These are the ones compatible with FF 2.0 and I highly recommend all of them. Here are my top 15 add-on favorites in random order:

Adblock Plus: Block those casino, porn and Spyware ads. At last!

Better Gmail: After using this, gmail experience will never be the same again. Promise!

DownThemAll!: A nifty and handy Firefox download manager. Never disappoints.

ErrorZilla: Eliminate that “try again” button. Here’s the next generation of error handling.

Public Fox: Tired of cleaning stuff people download? Use this to limit file downloading. Prevent browser changes. Public Fox blocks users from downloading unwanted files. Locks down Add-ons, Preferences, ‘about:config’, and Bookmarks. You can also block websites. All these you can do with a centralized password.

FoxyTunes: Very solid. Switch immediately for one player to another without the need of opening or clicking their launch icons. Foxytunes does it all for you inside Firefox. Continue reading
